Shackleton et al. (2004) studied steroid excretion in 8 patients diagnosed with ABS and 1 patient with a milder but related phenotype without skeletal or genital abnormalities. The steroid excretion pattern was consistent and distinctive in all 9 patients, and was significantly different from that measured in controls (p less than ). A high ratio of metabolites of the primary adrenal steroid precursors pregnenolone and progesterone to cortisol metabolites was the most characteristic feature for diagnosis. The authors stated that pregnanediol could be considered a hallmark analyte since it is essentially absent from the urine of normal individuals or those with other defects in steroid biosynthesis. Shackleton et al. (2004) proposed the use of this distinctive steroid metabolic profile as the primary biochemical parameter for the diagnosis of the ABS-like phenotype not associated with FGFR2 mutations.

Hirsutism is a bothersome hyperandrogenic manifestation of PCOS that may require at least six months of treatment before improvement begins. According to a 2015 Cochrane review, the most effective first-line therapy for mild hirsutism is oral contraceptives. 32 Spironolactone, 100 mg daily, and flutamide, 250 mg twice daily, are safe for patient use, but the evidence for their effectiveness is minimal. 32 Other therapies include eflornithine (Vaniqa), electrolysis, or light-based therapies such as lasers and intense pulsed light. Any of these can be used as monotherapy in mild cases or as adjunctive therapy in more severe cases. 33

An overnight dexamethasone suppression test should be performed in women with physical features of cortisol excess, such as hypertension, central obesity, facial plethora, easy bruising, striae, proximal muscle weakness and/or increased cervicodorsal-supra-clavicular fat. For this test, 1 mg of dexamethasone is administered orally at 11 ., and serum cortisol measurements are taken at 8 . the following morning. Serum cortisol levels below 5 μg per dL (140 nmol per L) make the diagnosis of Cushing's syndrome unlikely but are routinely present in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Cross-sectional data showed that a greater plasma n-6 PUFA concentration and n-6:n-3 PUFA ratio were associated with higher circulating androgens and that plasma LC n-3 PUFA status was associated with a less atherogenic lipid profile. LC n-3 PUFA supplementation reduced plasma bioavailable testosterone concentrations (P < ), with the greatest reductions in subjects who exhibited greater reductions in plasma n-6:n-3 PUFA ratios. The treatment of bovine theca cells with n-6 rather than with n-3 PUFAs up-regulated androstenedione secretion (P < ).

Most of the women tend to press the panic button fearing the PCOS but homeopathy is the apt treatment for this syndrome. Deciding which Homeopathic Treatment is suitable depends on the extent of the problem and also the physiological health of a woman because homeopathy is a holistic control and there are other factors of a woman’s health that has to be taken into consideration for an effective and long lasting control. It should also open the possibility of becoming fertile in the future for a women to bear progeny and experience maternal bliss once the condition is addressed effectively through homeopathy.
