It is an established fact that the cause of Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) has a significant hereditary component. Various researchers have also revealed that PCOD is associated with obesity and successful weight reduction is the most effective method of restoring normal ovulation and menstruation. In the present study, an attempt is made to assess the general, anthropometric, biochemical and clinical observation along with lifestyle and dietary pattern of the patients. An association of PCOD with certain demographic variables is established through the survey of 50 women suffering from PCOD in Kanpur Urban Area of North India. After the data is acquired from the participants through structured questionnaire, a descriptive approach is implemented for the analysis. The methodology undertaken in the present study also involves dietary assessment of the participated women which was utilized for their classification into different nutritional status (under-nourished, nourished and over-nourished). In the present work, we first present the percentage of participants belonging to different groups and sub-groups based on general, anthropometric, biochemical and clinical examinations. Next, we demonstrate the association of PCOD with different demographic variables based on nutritional status of the participants. A hypothesis that there would be a significant association between PCOD with different demographic variables is established from the results of the association.
