Slide 1: ==== ==== Thousands of women have said good riddance to their painful ovarian cyst in 8 weeks or less. You can too! http://moreinformation.info/ovariancyst ==== ==== PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a common hormonal imbalance affecting approximately one in 10 women. It is estimated that a fifth of women have PCO (Polycystic Ovaries) and a half to three quarters of these experience symptoms at some point in their lives. The hormone imbalance creates too much oestrogen and increased testosterone on the blood and not enough follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in the ovaries to release an egg regularly. The condition was first described in 1934 by Irving Stein and Michael Leventhal and is therefore often referred to as either 'hyperandrogen anovulation syndrome' or Stein Leventhal Syndrome'. So what is the difference between having PCOS and Polycystic Ovaries? PCOS sufferers have polycystic ovaries and the symptoms associated with the syndrome. You can have PCO without actually having PCOS. What are the symptoms? It can be difficult to diagnose PCOS as women with the condition can display any single symptom or a combination. Very few women have the same set of symptoms. FACT: About 80% of women with PCOS have polycystic ovaries present in their body and around 50% of those with Polycystic Ovaries have PCOS and the rest have PCO. Symptoms can include: Irregular periods - Some women will have normal periods, while most will have some changes to their cycle. Bleeding can either be really heavy or lighter. Periods may also be or become irregular and could also stop altogether. In teens, the diagnosis of PCOS may be delayed as this could possibly be normal. Unwanted bodily hair - Also known as Hirsutism, this symptom is due to the excess in androgens (male hormones such as testosterone). Acne - This symptom is also brought on by an increase in androgens. Chronic fatigue, fatigue Joint pain Hair loss - Also known as Alopecia, is the thinning of scalp hair in a 'male-like' pattern. Tender breasts Bloating
Slide 2: Mood swings Difficulty in conceiving - This is usually related to the lack of egg release or ovulation and can be complicated by being overweight. There is also an increased risk of recurrent miscarriage. Depression Abdominal pain Dizziness Problems with being overweight - Studies show that two thirds of PCOS sufferers are affected. Weight gain is usually in the abdominal region and is associated with the body not processing insulin normally. The insulin resistance is caused by weight gain and in itself does not necessarily cause weight gain. Those who do not have this symptom are either in the normal weight range or underweight. Increased tendency to faint Cysts Small follicles on the ovaries Headaches Thyroid problems Poor memory Panic attacks Constant thirst Extreme cravings If left untreated PCOS can lead to various life threatening conditions such as: Diabetes Heart disease Cardiovascular disease Endometrial cancer - This can occur due to anovulatory menstrual cycles. Uterine cancer High blood pressure (hypertension) High cholesterol Kidney problems FACT: When chronic anovulation (lack of egg being released regularly) occurs the lining of the uterus (endometrium) may thicken and may lead to abnormal cell changes and an increased risk of uterine and endometrial cancer as women age. What is the cause? The exact cause of PCOS is still relatively unknown. With the studies that have been done to date, there appears to be a hereditary and lifestyle link. It is also believed to involve the ovaries inability to produce the correct proportions of hormone. I think Collette Harris describes it best, "The pituitary gland senses that the ovary is not working properly, and in turn releases abnormal amounts of luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), which are both linked to the ovary's ability to develop and release and egg. It is when this ability to ovulate becomes disabled that infertility can occur in women with PCOS."
Slide 3: FACT: Ovarian cysts are follicles or eggs which have matured but have not yet been released. Diagnosing PCOS As there are many symptoms associated with PCOS, a combination of factors is used to diagnose the condition. Currently there is no one test to diagnose PCOS. Before visiting your doctor to get a thorough examination, find out your family medical history, write down any symptoms you may have and any thing in your medical history that you think may be relevant. Tests that can be performed are the following: Transvaginal ultrasound - uterus, ovaries and the pelvis. Blood tests for Androgens (testosterone, DJEAS, andostenedione), Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) and Free Androgen Index (FAI). Blood tests for oestradiol, FSH and LH. Blood tests for Thyroid TSH and Prolactin levels which can mimic PCOS symptoms. Blood tests for fasting glucose, insulin and cholesterol. There are also other tests for the Ovaries, Adrenal or Pituitary Glands that can be done to rule out any conditions associated. FACT: If there are more than 15 follicles visible in an ovary on a pelvic ultrasound it is diagnosed as PCO. Is there a cure? At present there is no cure for the condition although symptoms can be treated with varying degrees of success and by sorting out or improving any underlying hormonal and metabolic problems, the cysts will often either disappear or reduce in number. The treatment of PCOS depends partially on the stage of life the woman is in. By taking the contraceptive pill, it can help to balance out the menstrual cycle of a woman with PCOS, mask any symptoms and prevent the risk of uterine cancer. Treatment for infertility can include weight loss programs; ovulation medications such as Follistim, Letrozole, Clomiphene and Fonal-F; ovarian drilling surgery and IVF. A diuretic pill called Spironolactone can assist in reversing acne or excess hair growth. Metformin is used to treat Type 2 Diabetes affecting the action of insulin and can assist in reducing the symptoms of PCOS. To find out what you can do to treat your symptoms please consult your specialist. What can weight loss do?
Slide 4: Even a weight loss of 5% will reduce insulin resistance and can result in the improvement of symptoms. Physical activity, even without weight loss is effective in reducing insulin resistance although it is highly recommended that you combine your exercise and meal plan to get the most benefits. Benefits of weight loss can include: Ovulation restoration Reduction of symptoms Reduce the risks of diabetes and insulin resistance Reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease Benefits of physical activity includes: Weight loss Improved self esteem Reduces the risk of Cardiovascular Disease Improves symptoms To aide weight loss and a reduction in symptoms it is recommended to adhere to a meal plan similar to diabetics with low GI foods. A high protein and low carbohydrate meal plan is great in the initial weight loss phase.
