In brief: Insulin and ovaries

Pcos is a manifestation of Insulin resistance, which indicates pre-diabetes or diabetes 2.
There are many derangments including those of adrenal androgen, a higher free testosterone, eradication of/or irregular cycles.Hirsuitism and acne increase with these androgens. A woman's cycle becomes annovulatory. Glucophage (metformin) is the preferred treatment of the problem. Clomiphene is used to help ovulation.
