Understanding PCOS and Insulin Resistance

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that recently appears to be occurring more frequently in women. It is a complex condition that is difficult to diagnose since there are so many symptoms associated with it. Many of the symptoms are due to high levels of androgens circulating in the body. Androgens are “male” hormones, and the main one is testosterone. The high levels prevent ovulation and affect the menstrual cycle. This weight gain leads to insulin resistance which could subsequently cause diabetes, cholesterol abnormalities and heart disease. This is where your diet can help you. By reaching your ideal body weight, you can prevent insulin resistance and any other resulting conditions. It is important to remember that insulin resistance is a physiological state that can be corrected, and is not a chronic condition.
