Backgroud: Though insulin resistance (IR) is common in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), there is no agreement as to what surrogate method of assessment of IR is most reliable.Aim: We compared methods based on measurements of fasting insulin and either fasting glucose (HOMA-IR and QUICKI), or triglycerides (TAG) (McAuley index) with insulin resistance (Belfiore) index (IRI) derived from glucose and insulin during a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)...
