Background & Aims: Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common endocrine disorder and the leading cause of infertility in the women of childbearing age. Considering the importance of this disease on women's health and their quality of life, this study was conducted with the aim of investigation of the relationship between dietary patterns and nutritional status on increasing the risk of PCOS in the women aged 20-40 years referred to Sarem Hospital, Tehran, Iran. 
Materials & Methods: This case-control study was performed on 57 patients with PCOS and 58 healthy individuals. This study used demographic Information of the pationts, Physical Activity (IPAQ), and food frequency (FFQ) questionnaires to collect data. Anthropometric indices were also measured. In order to calculate the food groups received in this research, the food items were divided into 16 groups. Then, the obtained items were analyzed based on the normality or absence of the obtained information in two safe and unsafe food groups using appropriate statistical tests for each of the above states. The results were analyzed using SPSS version 24 statistical software.
Results: The average age of people with PCOS was 29.86±5.01 and healthy people was 32.12±4.92 years. The results showed that weight, waist circumference, hip circumference, waist-to-hip ratio, waist circumference, waist height, and fat percentage were significantly different in the patients with PCOS from healthy individuals (P<0.05). Also, energy consumption, protein, EPA, DHA, sodium, potassium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper, selenium, total fiber, crude fiber, and glucose were significantly different in the patients with PCOS from healthy individuals (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Anthropometric indices were higher in the patients with PCOS compared to healthy individuals. Also, intake of some macronutrients and micronutrients was higher in patients with PCOS compared to healthy people. However, there was no statistically significant difference in the amount of intake of any of the 16 daily food items between the two groups with PCOS.
