Prevalence of HbA1C in Different Categories of Obesity in Women With PCOS'A Propective Randomized Control Study
In view of recent suggestion of American Diabetes Association(ADA)to screen women with PCOS
for HbA1C,we intend to study its prevalence in all categories of obesity in women with PCOS.
Women with PCOS by Rotterdam criteria will be screened for insulin resistance by using
different techniques or tests.
Further, the sensitivity and specificity of HbA1C will be compared with sensitivity and
specificity of other insulin resistance markers such as OGTT, Free androgen index, free
testosterone, fasting insulin to glucose ratio, HOMA-IR and HOMA-B-CELL.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective
Prevalence of HbA1C in both arms of the cohort of subjects
HbA1C has been suggested as a potential marker for NIDDM in subjects with PCOS
