What causes the syndrome of polycystic ovaries?

The vast majority of cases develop spontaneously. However, one of the main reasons for the appearance of pathology is considered a hereditary factor. Studies of recent years indicate that the excessive production of androgens by the ovaries is directly related to the level of insulin in the blood and develops precisely because of its excessively high concentration. The predisposing factor that contributes to the development of the syndrome is overweight, so the only effective way to prevent the disease to date are activities that help maintain a healthy weight of women.
