The importance of insulin resistance, compensatory hyperinsulinemia, and its effects, many of which have adverse effects on both the metabolic and reproductive organs. Treatment options for insulin resistance/hyperinsulinemia include lifestyle changes, exercise, weight loss, and or the use of thiazolidinediones (TZDs) or metformin. Weight loss measures are essential to the treatment of this condition. Lifestyle, exercise, and dietary changes, weight loss has been shown to reduce hyperandrogenism, increase ovulation and pregnancy rates, and improve immune conflict. Numerous studies have suggested that metformin plays an important role in the treatment of PCOS including restoring ovulation, weight loss, reducing androgen cycle levels, reducing the risk of miscarriage, and reducing the risk of gestational diabetes (GDM).PCOS patients may develop severe dyslipidemia, such as increased LDL-C and TG levels and decreased HDL-C levels associated with hyperandrogenism, IR, and chronic inflammation. Therefore, statins are widely used in the treatment of PCOS patients to reduce inflammation, oxidative stress, hyperandrogenemia, and other metabolic disorders. Statins have been reported to block HMG-CoA inhibiting mevalonate synthesis, which is a necessary substrate for cholesterol production and can be used to synthesize other important lipid links, therefore, statins can improve lipid status and hyperandrogenism.
