Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) increased risk for spirometric restriction, according to research at ERS 2019.
- Results showed PCOS was associated with a 10% higher risk for spirometric restriction without an indication of pleiotropy.
- Similar results were seen using adjusted Mendelian randomization methods for pleiotropy and limiting analysis to women without asthma or SNPs in European women.
- Estimates were also similar among women with normal weight and overweight.
- No association was detected between obstructed airflow and PCOS.
