PCOS is the most common hormone disorder in women and one of the leading causes of infertility, affecting roughly 5-10% of women of childbearing age. The condition can affect girls as young as 11. Because the signs and symptoms often seem unrelated and the diagnostic criteria are not yet clear, most women are not diagnosed until they are in their 20's or 30's. It appears to run in families. Women with sisters who have PCOS are twice as likely to have the condition.
meh. I think she takes selfies (including the body posi ones) because it helps her cultivate her image rather than because she thinks she's gorgeous. She's not like many of the other cows in that she doesn't try to hide her cellulite or mismatching eye sockets or her flab. Her imperfections feed into her junkie chic look, which is why calling them out every time she posts a picture ad nauseum doesn't make sense. She knows she has these features and doesn't seem to care, she mentions them herself, and she might even like how they fit into her style. She's totally comfortable with them and places a much higher importance on aesthetic than having a beautiful body.
Insulin-sensitizing drugs. A particular medication, called metformin, is usually prescribed.20 Another medication, pioglitazone (Actos) may also be suggested for women with PCOS. These two medications are FDA-approved for diabetes treatment, but plenty of research shows they can be equally effective for women with PCOS, too. These insulin-sensitizing medications can help your body respond more readily to insulin, and better control your glucose levels. Both metformin and pioglitazone can reduce the insulin resistance and high insulin levels that commonly occur with PCOS, and in turn, can reduce high androgen levels.
“I always look at diet and lifestyle — how I can help patients modify their focus and remove obstacles that may be in their way on the path towards wellness,” says April Blake, ND. “As a naturopathic doctor, I prefer to utilize therapies that are gentle and less invasive, and focus on mind-body medicine and lifestyle. If you’re looking for alternatives to traditional treatments, there are several evidence-based therapeutics that have been shown to be effective.”
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a condition that affects a woman's hormonal levels. Women with PCOS produce higher than normal male hormones which cause them to skip their monthly periods and make it harder for them to get pregnant. PCOS also causes hair growth on the face and body, and baldness. So basically, women with PCOS have dense hair growth on those areas of their bodies where they're not supposed to have excess hair. But they start losing hair from their scalps, leading to baldness. PCOS can contribute to long-term health problems like diabetes and heart disorders.
Goats Rue (Galega officinalis) There are more clinical studies required to definitively show the benefits of Goats Rue for women with PCOS; however, it is the natural source of guanidine which is in an anti-diabetic drug class known as biguanides. A common drug for PCOS known as Metformin belongs to the biguanide drug class. This association alone should garner this herb a second look for treating polycystic ovarian syndrome.
One of the biggest challenges in reviewing the evidence for PCOS treatment is that many manifestations of the condition may be components of other disease processes. For example, there may be a study of medications that are useful for hirsutism, but the patient population in the study did not explicitly have PCOS. Thus, recommendations specific for treating symptoms of PCOS may be lacking. When reviewing a study of the treatment of insulin resistance in a general population, it cannot be assumed that the outcomes would mirror those in women with PCOS.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) indicate that lifestyle modifications such as weight loss and increased exercise in conjunction with a change in diet consistently reduce the risk of diabetes. This approach has been found to be comparable to or better than treatment with medication and should therefore be considered first-line treatment in managing women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). [2, 3] These modifications have been effective in restoring ovulatory cycles and achieving pregnancy in obese women with PCOS. Weight loss in obese women with PCOS also improves hyperandrogenic features.
For women who don’t receive timely, appropriate care for PCOS in early adolescence, the development of symptoms such as facial-hair growth can become more challenging to treat. Brandy Cramer, 33, a program officer at The Cameron Foundation, from Midlothian, Virginia says her doctors told her she just wasn’t trying hard enough to lose weight and dismissed her when she requested they run blood tests or suggest alternatives to the birth-control pills that gave her intense migraines. Cramer grew facial hair and has only been able to remove 50 percent of it, even after expensive laser hair-removal treatment.
This therapeutic modality is also considered a second-line treatment for the infertility of women with PCOS. However, because it is an invasive method that requires general anesthesia and has a higher cost and potential complications, this technique should be used in cases of anovulatory women with CC-resistant PCOS who require laparoscopy for another reason (pelvic pain, adnexal mass, etc.). This technique can be performed using monopolar electrocautery or laser techniques, with both exhibiting a similar efficacy and the goal is between 4 and 10 punctures because a larger number may favor the development of premature ovarian failure 25,29. The mechanism of action of ovarian drilling in the treatment of infertility in women with PCOS is suggested to be based on the decreased secretion of androgens and consequent reduction of peripheral aromatization of these compounds into estrone. Furthermore, the follicular microenvironment becomes more estrogenic, which facilitates follicular growth 30. Regarding the efficacy of ovarian drilling, observational studies demonstrated that the ovulation rate was between 54 and 76% in the 6 months after the procedure and 33 and 88% in the 12 months after the procedure. During these periods, the spontaneous pregnancy rate ranged between 28 and 56% and 54 and 70%, respectively 31.
Side effects: This herb can cause several side effects including muscle pain, gastrointestinal issues, weight gain, headache, dizziness and vaginal spotting. Black Cohosh has also been associated with liver disease so be watchful for symptoms like dark urine, loss of appetite, yellowing of the skin or eyes and nausea which can be signs of liver complications.
i understand that it's kind of the name of the game on this website but it just gets repetitive and boring after a while hearing people say the same things over and over again about her looks when 1) she really couldn't change it unless she had a ton of money (but we all know that'd just go to drugs) 2) like >>403879 and >>403866 said, she knows she's unattractive so there's no point in pointing out her bad physical qualities when everyone, including herself, gets it. and 3) most of the things that are being pointed out and mocked are normal and a lot of the people who post on this thread probably have the same things (like stretch marks. even if you aren't fat you can get those lol)
>>411167 Tuna if she got sent this: "someone drew me and my mans. my heart is truly filled with love. Currently eating ice cream the snails sadly got into, just eating around the slime lol. Matthew's leg is healing and just fell asleep cuddling the snails, he cried when I let them go and said he truly loved my big heart. heading to my evil dads lol wish me luck. at least I can try out my new lipstick for the trainride. Eating the non-slime ice cream until I fall into a peaceful sleep. just trying my best <3"
Women with PCOS have a normal uterus and healthy eggs. Many women with PCOS have trouble getting pregnant, but some women have no trouble at all. If you’re concerned about your fertility (ability to get pregnant) in the future, talk to your health care provider about all the new options available, including medications to lower your insulin levels or to help you ovulate each month.
Natuklasan ng mga pag-aaral ng paghahambing ng mga pagkain para sa PCOS na ang mga low-carbohydrate diet ay epektibo para sa parehong pagbaba ng timbang at pagpapababa ng mga antas ng insulin. Ang isang mababang glycemic index (low-GI) diyeta na nakakakuha ng karamihan sa mga carbohydrates mula sa prutas, gulay, at buong butil ay nakakatulong na makontrol ang panregla na mas mahusay kaysa sa regular na diyeta sa pagbaba ng timbang (21).

More research is needed to clarify the complex pathophysiology of PCOS. No single test is currently available for its diagnosis. Additionally, once diagnosis is established, the options for treatment are of limited number and effectiveness because they target only the symptoms of PCOS. Finally, patients with PCOS have higher rates of metabolic complications, such as cardiovascular disease, but their impact on mortality is not clear. Therefore, more prospective epidemiologic studies on the topic are necessary.

No universal definition of insulin resistance exists and therefore no standard clinical technique to measure insulin resistance exists. Insulin resistance can be thought of as a metabolic state where normal glucose homeostasis mechanisms fail to operate properly. Translating theory to clinical practice has been a source of frustration for many practitioners. The American Diabetes Association has characterized IR as a state of impaired metabolic response to insulin. IR is characterized by an inability of normal amounts of insulin to achieve the normal predicted response, often in the clinical setting of central adiposity. To achieve euglycemia, the pancreas over secretes insulin. Investigators define IR based on hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp techniques as a state of impaired glucose disposal in response to insulin. Despite no consensus, clamp techniques have become the reference for understanding IR.
PCOS is a heterogeneous disorder of uncertain cause. There is some evidence that it is a genetic disease. Such evidence includes the familial clustering of cases, greater concordance in monozygotic compared with dizygotic twins and heritability of endocrine and metabolic features of PCOS. There is some evidence that exposure to higher than typical levels of androgens in utero increases the risk of developing PCOS in later life.
