I think half the time she actually does have the money to spend on bullshit (like magazines, dunkin donuts) but she has to keep up the ~uwu im a poor gurl~ shit so she says that strangers bought it because she was "counting change". She got that one magazine right after visiting her dad.. And im pretty sure she gets/takes money from him. Its not enough to buy dope, so she just goes and spends it on dumb shit.
Lifestyle changes: Maintaining a healthy weight can help minimize PCOS symptoms and control diabetes. In addition, eating a diet with a lot of high-fiber carbohydrates helps slow the digestive process and control blood sugar levels. Exercise helps lower blood sugar levels and can also help relieve symptoms. Women who smoke have higher androgen levels, so quitting smoking is another positive lifestyle change to make.

Antiandrogens, such as spironolactone, are effective for hirsutism. [79] Spironolactone (50-100 mg twice daily) is an effective primary therapy for hirsutism. Because of the potential teratogenic effects of spironolactone, patients require an effective form of contraception (eg, an oral contraceptive). Adverse effects of spironolactone include gastrointestinal discomfort and irregular menstrual bleeding, which can be managed by adding an oral contraceptive.
i'm guessing Luna knows two different Pats. one Pat is Patricia Allen, the one who is rlyblonde' mom who has also been buying her groceries and shit. and the other Pat is the woman with cancer. but i don't know. i just don't think rlyblonde's mom is the same pat as the cancer pat, i haven't seen anything that would insinuate Patricia Allen once had cancer or worked with Luna
Chromium ay naroroon sa katawan ng tao sa minimal na halaga, at ito Pinahuhusay ang kakayahan upang magbabad insulin. Ang isang babae na apektado ng PCOS ay maaaring maging lumalaban sa insulin, at maaari niyang harapin ang sitwasyong ito sa pamamagitan ng ubos na pagkain na naglalaman ng kromo. Ilang mga halimbawa ay ang broccoli, red wine, at berde beans. Maaari ka ring kumuha chromium supplement.
Some other blood tests are suggestive but not diagnostic. The ratio of LH (Luteinizing hormone) to FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone), when measured in international units, is elevated in women with PCOS. Common cut-offs to designate abnormally high LH/FSH ratios are 2:1[66] or 3:1[62] as tested on Day 3 of the menstrual cycle. The pattern is not very sensitive; a ratio of 2:1 or higher was present in less than 50% of women with PCOS in one study.[66] There are often low levels of sex hormone-binding globulin,[62] in particular among obese or overweight women.[citation needed]
Other insulin sensitizing agents have been advocated and studied for the treatment of IR in PCOS, principally thiazolinediones. Thiazolinediones stimulate gene transcription that alters lipid and glucose metabolism, decreases lipolysis and decreases fat deposition[90]. Thiazolinediones decrease fatty acid release, suppress gluconeogenesis and reduce tumor necrosis factor α disruption of insulin activity[64]. Pioglitazone and rosiglitazone have decreased IR (measured by clamp studies) in PCOS women[90-93]. Glitazones have also decreased IR by OGTT AUC-Insulin in PCOS women[91,93,94]. In patients with DM, thiazolinediones reduce central adiposity[95], a trait commonly shared with PCOS women. Pioglitazone by way of IR and adiponectin levels also has improved menstrual regularity in PCOS women[96,97]. Adverse outcomes have been seen in pregnant animals with limited to no human data. Therefore, as a class, thiazolinediones are not considered first line therapy for PCOS women seeking pregnancy. Rosiglitazone has even been found to decrease pro-inflammatory markers in human granulosa cells cultured following in vitro fertilization oocyte retrieval, thus showing additional target tissue for therapy[98]. However, these effects have not been adequately studied and have no current practical application.
Obesity that occurs with PCOS needs to be treated because it can cause numerous additional medical problems. The management of obesity in PCOS is similar to the management of obesity in general. Weight loss can help reduce or prevent many of the complications associated with PCOS, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Consultation with a dietician on a frequent basis is helpful until just the right individualized program is established for each woman.

Aunque el síndrome de ovario poliquístico (que antes se llamaba "síndrome de Stein-Leventhal") se identificó por primera vez en la década de los años treinta del siglo XX, los médicos todavía no conocen sus causas con certeza. Las investigaciones sugieren que puede estar relacionado con un aumento de la fabricación de insulina en el cuerpo. Las mujeres con síndrome de ovario poliquístico es posible que produzcan demasiada insulina, lo que estimula a sus ovarios a liberar un exceso de hormonas masculinas. El síndrome de ovario poliquístico parece darse por familias, de modo que si lo padece alguna pariente tuya, tú podrías ser proclive a desarrollarlo.

According to Dr. Geoffrey Redmond, an endocrinologist specializing in female hormones, “Just because the ovaries are not functioning as much doesn’t mean the other abnormalities won’t still be present.” He goes on to point out that studies show male hormone levels climb fairly sharply with age.2 This could mean a worsening of symptoms such as excess hair growth as those hormones become more active. It could also mean insulin-related issues such as diabetes and cardiovascular health could become more problematic.
she's mentioned before that "healthy foods" are "rich people foods" which is just total bullshit to anyone who's gone grocery shopping. she used to post cvs hauls of frozen pizzas and candy she'd get for herself and lurch and it would be one nights worth of food. cvs is overpriced as fuck but even at a normal store, buying exclusively prepackaged junk food is expensive as fuuuccck. buy some rice and beans.
Herbal remedies can be a very effective treatment option for PCOS because they are usually quite gentle on the body and have fewer side effects than medication.3 You can usually use PCOS herbs longer with fewer problems which is important because PCOS does not go away over time. The reasons you might want to consider using herbs for your polycystic ovarian syndrome is they can be very successful in treating the contributing factors of PCOS, providing relief for symptoms and healing the body by boosting your immune system.
Dahil lamang ikaw ay ilagay sa ilang timbang dahil sa ang simula ng PCOS, ay hindi nangangahulugan na dapat mong itapon ang lahat ng mga mapagkukunan ng mataba pagkain mula sa iyong pagkain! Ang katotohanan ay na walang ang paggamit ng malusog na taba sa iyong katawan ay hindi maaaring makabuo ng hormones sa ninanais na halaga. Maaari mong isama butter o olive oil sa iyong pagkain.
The definitive cause of PCOS is unknown, but researchers have found a strong link to insulin resistance, a genetic condition often associated with diabetes, in which the muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin and thus cannot easily absorb glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream. As a result, the body produces higher and higher levels of insulin to help glucose enter the cells.
Increasing evidence in animal models and in humans shows that sympathetic nerve activity controls ovarian androgen biosynthesis and follicular development. Thus, sympathetic nerve activity participates in the follicular development and the hyperandrogenism characteristics of polycystic ovary syndrome, which is the most prevalent ovarian pathology in women during their reproductive years. In this study, we mimic sympathetic nerve activity in the rat via "in vivo" stimulation with isoproterenol (ISO), a β-adrenergic receptor agonist, and test for the development of the polycystic ovary condition. We also determine whether this effect can be reversed by the administration of propranolol (PROP), a β-adrenergic receptor antagonist. Rats were treated for 10 days with 125 μg/kg ISO or with ISO plus 5 mg/kg PROP. The ovaries were examined 1 day or 30 days following drug treatment. While ISO was present, the ovaries had an increased capacity to secrete androgens; ISO + PROP reversed this effect on androgen secretory activity. 30 days after treatment, androstenedione secretion reverted to normal levels, but an increase in the intra-ovarian nerve growth factor (NGF) concentration and luteinizing hormone (LH) plasma levels was detected. ISO treatment resulted in follicular development characterized by an increased number of pre-cystic and cystic ovarian follicles; this was reversed in the ISO + PROP group. The lack of change in the plasma levels of progesterone, androstenedione, testosterone, or estradiol and the increased LH plasma levels strongly suggests a local intra-ovarian effect of ISO indicating that β-adrenergic stimulation is a definitive component in the rat polycystic ovary condition.
Metformin has been the mainstay of treatment for IR and IGT in PCOS women over the past decade. Metformin is a biguanide that acts principally on the liver to inhibit hepatic gluconeogenesis. It also inhibits acetyl-CoA carboxylase activity and suppresses fatty acid production. Metformin acts on skeletal muscle to inhibit lipid production and acts peripherally on adipose tissue to stimulate glucose transport and uptake. Metformin reduces insulin levels and promotes improved insulin receptor activity[64]. Metformin may also have direct and indirect effects on the ovary with respect to insulin action and steroidogenic enzymatic activity. In the endothelium, metformin seems to improve nitric oxide vasodilatory effects. Many other mechanisms of action have been studied in both animal and human models but consistent effects are not always demonstrated with local tissue concentrations that result from therapeutic doses[65].
I'm on week 6 of the 5-Element System and I've lost 9 lbs! My brain fog, anxiety, low irritable moods, forgetfulness has cleared. My head feels clear! I haven't plucked a hair on my chin for 2 weeks, my pimples have cleared and my sleeping has improved. With the right food, exercise and the supplements, I really do feel like on my way to being the best version of me!
In addition to assessing signs and symptoms of PCOS, medical providers take a medical history, perform a physical exam, and check blood hormone levels (including testosterone). They may also perform an ovarian ultrasound. Other tests looking for complication of PCOS may also be done, such as glucose tolerance test or a mental health screening survey. 
Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a marker associated with adverse cardiovascular events, and women with newly diagnosed PCOS appear to have significantly elevated MPV levels. [47] Kabil Kucur et al reported that use of ethinyl estradiol/cyproterone acetate or metformin for the treatment of women with PCOS seemed to have similar beneficial effects in reducing MPV. [47]
Niveles elevados de insulina. La insulina es una hormona que contribuye en el procesamiento de los alimentos hasta convertirlos en energía. La resistencia a la insulina se da cuando las células corporales no responden normalmente a la insulina. Como consecuencia, los niveles de insulina en sangre están más elevados de lo normal. Muchas mujeres con SOP tienen resistencia a la insulina, en especial aquellas con sobrepeso y obesidad, que tienen hábitos alimenticios poco saludables, no realizan suficiente actividad física o tienen antecedentes familiares de diabetes (por lo general, diabetes tipo 2). Con el paso del tiempo, la resistencia a la insulina puede desencadenar diabetes tipo 2.
Androgens. All females make androgens (also referred to as “male hormones”), but there are often higher levels of androgens in women with PCOS. The excess androgens are produced mostly by the ovaries, but the adrenal glands can also be involved. Excess androgens are responsible for many PCOS symptoms including acne, unwanted hair, thinning hair, and irregular periods.

Women with PCOS have been shown to have higher levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in their blood. AGEs are compounds formed when glucose binds with proteins, and are believed to contribute to certain degenerative diseases and aging. One small study found that cutting down on dietary AGEs significantly reduced insulin levels in women with PCOS. Foods high in AGEs include animal-derived foods and processed foods. Applying high heat (grilling, searing, roasting) increases levels.
Cinnamon cassia	One animal study compared the effectiveness of Cinnamomum cassia with metformin against controls in rats with PCOS. Hormone concentration was measured at 15 and 30 days [48]	One pilot RCT demonstrated positive effects for metabolic parameter’s (HOMO and QUICKI) for Cinnamomum cassia in overweight women with PCOS [66]	1. Equivalence for metformin for reduced testosterone in PCOS [48]

Alcohol will only rot your liver when taken to excess. Most people can drink without becoming addicted, while it's highly unusual for people to try heroin 1 or 2 times and not get addicted. The average person isn't going to lie, scam, steal, destroy their family and relationships, and prostitute themselves for alcohol, but heroin often turns people into thieving criminals. Not to say that alcohol isn't terrible as well, but the effect it has on an individual seems lesser than that of heroin.

2. Two studies investigated the ovulation rates, number of corpus luteum and follicle characteristics in rats with polycystic ovaries following exposure to various doses of Tribulus terrestris[46, 47]. 2. Equivalence of Tribulus terrestris and three ovulation induction pharmaceuticals evaluated ovulation in women with oligo/anovular infertility (n = 148) [60].G 2. No oestrogenic effects in female reproductive tissues [51].
More powerful and expensive imaging methods such as computed tomography (CT scan) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can also detect cysts, but they are generally reserved for situations in which other conditions that may cause related symptoms, such as ovarian or adrenal gland tumors are suspected. CT scans require X-rays and sometimes injected dyes, which can be associated with some degree of complications in certain patients.

This led the researchers to experiment with blocking the body from responding to this excess GnRH. They treated a separate group of pregnant mice with AMH but also another drug that blocks the body from responding to the higher levels of GnRH (called a “GnRH antagonist”). They followed the daughter pups born to these mothers, and turns out they didn’t develop PCOS-like symptoms! They also wanted to see if they could give GnRH antagonist to daughter pups who had already developed PCOS-like symptoms (because their mothers only received high levels of AMH while pregnant). After treatment with the GnRH antagonist, the daughter pups’ hormone levels started to normalize and they ovulated more than those who didn’t get the antagonist treatment.
Dr. Victor Luna completed his medical education at Escuela Autonoma de Ciencias Medicas de Centroamerica in San Jose, Costa Rica. He then participated in an internship at LSU Health Science Center where he later completed his residency in Internal Medicine where he served as the chief resident for his final year. Dr. Luna continued his education by completing a fellowship at University of South Florida.
Couples with infrequent sexual intercourse may experience some benefit from the use of kits for ovulation monitoring (urinary luteinizing hormone excretion); however, this technique can underestimate the fertile window. The evaluation of cervical mucus throughout the menstrual cycle demonstrated similar efficacy to urinary kits for monitoring the ovulation and high rates of false positives in cycles are noted using the hCG 24. Thus, this method has not been routinely used in clinical practice, mainly when US is available.
I feel like you're confused, which is fair Luna can be all over the place and cryptic. Her father in law type guy had hella health issues last year which was her main excuse for most of her e-begging when it was at its height. From my understanding he has some drinking issues and he and Lurch get in a lot of fights, but he's not a crackhead and it's not nice (I know this isn't a place where people come to be nice) to call sick old men gross.
Metformin(Glucophage) is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. This drug affects the action of insulin and is useful in reducing a number of the symptoms and complications of PCOS. Metformin has been shown to be useful in the management of irregular periods, ovulation induction, weight loss, as well as the prevention of type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes mellitus in women with PCOS.

Combination birth control pills — those with estrogen and Prometrium (progesterone) — are frequently prescribed to women with PCOS not looking to get pregnant. If the main concern is irregular periods and the resulting potential health risks, this is a great option. “Birth control pills are very good for protecting the lining of the uterus in women who are chronically anovulatory,” says Dunaif.
Gynecologic ultrasonography, specifically looking for small ovarian follicles. These are believed to be the result of disturbed ovarian function with failed ovulation, reflected by the infrequent or absent menstruation that is typical of the condition. In a normal menstrual cycle, one egg is released from a dominant follicle – in essence, a cyst that bursts to release the egg. After ovulation, the follicle remnant is transformed into a progesterone-producing corpus luteum, which shrinks and disappears after approximately 12–14 days. In PCOS, there is a so-called "follicular arrest"; i.e., several follicles develop to a size of 5–7 mm, but not further. No single follicle reaches the preovulatory size (16 mm or more). According to the Rotterdam criteria, which are widely used for diagnosis,[10] 12 or more small follicles should be seen in an ovary on ultrasound examination.[53] More recent research suggests that there should be at least 25 follicles in an ovary to designate it as having polycystic ovarian morphology (PCOM) in women aged 18–35 years.[59] The follicles may be oriented in the periphery, giving the appearance of a 'string of pearls'.[60] If a high resolution transvaginal ultrasonography machine is not available, an ovarian volume of at least 10 ml is regarded as an acceptable definition of having polycystic ovarian morphology instead of follicle count.[59]
