Abstract

The prevalence of hypertension and obesity among the adolescents with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) in Shiraz is a crosssectional, descriptive study was conducted on 3200 high-school students in 2010. 146 adolescents were diagnosed with PCOS by an endocrinologist. Besides, 46 healthy adolescents were selected as the control group. Comparison of the prevalence of obesity and hypertension was made based on Ferranti scale. The results also revealed a significant difference between the two groups regarding the rate of android obesity above the 90th percentile (P=0.037). However, no significant difference was found between the study groups concerning systolic and diastolic blood pressure above the 90th percentile (P=0.551 and P=0.758, respectively). In Conclusion, the prevalence of hypertension, obesity, and android obesity was higher among the students suffering from PCOS compared to the healthy ones.
