Abstract :

 PCOS   has  been  one  of   the major  public  health  problem  in  women  of   reproductive  age group in our country,  which  leads  to   various  medical  consequences. The  present  study  is aimed  at  assessing  the  relationship  of  lipid  profile  with  anthropometric  indices  in  PCOS women.  This  is  a  cross  sectional  study  where  500  PCOS  women  were  chosen  and  serum Triglycerides,  serum  Total  Cholesterol,  serum  LDL,  serum  HDL  were  measured. BMI  and WC  were  measured  for  the  same  patients  and  the  relationship  were  studied.

Results:  It  was  found  that  the  PCOS  women  with  BMI > 30  showed  elevated  sr.TGL, sr. Total cholesterol, sr.LDL and low HDL levels . Waist  circumference  was  found  to  have significant  influence  on  lipid  profile .  Hence  PCOS  patients  should  be  screened  for dyslipidemia  for  effective  prevention  of  cardiovascular  accidents.
