Abstract

The high prevalence of elevated A1C in non-obese patients with PCOS and an increased risk of elevated A1C associated with PCOS suggest that PCOS itself may be associated with abnormal A1C status. Assessing A1C level in young, non-obese patients with PCOS may be a useful new approach to screening for diabetes.
