Abstract :

Hyperinsulinemia is considered by many researchers as the main cause of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of thioctic acid (Thioctacid-HR) on hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, menstrual function, the volume of the ovaries in patients with PCOS. 25 women with polycystic ovary syndrome received Thioctacid-HR, 600 mg per day within three months. 20 people observed the high-protein diet only. Determining the level of basal and glucose-stimulated insulin calculation of the index of insulin resistance and ovarian volume were performed before and after 3 months of treatment. Thioctic acid treatment improved menstrual function and a positive impact on the average volume of the ovary after 3 months of treatment. 80% of women returned to normal duration and frequency to settle ovarian-menstrual cycle. Every third patient with amenorrhea were induced menses, two patients the appearance of the dominant follicle. Normalizing the average volume of the ovary after 3 months of treatment occurred in 64% of cases. In the control group similar positive results after 3 months of treatment were absent. Three women-heterozygous carriers of 21-hydroxylase gene mutation had the same positive effects of influence of thioctic acid on hyperinsulinemia, ovarial volume, HOMA-IR, restoration of ovulatory cycles like patients in the main group. One in June 2015 gave birth to a healthy baby.
