The present study aimed to find out the epidemiological correlates among women with PCOS in South India. 100 patients diagnosed with PCOS, between (18-40) years, were selected. A standard PCOS questionnaire was given & relevant data was collected. Patients were grouped according to their blood groups along with their age & BMI. Diabetes & family history were also considered (p 0.05 significant). In this study showed that, majority of the females diagnosed of PCOS were between (21-30) years with an increasing trend being observed between BMI & ageing. Our data revealed that among the females belonging to O+ blood group, 57.7% (p 0.05) were overweight/obese (taken together). Also, 40% of the patients included in the study group were diagnosed cases of diabetes & 28% of females had family history of PCOS. Therefore the present study suggests that majority of O+ females diagnosed of PCOS, were obese/overweight. Also an increasing trend of BMI with ageing was observed. Diabetes & family history of PCOS were additive factors. So, early screening of O+ females in South India, between the age group of (21-30) years could be useful for early diagnosis of PCOS, which might help for better management & prevention of further complications.
