When you’re diagnosing patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), you know we have to rule out other kinds of causes for an ovulation. once you do that and you often figure out that they are resistant to insulin, that their sugars are elevated, their cholesterol panels off and their androgen levels are up. You can make a big impact in their life because they suffer from obesity and if you can decrease that insulin resistance, you get them to get their weight off then you can have a patient who changes their outlook on themselves.
