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  Bone mineral density in polycystic ovary syndrome

In the study to evaluate whether there are any differences in bone mineral density (BMD) between normal weight and obese adolescents suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with oligo/amenorrhea, posted in PubMed, indicated that of 37 adolescents with PCOS, 12 (32%) were obese with BMI ≥25, of which 9/12 (75%) were hyperandrogenic. The control group consisted of 40 normal weight eumenorrheic girls. The PCOS group overall had lower lumbar spine BMD values as compared to the controls (0.91 vs 0.97 g/ cm(2), P = 0.033). The normal weight PCOS group had lower BMD at the spine (0.90 vs 0.97 g/ cm(2), P = 0.027), trochanter (0.66 vs 0.71 g/ cm(2), P = 0.039) as well as volumetric distal tibial core sites (268 vs 296 mg/ cm(3)) as compared to eumenorrheic controls, but there were no significant BMD differences between the obese PCOS group and the eumenorrheic controls.
