PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Sindrome)
It can be tough trying to lose weight when you have PCOS.
Many women with PCOS are insulin resistant which makes it easy for them to gain weight and hard to lose.
Unfortunately, there is no 'quick fix' and weight loss can be slow, but not impossible!
To address the problem, one has to know where it all started.
What is polycystic ovarian syndrome?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a major cause of infertility.
This condition is also known as Sclerocystic Ovarian Disease, Stein-Leventhal Syndrome, Chronic Anovulatory Syndrome and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD).
It is the most common female endocrine (hormonal) disorder and is characterized by multiple abnormal ovarian cysts.
Most ovarian cysts are harmless, fluid-filled sacs containing immature eggs that attach to the ovaries. But multiple cysts, with a typical appearance of "a string of pearls" or "pearl necklace", are a hallmark of PCOS.
An estimated 5-10% of women of childbearing age are affected by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and it is one of the leading causes of infertility.
Post-menopausal women can also suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Most PCOS sufferers are overweight or obese. But women of normal weight and even lean females can also suffer from this insidious condition.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome can be a silent killer. Since the symptoms of PCOS can vary so widely from woman to woman, doctors very often misdiagnose the condition.
This oversight became a matter of critical concern after a study conducted in 2000 found that women suffering from PCOS have a higher risk of coronary heart disease.
Because Poor Insulin Management is the main cause of Insulin Resistance and PCOS, you have to understand how it happens and how to rectify the problem.
