The aim of this study was to access and compare the level of vitamin D in PCOS patients and healthy women.
Materials and Methods: This was a case control study. 150 patients of PCOS and 150 age matched healthy controls were enrolled in this study. Serum level of Vitamin D was estimated by immunoassay method by using ELISA technique. The data were compared using independent t-test and chi square test wherever applicable.
Results: The total serum vitamin D level was found significantly (p<0> Conclusion: Hypovitaminosis D observed in PCOS cases indicated the possible involvement of vitamin D in the pathophysiological changes of the disease.
Keywords: Insulin resistance, PCOS, Vitamin D.
