Parents of Women With Ovary Disorder at Risk For Heart Disease

Friday, 07 Oct 2011 11:36 AM


Parents of women with polycystic ovary syndrome are more likely to have some form of cardiovascular disease, researchers in Australia found.

Scientists at the University of Adelaide studied the medical histories of more than 700 women born in the mid 1970s to find the link, they said in a statement. The research is published today in the online journal PLosONE.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder affecting about 10 percent of women of reproductive age. It is one of the most common endocrine disorders in women and a leading cause of infertility, the researchers said.

Mothers of women with the ailment are more likely to have any form of cardiovascular disease, and almost twice as likely to have high blood pressure, than mothers of women without the condition, the scientists said. Fathers of women with the syndrome are more than twice as likely to have heart disease, and more than four times as likely to have a stroke.
