Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome – PCOS

It is a condition/hormonal disorder that disturbs women’s reproductive hormone levels, leading to unusual menstrual cycles and infertility. It majorly affects blood glucose levels, and almost half of the women develop type 2 diabetes. It is a syndrome that affects the ovaries and the ovulation process.

Causes Of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

The root cause of PCOS is still undiscovered, but the following factors may lead to PCOS:

  • Excess Insulin: 

Insulin is a hormone produced in the Islets of Langerhans (pancreas) and enables the body to break down sugar to release energy. When the cells become resistant to insulin, the blood glucose levels rise, triggering androgen. Excess of androgen hormone results in difficulty in ovulation. 

  • Low-Grade Inflammation: 

The term is to describe the substance produced by white blood cells to fight infection. According to research, women with PCOS have a type of low-grade inflammation that triggers androgen production. It also leads to blood vessels and heart problems.

  • Heredity: 

According to the research, PCOS is a hereditary disorder and transfers from generation to generation.

Symptoms Of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome 

The major symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome are cysts in the ovaries, irregular menstrual cycle, and high male hormone levels, namely androgen. The basic problem is the extra production of the male hormone androgen because it affects the ovulation procedure and disturbs the menstrual cycle and other hormones. 

Moreover, women tend to develop insulin resistance leading to obesity. Thus, increasing the risk of type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.  The other common symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome include increased bleeding, acne, skin darkness, baldness, weight gain, and severe headaches.
