Leucocytosis in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) explained by obesity and insulin resistance.
Low-grade chronic inflammation predicts cardiovascular outcomes and is observed in women with polycystic ovary syndrome
(PCOS). In the study of seventy pairs of women with and without PCOS,
matched for age, body mass index (BMI) and IR (HOMA, QUICKI and Avignon
index), generated from a larger cohort of 103 women with and 104
BMI-matched women without PCOS.to investigate whether this is entirely a
cause or consequence of insulin resistance (IR), posted in PubMed,
found that Low-grade inflammation occurs in PCOS. Increased hsCRP and
cytokines are associated with IR, but increased WCC is observed even
when IR is accounted for. The explanation for this and its clinical
significance is unknown.
