Abstract

What is the prevalence of insulin resistance (IR) and the contributions of intrinsic and extrinsic IR in women diag- nosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) according to the Rotterdam criteria? We report novel clamp data in Rotterdam diagnosed PCOS women, using World Health Organization criteria for IR showing that women with PCOS have a high prevalence of IR, strengthening the evidence for an aetiological role of IR in both National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Rotterdam diagnosed PCOS in lean and overweight women.
