PCOS and PCO
PCOS is a health condition linked with hormonal imbalances and insulin resistance, which can bring about a whole menu of symptoms. The most common symptoms are:
• Hirsutism (most common)
• Irregular periods
• Weight Gain
PCO is when you have lots of cysts on your ovaries but generally no hormonal problems. Women with PCO generally have no problems hence why they don’t realise they have PCO.
Causes and Solutions to PCOS
There are a number of causes why women have PCOS ;
genetics, poor diet, pollution, stress levels and lack of exercise.
It is the genes controlling both androgens (testosterone) and insulin production that seem to play a vital role in PCO/S. Yet there are a variety of other genetic factors that will affect the type and severity of symptoms experienced. In addition life style and environment play important roles in developing symptoms.
