A new research project at Hull York Medical School focusing on weight management in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is recruiting participants to trial the effects of different diets.
Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common hormone condition in women of reproductive age, affecting up to 20 per cent women in this age group both globally and in the UK.
Obesity is one of the traits associated with the condition along with hirsutism (unwanted hair), oligmenorrhoea (infrequent periods), reduced fertility and increased incidence of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in women with PCOS
Thozhukat Sathyapalan, Professor of Endocrinology at Hull York Medical School, said:
“Several studies have reported that around 30-80% of women with PCOS are overweight or obese, with obesity often being associated with worsening symptoms and long term health effects.
“Diet and lifestyle changes to promote weight loss among obese women with PCOS can improve many aspects of the condition including fertility and the development of type 2 diabetes, although the effect of one particular weight loss diet remains largely unexplored.”

|Liz Walker's presentation on Type 2 daibetes|
The newly formed research cluster SPARC (Social and Psychological Research into Long Term Conditions) held its first research symposium on February 2nd 2018, at the University of Hull. The symposium focussed on ‘Living with Long Term Conditions’ and provided an opportunity for University researchers and PhD students to present recent and ongoing research. This included studies which explored people’s experiences of living with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Further presentations explored forms of support for people with long term conditions provided by primary care and long terms conditions clinics, as well as the experiences of family carers who provide support from a distance.
