Upcoming Webinar

PCOS and Insulin Resistance

This webinar is organized by the ASPIRE Reproductive Endocrinology Special Interest Group.

PCOS is a common endocrine disorder associated with different manifestations. It is well established that insulin resistance plays a vital role in the development and persistence of this dysfunction and is found in almost 90% of obese women having PCOS, asserting the fact that obesity has a synergistic action with impaired insulin action. Insulin resistance and hence the consequent hyperinsulinemia, contributes to the existing hyperandrogenaemia, leading to anovulation, followed by infertility in PCOS patients. Moreover, Insulin resistance is also critically responsible for various components of the metabolic syndrome in women.

ASPIRE’s SIG Webinar on “PCOS and Insulin Resistance” will update participants on the recent concepts of how insulin resistance affects women with PCOS, how we could diagnose it, and the need to diagnose it. The management of insulin resistance in PCOS women with infertility and those with metabolic dysfunction, will be addressed in details by the brilliant speakers of our webinar. This is one webinar of ASPIRE’s you should not miss! During the Q&A you will get answers to all your queries from the global experts of ASPIRE!
