Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a disorder of hyperandrogenism and chronic anovulation affects 5% - 10% of all women.
Women with PCOS often have elevated cardiovascular risk factors.
A total of 244 PCOS cases were identified through the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology at Magee-Womens Hospital and were age-matched to 244 neighborhood controls.
The average age of cases and controls was 35.3 ± 7.4 and 36.7 ± 7.7. Women with PCOS compared to controls had substantially higher LDL-C and total cholesterol levels at each age group under 45 years after adjustment for body mass index, hormone use, and insulin levels.
In the over 40-year age group, little difference was noted between cases and controls.
Among cases and controls (<40), PCOS predicted LDL-C, total cholesterol and triglycerides, but did not have a significant effect on lipid levels in older cases and controls after controlling for the other variables.
The primarily pre-to perimenopausal PCOS cases =40 years of age have similar LDL-C and total cholesterol levels as their age-matched controls, probably reflecting the LDL-C increase with age among controls.
