Abstract

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder affecting a lot of women around the world. PCOS patients can have difficulties becoming pregnant and have an increased chance of adverse pregnancy outcomes like developing gestational diabetes (GDM). Women with PCOS who develop GDM seem to have an increased insulin resistance before pregnancy, which increases to levels higher than seen during a normal pregnancy. To give an overview of how to predict insulin resistance in these women, pre-pregnancy markers for insulin resistance will be discussed in this literature review by analysing what is known from the latest research. The insulin sensitivity chances of a normal pregnancy will be compared to a pregnancy with decreased insulin sensitivity.
