PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is one of the most common hormonal imbalances, affecting 5-15 % of all women. If left untreated, PCOS can lead to diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and infertility.
PCOS represents a group of symptoms including: high levels of testosterone, menstrual irregularity and or polycystic appearing ovaries on ultrasound. Patients may have cystic acne or unwanted hair on face, chest, or abdomen. Insulin resistance is common, often presenting as an apple body shape with more weight around the waistline. The ovaries are enlarged and contain multiple small cysts. Lack of regular ovulation leads to absent or irregular periods and can cause problems getting pregnant.
You may have been given a diagnosis of PCOS and not feel like you have been offered many solutions. Standard treatments of birth control pills and metformin mask the symptoms of the condition, but do nothing to restore underlying hormonal balance. While genetics can be a predisposing factor for PCOS, there are plenty of lifestyle and nutrient keys to unlock hormonal health.
