PCOS is a heterogeneous and complex syndrome. There is a high prevalence of PCOS in Indian women, especially in adolescents.
Dr. Suchitra Pandit, noted Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and Head, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital, discusses in detail the pathophysiology of PCOS. Recent conference guidelines suggest that insulin sensitizers such as inositol (myoinositol and d chiro inositol) may be successfully used for management of PCOS patients with anovulatory infertility in improving the hormonal profile and restoring ovulation. The growing clinical evidence on the emerging role of myoinositol and d chiro inositol is examined at length and the various clinical trials reviewed.
