PCOS

PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have irregular periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment along with fat loss may reduce the risk of long-term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Complications

Women with PCOS require long-term care because many (almost 80%) are at increased risk for diabetes, heart disease and high insulin levels— making weight loss difficult. Sleep apnea may also be present. You may have a high chance of diabetes during pregnancy. Sometimes thyroid imbalance is also seen in women with PCOS.

 Exercise

Even if weight loss is not at an issue, exercise will manage other parameters like insulin levels, it will improve body image, and improve overall quality of life. If you are overweight or obese, exercise helps in managing insulin resistance that can help fat loss, manage blood sugar if it is borderline. It increases hormone sensitivity. Exercise should include a good balance between cardio and weight training.  Weight training helps in maintaining muscle which helps control blood glucose.Yoga has also been found to be beneficial but will be in addition to cardio and weights.
