I have PCOS, quite severly because of the excess weight I carry. Having said this, PCOS is not an obese side effect. There are plenty of women in the healthy weight range who have PCOS. It's a hormonal disorder and the best way of managing the syndrome is through permanent lifestyle changes like a low G.I. diet and daily exercise. Alot of women who have PCOS are insulin resistant, however many dr's don't link it up, therefore leading to women being tested too late, when the syndrome has already developed.
Many body systems are affected in polycystic ovary syndrome, resulting in several health complications, including menstrual dysfunction, infertility, hirsutism, acne, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Women with this disorder have an established increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and a still debated increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
The diagnostic traits of polycystic ovary syndrome are hyperandrogenism ( my gyno explained this to me as an increase in the male hormone) , chronic anovulation ( lack of ovulation ) , and polycystic ovaries.
