Obesity is a medical condition of excess body fat accumulated overtime, while overweight is a condition of excess body weight relatively to the height. According to the Body Mass Index(BMI), a BMI between 25 to 29.9 is considered over weight, while a BMI of over 30 is an indication of obesity. According to the statistic, 68% of American population are either overweight or obese.

You can calculate your BMI index BMI= weight (kg)/ height (m2)

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is defined as endocrinologic diseases caused by undeveloped follicles clumping on the ovaries that interferes with the function of the normal ovaries as resulting of enlarged ovaries, leading to hormone imbalance( excessive androgen), resulting in male pattern hair development, acne,irregular period or absence of period, weight gain and effecting fertility. It effects over 5% of women population or 1 in 20 women.

The Studies of Influence of obesity on atherogenic dyslipidemia in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

In a case-control study conducted in an academic medical centre of population consisted of 54 women of fertile age with PCOS and 60 controls adjusted for age and BMI, by the University Hospital Dr. Peset and University of Valencia, posted in PubMed, showed that Lean PCOS women exhibited lower HDL cholesterol and apolipoprotein AI levels than controls, although these differences were not associated with alterations of lipoprotein subfractions. All obese subjects, whether PCOS or controls, displayed lipid parameters typical of atherogenic dyslipidemia, although the former group had lower levels of large HDL, higher levels of small HDL subfractions and a higher percentage of VLDL than the latter. These differences were associated with a greater prevalence of non-A LDL pattern (25.0%) in obese PCOS subjects than in obese controls (4.3%).
