Background:
Data on the effects of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplementation on metabolic profiles among subjects with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are scarce. OBJECTIVE:
This study was done to evaluate the effects of CoQ10 supplementation on glucose metabolism and lipid profiles in subjects with PCOS. DESIGN, PATIENTS AND MEASUREMENTS: This randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted on 60 women diagnosed with PCOS. Subjects were randomly assigned into two groups to intake either 100 mg CoQ10 supplements (N=30) or placebo (N=30) per day for 12 weeks. Markers of insulin metabolism and lipid profiles were assessed at first and 12 weeks after the intervention.
Results:
After 12 weeks of intervention, compared to the placebo, subjects who CoQ10 supplements had significantly decreased fasting plasma glucose (-0.24±0.51 vs. +0.01±0.44 mmol/L, P=0.04), serum insulin concentrations (-7.8±14.4 vs. +6.0±15.0 pmol/L, P
