Abstract

Introduction: This study is likely to explore the risk factors of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) creating impact over such non-communicable disease. Aim: To investigate the burden of non-communicable disease risk factors in PCOS subjects in South Indian Population of India. Materials and Methods: 103 female and their first-degree relatives (at least 3 members from each family) Patients with a clinical diagnosis of PCOS attending KMC hospital, Mangalore and KMC, hospital, Mangode, Cherpulassery; Kerala, medicine outpatient department were included in the study after obtaining informed consent. Diagnosis of PCOS was confirmed. Results: Prevalence of low physical activity, low fruit and vegetable intake, diabetes, hypertension, yslipidimia, BMI, tobacco use, alcohol use and family history. Conclusion: The data highlighting the need for careful monitoring and control of non-communicable disease risk factors in PCOS patients in south India. The prevalence of most risk factors was generally high across a range of housewives and students.
