PCOS is a hormonal imbalance caused by a defect in the pancreas and causes the body to be insulin resistant. It is a genetic disorder, though the severity of the disorder can be impacted by diet and lifestyle choices. This complex disorder affects a woman’s entire body and can cause an imbalance in progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid levels. Because symptoms vary among those with PCOS,, it can be difficult to diagnose and treat, but as our understanding of this condition continues to grow, new and holistic treatments are emerging that improve the outcome for women.
What are the symptoms of PCOS?
Because diagnostic criteria vary, it can be difficult to diagnose and treat PCOS, but there are several common symptoms. It can lead to weight gain, irregular menstrual cycles, low progesterone, sub-fertility or infertility, acne, irregular hair growth, mood disorders, breast cancer, and even cardiovascular disease. These symptoms can make it difficult to get and stay pregnant, but it is still possible to have a healthy pregnancy with the excellent fertility treatments available.
Do I Have PCOS?
It can be difficult to diagnose PCOS because there is no definitive test to determine whether or not you have this condition. Your doctor may perform a pelvic exam, an ultrasound, take bloodwork and ask about your symptoms before offering a PCOS diagnosis. It can be even more difficult to diagnose PCOS because many patients can manage their weight and other symptoms through different lifestyle choices. Many women aren’t even aware that there is an issue until they try to get pregnant and discover that they are having trouble or until they have painful ovarian cysts that cause problems. That is why it is essential to take a comprehensive look at all of your symptoms to determine the root cause of your concerns.
Common PCOS Myths
It can be challenging to diagnose PCOS because no two cases present in the same way, and lifestyle choices can severely alter patients’ experiences. While many people living with PCOS experience symptoms such as weight gain and polycystic ovaries, not all do. In fact, only about 50% of people with PCOS have polycystic ovaries, and some don’t experience excessive weight gain. That is why it is essential to look at all of the symptoms that a patient may be experiencing to determine whether or not PCOS is a possibility.
Our Innovative PCOS Treatments
At Tier 1 Health and Wellness, we take a comprehensive approach to PCOS treatment to help you live a healthier, happier life. This can include making lifestyle changes, taking medications like metformin, hormone replacement therapy and more. The treatment depends on the patient’s goals, symptoms, and desired outcome.
While there is no cure for PCOS, taking measures to live a healthier lifestyle can go a long way in improving your overall well-being. In many cases, dietary changes and increased activity can help reduce insulin resistance and minimize the symptoms in a patient and even eliminate some symptoms. This can include reducing carbohydrates, increasing protein intake, and increasing the amount of exercise you get to help your body manage its own hormones better.
