Dr. Rinku Mehta performs polycystic ovary syndrome research
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects millions of women and is one of the leading causes of female infertility. However, this common condition is still shrouded in its fair share of mystery. Our Dallas fertility doctor, Rinku Mehta MD, has been involved in work to uncover the secrets of this complex condition with her polycystic ovary syndrome research.
A look at Dr. Mehta’s polycystic ovary syndrome research
PCOS is one area of clinical interest for our Dallas fertility doctor, and she started conducting polycystic ovary syndrome research over a decade ago. “PCOS is such a common condition, but at the same time, the medical community doesn’t know everything about it. By performing research, we can work to uncover these mysteries, and hopefully improve fertility outcomes for the women who live with this syndrome,” Dr. Mehta explains.
Dr. Mehta shows her commitment to this goal through her extensive PCOS research. Here is a look at some of the topics she has explored.
- Our Dallas fertility doctor and her team explored the effect of insulin infusion in women with PCOS on luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion.
- She and her team also looked at how granulosa cells responded to recombinant follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
As part of her polycystic ovary syndrome research, Dr. Mehta also conducted research on hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadotropic dysfunction in PCOS.
The importance of research
Our Dallas fertility doctor strongly believes in the life-changing power of research. “Without research, the field of reproductive medicine cannot move forward and find new, innovative treatments that will help patients overcome their fertility struggles and build families.”
