COMPARISON BETWEEN F-G SCALE LEVELS IN HEALTHY WOMEN AND PATIENTS WITH POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME

Vesko Stoilov, Ivan Kostov, Petar Petrov, Nigar Jafer

Abstract


In 2001, the FG Scale methodology underwent a new modification, and currently includes a total of 19 locations, such as upper lip, chin, chest, upper back, lower back, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, upper arms, hips, and there were also added: sideburns, neck, thighs, inguinal area, perianal area, forearm, legs, feet, toes and toes. Each zone can be rated on a four-point scale. The points obtained are summed up and according to the final result the patients are divided into four groups. The first group is of women with a score of 1-9. The second group are those with a total of points from 10 to 16. The third group is with 17-40 points and the fourth one is with 41-44 points.
