Gayunpaman, kinakailangan pang magsagawa ng karagdagang pag-aaral  upang mapagtibay  ang claim na ito, ang bagong tuklas na pag-aaral na ito ay maaaring maging sanhi ng mga pagbabago sa kung paano haharapin ng mga medical practitioners ang kondisyong ito, na kung saan naaapektuhan ang isa sa 10 mga kababaihan sa buong mundo, ayon sa National Institutes of Health.
A team approach involving care by primary care and subspecialist physicians can be helpful to address the multiple manifestations of the syndrome. Goals for treatment (e.g., treating infertility; regulating menses for endometrial protection; controlling hyperandrogenic features, including hirsutism and acne) must account for the patient's preferences because therapy selection may otherwise conflict with outcomes that the patient considers important. Metabolic complications should be addressed in every patient via a blood pressure evaluation, a lipid panel, and a two-hour oral glucose tolerance test. Patients who are overweight should be evaluated for signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. All patients should be screened for depression (Figure 119).
You may feel that it is difficult to lose excess weight and keep it off, but it is important to continue the effort. Your efforts help reduce the risk for developing serious health complications that can impact women with PCOS much sooner than women without PCOS. The biggest health concerns are diabetes, heart disease, and stroke because PCOS is linked to having high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Second-line therapy, when clomiphene citrate fails to lead to pregnancy, is either exogenous gonadotropins or laparoscopic ovarian surgery. [2, 3] If gonadotropins are used, a low-dose regimen is recommended, [3] and patients must be monitored with ultrasonography and laboratory studies. [2] Note that gonadotropin therapy is expensive and is associated with an increased risk of multiple pregnancy and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. [2]

Ovarian drilling has some advantages compared with gonadotropin treatment because it is associated with a lower multiple gestation rate (OR 0.13; 95% CI: 0.03 to 0.52; p=0.004; I(2)=0%; 5 trials; n=166) 29 and does not require US monitoring of follicular development 9. However, the long-term impact of ovarian drilling on the ovarian reserve/ovarian function remains unknown 29.
El SOP es la causa más común de infertilidad en la mujer y afecta del 6 al 12 % (hasta 5 millones) de mujeres en edad reproductiva en los Estados Unidos. Pero es mucho más que eso. Las mujeres con este síndrome con frecuencia tienen resistencia a la insulina (información disponible solo en inglés), es decir que no responden eficazmente a la insulina, por lo que sus cuerpos continúan produciendo más. Se piensa que el exceso de insulina hace aumentar los niveles de andrógenos (hormonas masculinas que también tienen las mujeres) producidos por los ovarios (órganos que producen los óvulos), lo cual puede hacer que no se liberen los óvulos (ovulación) y puede causar menstruaciones irregulares, acné, debilitamiento del cabello y crecimiento excesivo de vello en la cara y el cuerpo.

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.
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).
Quantitative insulin sensitivity check index (QUICKI) was developed to improve the sensitivity of fasting measurements. QUICKI is calculated as: 1/[log(insulin fasting) + log(glucose fasting)] and has been well correlated to clamp measurements in obese and non-obese patients[15]. QUICKI also demonstrates correlation with HOMA-IR[53]. QUICKI research calculations in young PCOS women are often identical to age matched women with DM[54].
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.

Thanks for the clarification, I dont know anything about her or any of the side characters besides a few posts i've skimmed here and those tumblr posts from earlier 2016. I wouldn't be mean to any of them. I think they could really use some kindness. I just find a lack of hygiene to be repulsive due to my own personal germaphobia, i can't even expand and pics in the thread because my skin crawls and shudders and it makes me really nauseous just to see a stained shirt, its my problem. I'm sure she's just a sweet woman whose addiction has her spiraling downward with no way to get into a good rehab place. If they could get enough money for a facility program and keep a sober companion a few years, I think they could have a chance to get better and take care of Roger before he dies.

During a transvaginal ultrasound, your doctor or a medical technician inserts a wandlike device (transducer) into your vagina while you lie on your back on an exam table. The transducer emits sound waves that generate images of your pelvic organs, including your ovaries. On an ultrasound image (inset), a polycystic ovary shows many follicles. Each dark circle on the ultrasound image represents a fluid-filled follicle in the ovary. Your doctor may suspect PCOS if you have 20 or more follicles in each ovary.
In patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) who are obese, endocrine-metabolic parameters markedly improve after 4-12 weeks of dietary restriction. Their sex hormone–binding globulin (SHBG) levels rise, and free testosterone levels fall by 2-fold. [66] Serum insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels also decrease. In patients with PCOS who are obese, weight loss is associated with a reduction of hirsutism and a return of ovulatory cycles in 30% of women, thereby improving pregnancy rates, as well as improving glucose tolerance and lipid levels. [12, 3]
Skin Conditions: Very frustrating for many women with this disorder, skin conditions are difficult to hide and can on occasion be painful. From mild to severe acne to the development of skin tags, skin conditions caused by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can be both a nuisance and an embarrassment. Additionally, women with PCOS can experience acanthosis nigricans, which is the development of dark, thick, almost velvet-like skin in several places on the body.2
Many health experts believe that numerous variables, including genetics, might be a factor in the development of PCOS. For example, you might find your sister, mother, aunt or grandmother has PCOS. It is clear that hormone imbalance is a primary influencing factor in PCOS as well as a condition called insulin resistance. Insulin is a potent hormone which is released by the pancreas as a result of food intake, in particular carbs. Insulin conveys sugar out from the blood and moves it into other cells such as muscle, liver and even fat cells. The sugar is then changed into energy or in some cases stored as fat. Sometimes this process is defective which is called insulin resistance.
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.
The prevalence of infertility in women with PCOS varies between 70 and 80%. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the evaluation of infertility in women with PCOS or other causes of subfertility should start after six months of attempting pregnancy without success if the couple has regular sexual intercourse (2 to 3 times/week) without using contraceptive methods 7. To optimize the efficacy of the treatment of infertile women with PCOS, evaluations of tubal patency (hysterosalpingography or laparoscopy with chromotubation) and semen analysis (spermogram) are mandatory before deciding on treatment. However, tubal patency evaluation may not be necessary prior to initiating clomiphene citrate (CC) treatment. Notably, if a patient is resistant to this drug and/or requires the use of gonadotropins and/or presents with other causes of infertility, a tubal patency evaluation becomes mandatory prior to initiating the therapeutic treatment of infertility 8.
Three months. Follow up at 2 years Secondary amenorrhoea, n = 38; luteal insufficiency, n = 31; idiopathic infertility, n = 27. 30 drops per day over 3 months. Hormonal data from 32 cases. In the third treatment month 66 complete data sets were available. In a subgroup of women with luteal insufficiency (n = 21) there were significant improvements in clinical parameters in the treatment group compared to placebo (p = 0.023). Preparation ‘Mastodynon’ contains V agnus-castus plus other herbal extracts which may have confounded outcome measures.
 PCOS seems to be inherited. Female relatives or children of patients with PCOS are at increased risk for having PCOS. Environmental risk factors, including low birth weight, rapid weight gain in infancy, early pubic hair and puberty development, childhood obesity, excess adult weight, and unhealthy lifestyle, are also important and may interact with genes to lead to PCOS (called epigenetics). 
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.
Because of the menstrual and hormonal irregularities, infertility is common in women with PCOS. Because of the lack of ovulation, progesterone secretion in women with PCOS is diminished, leading to long-term unopposed estrogen stimulation of the uterine lining. This situation can lead to abnormal periods, breakthrough bleeding, or prolonged uterine bleeding. Unopposed estrogen stimulation of the uterus is also a risk factor for the development of endometrial hyperplasia and cancer of the endometrium (uterine lining). However, medications can be given to induce regular periods and reduce the estrogenic stimulation of the endometrium (see below).
You can lose weight by exercising regularly and having a healthy, balanced diet. Your diet should include plenty of fruit and vegetables, (at least five portions a day), whole foods (such as wholemeal bread, wholegrain cereals and brown rice), lean meats, fish and chicken. Your GP may be able to refer you to a dietitian if you need specific dietary advice.
Anecdotally, oral contraceptives are among the most common agents used to treat menstrual irregularities in women with PCOS. However, there are few studies examining their effect on menstrual cycles in women with PCOS. Cyproterone acetate plus ethinyl estradiol has been extensively studied, but it is not available in the United States. Studies suggest that the following agents may improve menstrual irregularities (e.g., oligomenorrhea): spironolactone (in an open-label study),22 acarbose,24 rosigli-tazone,32 and metformin.10,11,32,47,51 Metformin is probably the best choice because it may improve insulin resistance in addition to improving menstrual irregularities.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition associated with hormone imbalances that affects women. Though the underlying cause of PCOS is not known or well understood, it is believed that an imbalance of sex hormones and resistance to the effects of the hormone insulin are the main problems. These problems result in a characteristic group of signs, symptoms and complications such as excess facial and body hair, irregular menstrual periods, infertility, and insulin resistance.
Ang oral contraceptive pills (magkasamang estrogen at progestin) ay binibigay para maging regular ang regla ng babaeng may PCOS. Kapag nagreregla buwan buwan ang babaeng may PCOS ay hindi kumakapal ang lining ng matres at nakakatulong maiwasan ang kanser sa lining ng matres (endometrial cancer). Ang pag-inom ng contraceptive pills ay makakatulong din sa taghiyawat at sobrang buhok (bigote o sa dibdib at ibang parte ng katawan). Hindi rin mabubuntis habang umiinom ng pills.

Something that really strikes me about Luna is that she's completely vacuous. There's nothing going on behind the eyes that isn't related to aesthetic. She barely even seems like a real human being. This was true even before she got hooked on drugs and probably a big factor in why she chose to use. It doesn't seem like she was a bad person prior to heroin (though iirc in http://witchycrankypoo.tumblr.com/ someone mentioned that she was super manipulative and self-focused even before the drugs), but she's certainly always been very, very, very, very shallow.
Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body’s cells do not respond to the effects of insulin. When the body does not respond to insulin, the level of glucose in the blood increases. This may cause more insulin to be produced as the body tries to move glucose into cells. Insulin resistance can lead to diabetes mellitus. It also is associated with acanthosis nigricans.
PCOS is the most common cause of anovulatory (pronounced an-OV-yuh-luh-tawr-ee) infertility, meaning that the infertility results from the absence of ovulation, the process that releases a mature egg from the ovary every month. Many women don't find out that they have PCOS until they have trouble getting pregnant...Read more about PCOS NIH - National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

Nigga u wot?? Seriously, read through at least one of her threads before virtue signaling. She is NOT a "sweet woman." She talks shit about everyone once they stop giving her money or ass pats. She claims her dad is the absolute worst and yet brags when he buys her a new grandma bra or when they smoke weed together. She HAS been to rehab, but dropped it once she realized it wasn't a cool place to hang out with druggies.
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.
Metformina. La metformina se utiliza normalmente para tratar la diabetes tipo 2 y puede mejorar los síntomas del SOP en algunas mujeres. No está aprobada por la FDA para tratar los síntomas del SOP. La metformina optimiza la capacidad de la insulina para disminuir el azúcar en sangre y además puede reducir los niveles de insulina y andrógeno. Luego de varios meses de uso, la metformina puede ayudar a reactivar la ovulación, pero normalmente solo tiene un efecto mínimo en el acné y en el vello excesivo en el rostro o cuerpo. Estudios recientes demuestran que la metformina puede tener otros efectos positivos, como la disminución de la masa corporal y la optimización de los niveles de colesterol.

Aparte de preguntarte sobre tus antecedentes médicos, el médico te hará un examen físico, que incluirá pesarte y evaluar algunos signos específicos, como el acné, el crecimiento del vello y el oscurecimiento de la piel. Es posible que te haga un examen ginecológico para descartar otras posibles causas de tus síntomas, pero esto no siempre es necesario para hacer el diagnóstico.

In vitro fertilization represents the third-line treatment for infertility in women with PCOS 9. However, if the initial assessment demonstrates a bilateral tubal occlusion and/or concentration of recovered motile sperm less than or equal to 5 million, this treatment becomes the first option along with lifestyle changes. The risk of OHSS is the main complication of the highly complexity treatment in women with PCOS. Thus, to minimize this side effect, ovarian stimulation should be initiated with low doses of gonadotropins (100 to 150 IU of FSHr) and the pituitary should be suppressed with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist because this method is associated with a reduced risk of OHSS compared with an agonist (29 randomized control trials (RCTs); OR 0.43; 95% CI: 0.33 to 0.57) 32. If the patient presents with clinical and ultrasound signs of OHSS, final oocyte maturation should be performed with a GnRH agonist and embryos should be frozen and transferred in a subsequent cycle 33,34. Infertile women with PCOS may present with better general oocyte and embryo quality rates; however, the clinical pregnancy and live birth rates are similar to those observed in normo-ovulatory women without PCOS 35.

What matters most: Your goal when losing weight is to aim specifically to reduce the fat around your abdomen (belly fat). This requires boosting your metabolism like women who had PCOS did in an Italian weight loss study.7 Those who rode exercise bikes for 30 minutes, three times a week, lost more abdominal fat than those who shed pounds by just eating less.7 You won’t be successful if you only change your diet. More women in the exercise group than the diet group began ovulating even though both groups lost similar amounts of weight.7
Following the electronic and manual searches of bibliographies, forty six clinical studies were identified for inclusion/exclusion assessment (Figure 1). A pre-requisite for the inclusion of clinical studies was identified laboratory evidence explaining the mechanism of effect in reproductive endocrinology. Fifteen met the inclusion criteria [54–68]. Eight were randomised controlled trials (RCTs) including 762 women [61–68] (Table 2). Thirty one studies were excluded for the following reasons; investigation of isolated herbal chemicals (n = 3); inclusion of male subjects (n = 4); no pre-clinical evidence (n = 11) and conditions different to those specified (n = 13).

Side effects: Since licorice is one of the most widely used herbs there is a great deal of research into the possible side effects as well. It is definitely not recommended for long-term use because extended exposure may cause fluid retention, high blood pressure and potassium depletion. Some minor side effects may include upset stomach, headache, missed periods and fatigue. You should not take licorice if you are pregnant, breast feeding or have high blood pressure.
New evidence suggests that using medications that lower insulin levels in the blood may be effective in restoring menstruation and reducing some of the health risks associated with PCOS. Lowering insulin levels also helps to reduce the production of testosterone, thus diminishing many of the symptoms associated with excess testosterone: hair growth on the body, alopecia (scalp hair loss), acne and possibly cardiovascular risk.

This is a really big deal, because GnRH antagonist drugs are pretty common and used to treat some cancer. They are also part of the treatment for women with PCOS who are stimulating their ovaries for IVF and egg-freezing. This study suggests that we might be able to stop PCOS before it develops by treating pregnant women with this drug, and we can potentially use it to treat women who currently have PCOS. It is important to note that there are two commonly recognized types of PCOS, a lean phenotype and an obese phenotype. The authors explain that their mouse model most closely resemble the lean PCOS phenotype, so this treatment might not be able to help all women with PCOS. However, it is still an important step forward.
Oh FUCK no. Someone please let the woman know; it's a matter of saving an animal from a lifetime of misery and despair. Siamese cats are much harder to properly keep than the average housecat and needs a household where they'll be stimulated and properly trained so they don't get aggressive. There's no way two lazy dirty junkies could take care of one.
I've lived in pretty grimy situations in other times in my life where I couldn't control the common space or kitchen at all but I at least didn't let my bedroom or the bathroom get so gross that it looks like it could be on an episode of a haunted hoarder homes tv show. I'd like to find an old pic where they had a clean home/even just their bed and compare it to now but I don't think it's EVER been clean and I've been following her for more than 5 years. Sage- Blog.
Quitar el vello. Puedes probar con cremas depilatorias para el vello facial, remoción de vello con láser o electrólisis para eliminar el vello excesivo. Puedes conseguir cremas y productos depilatorios en farmacias. Los procedimientos de depilación como la eliminación de vellos con láser o electrólisis son llevados a cabo por médicos y probablemente los seguros de salud no cubran estos gastos.

PCOS son las siglas en inglés del síndrome de ovario poliquístico, una afección común en mujeres adolescentes y adultas. PCOS ocurre cuando hay un desequilibrio hormonal. Además de estrógeno (la principal hormona femenina), las mujeres también producen una pequeña cantidad de testosterona (la principal hormona masculina). Las muchachas y mujeres con PCOS producen un poco de testosterona adicional.
Metformin, an antidiabetic drug, improves insulin resistance and decreases hyperinsulinemia in patients with PCOS. [68] This drug also has a small but beneficial effect on metabolic syndrome, as well as potentially causing a modest reduction in androgen levels (11%). [4] Note that women with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 37 kg/m2 may not have a good response to metformin. [4] An Italian study of 33 patients with PCOS demonstrated that metformin affected thyroid hormone by lowering thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in hypothyroid patients with PCOS, regardless of whether these individuals received levothyroxine or were untreated. [69]
First-line medical therapy usually consists of an oral contraceptive to induce regular menses. The contraceptive not only inhibits ovarian androgen production but also increases sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) production. ACOG recommends use of combination low-dose hormonal contraceptive agents for long-term management of menstrual dysfunction. [3] If symptoms such as hirsutism are not sufficiently alleviated, an androgen-blocking agent may be added. Pregnancy should be excluded before therapy with oral contraceptives or androgen-blocking agents is started.

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.
For those women that after weight loss still are anovulatory or for anovulatory lean women, then the ovulation-inducing medications clomiphene citrate[74] and FSH are the principal treatments used to promote ovulation.[medical citation needed] Previously, the anti-diabetes medication metformin was recommended treatment for anovulation, but it appears less effective than clomiphene.[medical citation needed][90]
