Estado nutricional de portadoras de síndrome dos ovários policísticos segundo os diferentes índices antropométricos
Women with polycystic ovary syndrome have several hormonal and metabolic changes in common, among which peripheral insulin resistance stands out, which manifests itself more frequently in those with overweight or obesity. The objective of this study was to evaluate the nutritional status of patients with polycystic ovary syndrome and to correlate the most recent anthropometric indexes proposed with traditional ones. Methods: The research had a quantitative, transversal and analytical approach.
... he participants were 40 women, aged 20 to 59 years, from the city of Jaguaruana - Ceará. A questionnaire was applied in order to obtain information about cultural and socioeconomic history, clinical history, history of the current disease and revision of the body systems pertinent to the disease. The body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), waist-hip ratio (WHR), body adiposity index (ABSI), body shape index and body shape index, which is an indicator of premature mortality and excess abdominal adiposity and body roundness index (BRI), which is a great predictor of the percentage of body fat and visceral adipose tissue. Results: When assessing BMI, it was seen that eutrophy was the predominant category (40%). However, 55% of the participants had some degree of excess weight (pre-obesity or obesity). Most participants were not at risk for cardiovascular disease in relation to the diagnoses of WC and WHR. As for the new indices, it was inferred that the predominant body shape in the sample is slightly rounded. Conclusions: It was found that the participants within the largest ABSI tertiles were also shown to have higher WHR values. As for the BRI, a directly proportional relationship was observed among the averages of its tertiles and those of the traditional indices/measures. The association between traditional and the most recently proposed anthropometric indices/measures allows for a better and more complete interpretation of nutritional status, especially if performed in a serial manner
