Androgen levels predict risk of type 2 diabetes in women with PCOS

A new way of assessing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes for women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has been developed by the University of Birmingham. PCOS is a common condition affecting around 1 in 5 women during their life. The condition causes non-dangerous cysts to develop on the ovaries which can affect fertility. The condition tends to also be characterised by having higher levels of male hormones than normal. These androgen hormones, such as androstenedione and testosterone, are also present in healthy women but at lower levels.
