Polycystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD: What Is It?
Recent studies have shown that around 25% of the women between the age group of 12 to 45 suffer from polycystic ovarian disease or polycystic ovarian syndrome. PCOD is a health condition that affects the natural hormone levels in a woman, producing elevated amounts of the male hormone, creating an imbalance.
The disease affects the female ovaries causing irregularities in the production of progesterone and oestrogen, which are female hormones responsible for the proper functioning of the reproductive system, including ovulation. The term originates from the condition where multiple cysts are formed in the ovaries, leading to a host of health disorders in the female body, primarily weight gain and irregular menstrual cycles.
Causes, Symptoms and Effects of PCOD
Although a lot of research has been conducted on the ailment, it is still not clear as to what causes PCOD. It varies in each person, some of the common factors being:
- Hormonal imbalance (multiple reasons)
- Insulin imbalance
- Body inflammation (over-weight)
Weight gain can be both the cause and effect of PCOD, hence that is the first thing that should be kept under control by following a balanced diet chart for weight loss,besides the conventional clinical treatment.
How do you know that you are suffering from PCOD? Here are the indicators:
- Irregular periods and heavy menses
- Excess hair growth on the face and other parts of the body
- Hair fall
- Dark patches on the back of the neck and other parts of the body
- Frequent headaches
There may be other clinical symptoms, but these are the most common indicators of PCOS/PCOD.
PCOD, if remain untreated, can lead to:
- Ovarian cysts
- Higher than usual androgen and testosterone levels
- Metabolic syndrome
But don’t worry, as there is nothing a good diet and a healthy lifestyle cannot fix. That’s where Health Asters comes to your rescue.
