Summary of "Effect of Lifestyle Intervention on Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in Overweight and Obese Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis."

The effects of lifestyle interventions (LSIs) on cardiometabolic risk factors in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are controversial. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effectiveness of LSI on cardiometabolic risk in women with PCOS. We reviewed five databases for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) published between 2012 and December 2016, evaluating the effect of LSI among adult, reproductive age group, overweight, and obese women with PCOS. Outcome measures included weight change, homeostatic model assessment-insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR), total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). A total of 564 studies were screened; 35 full text studies assessed for eligibility, 20 excluded with reasons, 15 included in the systematic review, and 9 studies from 8 RCTs included in a meta-analysis. LSI resulted in significant reduction in weight in sensitivity analyses [study 5 dietary arm as intervention: standardized mean difference (SMD) = -0.81 (95% confidence interval {CI} = -1.24 to -0.39); study 5 combination arm as intervention: SMD = -0.85 (95% CI = -1.26 to -0.45)], HOMA-IR overall [study 5 dietary arm: SMD = -1.46 (95% CI = -2.72 to -0.20); study 5 combination arm SMD = -1.50 (95% CI = -2.76 to -0.23)], and LDL overall [SMD = -1.06 (95% CI = -2.00 to -0.12)]. LSI was more beneficial than Metformin in decreasing LDL [SMD = -2.60 (95% CI = -5.15 to -0.05)] but similar to comparator group in terms of TC, TG, and HDL ( > 0.05). Short-term LSI can effectively improve weight, insulin resistance, and lipid profile and could be recommended as first-line therapy in overweight and obese PCOS women to reduce cardiometabolic risk.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.

A status with BODY WEIGHT that is above certain standard of acceptable or desirable weight. In the scale of BODY MASS INDEX, overweight is defined as having a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg/m2. Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE), hence overweight does not equal "over fat".

An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.

Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.

Pattern of behavior which predisposes certain individuals to increased risk for contracting disease or sustaining personal injury. These behaviors may cluster into a risky lifestyle.
