Figure 3: Receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve analysis of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) cut-off for metabolic syndrome in polycystic ovary syndrome women .The point on the ROC curve with the maximum Youden index was calculated to determine the optimal threshold. A cut-off value of 2.85 for TSH was the best threshold to indicate MetS risk according to National Cholesterol Education Program/Adult Treatment Panel III definition, maximizing the Yuoden index (sensitivity=68%, specificity=88%, Youden index=0.56). The area under the curve=0.81.
