DIM Complex: naturally treat Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), is a common health problem caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones. Between 5% and 10% of women between 15 and 44 have PCOS. Most women find out they have PCOS in their 20s and 30s but it can happen at any age after puberty.
Women of all races and ethnicity are at risk of PCOS. Your risk of PCOS may be higher if you have obesity or if you have a mother, sister, or aunt with PCOS. The health risks associated with having this mysterious female syndrome includes infertility, insulin resistance, increased risk of the development of diabetes (especially if women are overweight), cholesterol and blood fat abnormalities, cardiovascular disease (heart disease, heart attack and stroke) and endometrial cancer.
The exact causes of PCOS are still relatively unknown, although, we are able to link a few variables that contribute to its presence:
- Excess androgens (male hormones e.g. testosterone)
- High levels of insulin in the blood due to insulin resistance
- Abnormally high presence of estrogen
Having PCOS doesn’t mean you cannot lead a happy, normal and fertile life, it just means that nutrition needs to be a top priority in order to alleviate painful symptoms and to avoid developing diseases in future. With patients being prescribed unnecessary and even harmful treatments, an effective, natural solution is now becoming the preferred method of treatment.
