Introduction Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) are often overweight and have a central fat distribution (1) . It is well known that abdominal obesity is associated with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome (MS) and increased risk of

resistance was evaluated by the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) with the following formula: HOMA-IR = FINS (mU/L) × FPG (mmol/L)/22.5 ( 16 ). A Cobas e601 analyzer (Roche Diagnostics GmbH) was used to measure FT3, free thyroxine

, 15 ). It has been suggested that PTH may lead to weight gain by inhibition of lipolysis ( 16 ) and thereby promote insulin resistance ( 15 ). Thereby, PHPT is related to manifestations of the metabolic syndrome, and potential effects on body

underlying mechanisms of PCOS are not fully understood yet though obesity and insulin resistance are regarded as major risk factors for hyperandrogenism in PCOS due to abnormal sex steroid production in ovaries and adrenals ( 2 ). Especially, the differential

120 min after the ingestion of dextrose. Insulin resistance (IR) was defined by fasting insulin levels of >12.2 μU/mL (84.7 pmol/L) ( 34 ) and/or a HOMA-IR value of ≥2.7 ( 35 ). Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) was defined as fasting plasma glucose ≥126
