Otros medicamentos pueden ser beneficiosos con los problemas cosméticos. Existen también medicamentos para controlar la presión alta y el colesterol. Se puede tomar progestinas y medicamentos para aumentar la sensibilidad a la insulina a fin de inducir un periodo menstrual y restaurar ciclos normales. Una dieta balanceada con pocos carbohidratos y un peso saludable pueden disminuir los síntomas de PCOS. El ejercicio frecuente ayuda a perder peso y también a que el cuerpo reduzca el nivel de glucosa en la sangre y use la insulina más eficientemente.
was on a high dose of seroquel for schizoaffective (ended up going off and trying other antipsychotics) but basically i acted like a narcoleptic. i'd fall asleep in the middle of class without warning or i'd fall asleep during a ten min car ride. i was just constantly asleep and it wasnt a peaceful sleep either it was like dead sleep and i woke up feeling shitty. also like all antipsychotics make you gain weight but sometimes it's not more than 10 lbs or so so maybe between that and heroin thats why tuna's not gaining much weight?
Cushing's syndrome, sometimes referred to as hypercortisolism, is a hormonal disorder caused by prolonged exposure to high levels of the hormone cortisol. Symptoms may include obesity, thinning arms and legs, a rounded face, and increased fat around the neck. Some causes of Cushing's syndrome is from taking glucocorticoid hormones such as prednisone for inflammatory diseases. Treatment for Cushing's syndrome depends on the cause.

Oh ffs Tuna, Courtney Love was a dirty junkie but she had style that was her own and in some of her brighter moments really knew how to dress herself. She also had talent (although i do think some farmers might disagree) - the heroin aesthetic doesn't really work if you're just a lazy do nothing that spends your days cuddling with filthy hello kitty dolls and taking pictures of your raggedy trash outfits. Go learn how to play the guitar and stop whining.
PCOS is the most common endocrinopathy among reproductive-aged women in the United States, affecting approximately 7% of female patients.1 Although its exact etiology is unclear, PCOS is currently thought to emerge from a complex interaction of genetic and environmental traits. Evidence from one twin-family study indicates that there is a strong correlation between familial factors and the presence of PCOS.2

Medical management of PCOS is aimed at the treatment of metabolic derangements, anovulation, hirsutism, and menstrual irregularity. The use of insulin-sensitizing drugs to improve insulin sensitivity is associated with a reduction in circulating androgen levels, as well as improvement in both the ovulation rate and glucose tolerance.  The Endocrine Society has published a clinical practice guideline on hirsutism evaluation and treatment in premenopausal women.  ACOG notes that eflornithine in conjunction with laser treatment is superior to laser therapy alone in treating hirsutism. 
Kung gusto naman uminom ng gamot kasabay ang PCOS natural treatment na nabanggit, mayroon ring pwedeng ireseta ang doktor. Malamang, magbibigay siya ng contraceptives o birth control pills. Ang gamot na ito ay may lamang estrogen at progestin, kaya dadami ang female hormones sa katawan habang kakaunti ang male hormones. Makakatulong ang birth control pills hindi lamang sa pagiging regular ng dalas at dami ng pagregla, kung hindi pati na rin sa pagbabawas ng excessive bleeding, ng labis na hair growth, at ng acne.
Clomiphene (Clomid) is an oral medication that is the most common treatment used to induce ovulation. The use of both metformin and clomiphene has about the same fertility results as clomiphene use alone. A benefit is that metformin may help reduce the risk for ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (see also "What is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) during assisted reproductive technology (ART) fertility treatments. Other treatments to stimulate ovulation include another oral medication called letrozole (Femara) and gonadotropins which are hormones that are given by injection. In vitro fertilization (IVF) and in vitro maturation (IVM) may be other fertility treatment options.
Diagnosis of PCOS may be difficult because the signs and symptoms can be subtle and varied. The most common manifestations include hirsutism, infertility, insulin resistance, and menstrual irregularities.2 Physicians can diagnose PCOS when other causes of the symptoms or laboratory abnormalities are excluded; when oligo-ovulation or anovulation, usually manifested as oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea, is present; and when there is clinically confirmed hyperandrogenism (e.g., hirsutism, acne). Although the ovaries may be polycystic, this is usually not necessary for diagnosis. There is debate over which criteria should be used (e.g., 1990 National Institutes of Health criteria,3 2003 Rotterdam consensus workshop criteria4). Guidelines suggest screening women with PCOS for other disorders, such as hyperlipidemia, and treating accordingly.5
If Chief goes to jail or gets probation, then she may have to. Or otherwise will eventually have to at some point. When addicts' junkie luck runs out and they begin to lose their basic comforts/necessities, they start to do things that they told themselves they'd never do. Nobody started out on heroin telling themselves that they'd do anything for the drug.
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.
In contrast, another recent meta-analysis reviewed 26 studies that evaluated the use of letrozole in women with PCOS. The use of letrozole in cycles for timed intercourse was associated with higher live birth (nine studies; OR 1.63; 95% CI: 1.31 to 2.03; n=1783; I2=3%) and clinical pregnancy rates (fourteen studies; OR 1.32; 95% CI: 1.09 to 1.60; n=2066; I2=25%) compared with CC treatment; however, this evidence was poor. Studies comparing the use of letrozole versus ovarian drilling revealed no differences in live birth, clinical pregnancy or OHSS rates. The administration of letrozole for 5 or 10 days at a dose of 5 or 7.5 mg/day displayed similar clinical pregnancy rates 42. A recent study found that the use of letrozole was associated with higher live birth rates and ovulation among 750 infertile women with polycystic ovary syndrome compared with clomiphene 43.
Why does she act like everyone is either rich or dirt poor… She complains about being hungry than regularly spends $50+ on Amazon shit instead of food… Some people can live in big houses but still have to budget. Being clean and somewhat functional of a human being doesn't make someone rich & privileged. Using opportunities instead of squandering them doesn't mean being privileged. It's called not being a sack of lazy shit like you, Tuna.
“If a woman has fewer than eight menstrual periods a year on a chronic basis, she probably has a 50 to 80 percent chance of having polycystic ovary syndrome based on that single observation,” said John Nestler, the chair of the department of internal medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University. “But if she has infrequent menstruation and she has elevated levels of androgens such as testosterone in the blood, than she has a greater than 90 percent chance of having the condition.”
Ya que el PCOS no se puede curar, es importante controlar la afección de su hija. Manténgase en contacto con el proveedor de atención médica de su hija, hablándole con sinceridad sobre la efectividad del tratamiento y la respuesta de la niña; menciónele si nota algún cambio nuevo. Y lleve a su hija a hacerse chequeos de control regulares para garantizar que le detecten y controlen cualquier problema de salud.

A woman should shed this lining at least four times a year, says Dunaif. One option: taking progesterone (often called a “progesterone challenge”). But the resulting bleed can be heavy for some women. Another: Take birth control pills to get the regular cycle back online. These have the added benefit of lowering male hormones, too. What’s more, there are noted benefits of taking hormonal birth control that are true across the board, like getting regular, predictable periods and having up to a 20 and 50 percent lower risk of colon (colorectal) cancer and ovarian cancer, respectively.

PCOS's principal signs and symptoms are related to menstrual disturbances and elevated levels of male hormones (androgens). Menstrual disturbances can include delay of normal menstruation (primary amenorrhea), the presence of fewer than normal menstrual periods (oligomenorrhea), or the absence of menstruation for more than three months (secondary amenorrhea ). Menstrual cycles may not be associated with ovulation (anovulatory cycles) and may result in heavy bleeding.
Metformin is among one of the main treatments to target insulin resistance if you have prediabetes or diabetes, including because of PCOS. The advice is controversial, but some physicians believe that PCOS always requires metformin, notes Dr. Dunaif. “There’s no reason to give every woman with PCOS metformin. It’s a good and safe drug, but there’s no point in taking it if you don’t need it,” she says. (She notes that it has such a good safety profile that even when overprescribed, it doesn’t cause any harm.) But it’s not a good way to reduce the male hormone symptoms, like excess hair growth.

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).
Fasting insulin level or GTT with insulin levels (also called IGTT). Elevated insulin levels have been helpful to predict response to medication and may indicate women needing higher dosages of metformin or the use of a second medication to significantly lower insulin levels. Elevated blood sugar and insulin values do not predict who responds to an insulin-lowering medication, low-glycemic diet, and exercise. Many women with normal levels may benefit from combination therapy. A hypoglycemic response in which the two-hour insulin level is higher and the blood sugar lower than fasting is consistent with insulin resistance. A mathematical derivation known as the HOMAI, calculated from the fasting values in glucose and insulin concentrations, allows a direct and moderately accurate measure of insulin sensitivity (glucose-level x insulin-level/22.5).
