Introduction:To check the levels of insulin in Poly cystic ovarian syndrome patients and compare them with normal patients. Women with Poly cystic ovarian disorder have high odds of insulin protection with an expanded danger of metabolic ailments. It is watched that obese PCOS ladies are more prone to high insulin levels. Hence, the aim of my study is to analyse the status of insulin in PCOS patients.

Materials and methods:
Patients were selected from those attending the out patient department of Saveetha Dental College, and hospitals and divided into two groups as follows
Inclusion Criteria
In women with PCOD, high insulin levels can cause the ovaries to secrete more androgen hormones as testosterone.Having insulin resistance can increases the risk of developing diabetes.Individuals with the age group of 20-30 years PCOS Patients.
Exclusion Criteria
Individuals with other systemic illness like cardio vascular disease, Renal failure, Stroke, endocrine illness.Individuals with acute illness like fever.Immunocompromised individuals.
Sample collection
Informed consent was obtained from the patient before sample collection. 5ml of fasting venous blood was collected and distributed in plain collection tubes and centrifuged in 3000rpm for serum. Then serum was separated and analysed to estimate the Fasting blood sugar by GOD-POD method by using ERBA CHEM 5 plus analyser. Insulin was analysed by ROBONIK ELISA READER. Insulin resistance was calculated by HOMO-IR calculation.
All the data were analysed by using SPSS package. Paired sample t test analysis was done to find out significant differences between the two groups. All the tests were considered significant at p 30) and 20– 25% of lean ladies (BMI1.9 ? Early Insulin Resistance
>2.9 ? Significant Insulin Resistance

PCOS is a heterogeneous disorder. In the phenotypic range, we can discover fat, perpetually insulin-safe ladies, and at the other extraordinary, lean PCOS patients with set apart with hyperandrogenemia however without insulin protection. All things considered, up to this point, there have been few examinations 13,14 led on bigger gatherings of PCOS ladies to assess whether insulin protection is constantly associated with PCOS and, subsequently, regardless of whether the greater part of slender PCOS ladies is in this way insulin safe or whether insulin protection is just identified with body weight. Barely any examinations discovered diminished insulin affectability just in relationship with stomach corpulence or in lean PCOS ladies on the off chance that they were likewise hyperinsulinemic. Insulin protection is a noteworthy hazard factor for diabetes mellitus type 2.15,16 It is nearly connected with disorder X and is most likely one of its focal highlights PCOS ladies demonstrate an example of cardiovascular hazard factors putting them at a more serious danger of cardiovascular events(Fig.1 and Fig.2)  17,18,19
Since no particular sole is known for the reason for PCOS, it is multifactorial. 20

In PCOS, a portion of the physiological occasions inside the ovarian cycle and folliculogenesis are changed. 21

Barrenness related with PCOS has been ascribed to various variables, including oligo?an ovulation, broken gonadotrophin emission, hoisted foundational and additionally nearby ovarian androgen levels, and brokenness of any or a few ovarian development factors and their coupling proteins. As of late, thinks about have concentrated on fundamental and neighborhood impacts of IR and its optional impacts—foundational, metabolic and ovarian. 22,23

PCOD patients confront numerous medical problems like metabolic infections. There is an unmistakable view that PCOD patients have expanded odds of diabetes write 2. 24,25


Patients who went by Saveetha dental school were chosen and were ordered into two gatherings. Gathering 1-typical females in the age bunch 20-30years and assemble 2-PCOD patients. The insulin levels of the patients were looked at and the levels were noted. It was seen that the Levels of the insulin in PCOD patients was higher than those in the typical patients. This is on the grounds that PCOD patients are impervious to insulin which influences it to discharge more androgen hormones. It was seen that ordinary patient’s insulin level was 3.63±2.02 though in patients with PCOD, the insulin level was 12.34±5.09. The measure of insulin protection offered by the patient is additionally Calculated. The insulin protection in typical patients was 0.83±0.43 and those with PCOD had 3.05±1.37. From the outcomes, plainly the insulin levels of PCOD patients is higher than the insulin levels of the typical patients. Likewise, the insulin protection is high for patients with PCOD.
