PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) is a condition which affects how a woman’s ovaries function; ovaries not regularly releasing eggs; and having high levels of ‘male hormones’ (androgens). However, it is important to note that you can have PCOS without having cysts on your ovaries and be reassured that all women have androgens. Whilst the exact cause of PCOS is unknown, it is thought that it is associated with abnormal hormone levels in the body, including high levels of insulin. It is also often a hereditary condition, so it’s important to check if any close female relatives have had it. A low GI diet can help control symptoms and moderate insulin levels. Excess hair is a common complaint; however, this can be easily treated with laser hair removal and we ensure our regular PCOS clients receive a beneficial rate to support this process.
