Polikistik over sendromu, üreme çağında en sık görülen endokrinolojik hastalıktır ve anovulasyonun en sık nedenidir. İnsülin direncinin PKOS etyopatogenezinde rol oynayabileceği ve insülin duyarlılaştırıcıların PKOS hastalarında başarı ile kullanımları, yeni araştırmalara yol gösterici olmaktadır. B6 vitamininin steroizomeri olan myoinositol üzerine son zamanlarda çok sayıda çalışma yapılmaktadır ve bu çalışmaların sonuçlarında genel izlenim myoinositol kullanımının olumlu olduğu yönündedir.
Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common endocrinological disease in the reproductive age and most common cause of anovulation. Insulin resistance may play a role in the etiopathogenesis of PCOS and the successful use of insulin sensitizers in PCOS patients is giving new insights for the treatment for new studies. There have been many studies on myoinositol, the steroisomer of vitamin B6, and the general impression of these studies is that myoinositol use is positive.
