Assessment of incidence and predictors of long-term metabolic complications of PCOS


Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder that affects women who are of childbearing age. It is associated with many complications including infertility, but also carries long-term complications such as excess weight, diabetes and high blood pressure. In this research project, we will compare women with PCOS to those without PCOS over time to try and understand what the key contributing factors are to the development of PCOS, the long-term metabolic complications of PCOS and in particular to study the effect of body weight.
