Dietary glycaemic index, glycaemic load and insulin resistance in lean and overweight women with polycystic ovary syndrome and controls
Proceedings of the Nutrition Society
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects £10 % of women of reproductive age in the UK (1) . Obesity and insulin resistance are common features of the syndrome with approximately 33 % of UK women with PCOS (wPCOS) being obese (2) and £80 % of wPCOS being insulin resistant (3) . Low-glycaemic index (GI) diets have been shown to be effective at improving insulin sensitivity and are proposed as a useful strategy for the management of insulin resistance in wPCOS (4) .
