Core Tip In a previous study, we found that insulin resistance (IR), which is independent of the body fat and central distribution in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), is commonly found among the African population. Among various markers of IR, the role of anthropometric indicators is obvious in developing countries. Therefore, a more appropriate method that should be easy to perform is sought. In the present study, we found for the first time that non-dominant wrist circumference is not only a marker of IR, but the best anthropometric marker known to date for the assessment of IR in women with PCOS.
