Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional

Outcome Measure:

The purpose of this study is to understand how insulin function is affected in presence of sleep apnea in girls with PCOS between 13-18 years of age as compared to girls with PCOS without sleep apnea.

Outcome Description:

Obese adolescents with PCOS will be assessed for presence or absence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) at baseline. Obese PCOS with OSA will be compared with obese PCOS with out OSA for difference in Glucose Infusion Rate (GIR) as a measure of insulin resistance

Outcome Time Frame:

baseline to two years
