Audio conference: Insulin resistance and polycystic ovary syndrome

11/04/04

Experts highlight latest information on new treatment options

In the United States, an estimated 2.5 five million women suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS, which is considered the most common hormonal disorder in reproductive-age women, can cause significant insulin resistance and is the leading cause of infertility in women.

On Monday, November 8, 2004, The Endocrine Society will host an audio conference on diagnosing and treating PCOS. Leading experts will discuss diagnosis of PCOS as well as the role of weight reduction and insulin sensitizing agents in treating PCOS. An opportunity for questions and comments will be provided at the end of the presentations. Participation in the audio conference is open to the press.
