Insulin is a fat gain hormone…Over production of insulin is the base of PCOS as well as metabolic syndrome, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes. When insulin is “off”…the balance of other hormones if “off.”…
The main medication prescribed for PCOS is metformin (glucophage). Did you realize that metformin was originally a medication for diabetes? The direct link between PCOS, metabolic syndrome, and uncontrolled Met B is seldom mentioned.
Many doctors and gynecologists still fail to diagnose their patients with PCOS. Perhaps the standard intake form at a gynecologist’s office should ask questions directly related to PCOS in an easy check-off fashion:
___heavy periods with clots?
___weight gain around the middle?
___inability to focus/concentrate?
Most of these questions are never asked at a routine visit and the answers can help pinpoint a syndrome that can affect the rest of the woman’s life.
For women with Metabolism B and PCOS, it is necessary to balance insulin. Since The Metabolism Miracle controls the over-release of insulin,.. the program levels hormones and symptoms greatly improve or disappear.
Remember that PCOS is the most common cause of female infertility. With that said, $2,000,000,000 is spent on fertility treatments in the U.S. each year. Ironically, many of these treatments might not be effective or might not be necessary for women if the underlying hormonal imbalance isn’t “fixed”.
Many women and couples are referred to fertility specialists without the simple labwork that would clearly show uncontrolled Met B. Many of these women have Metabolism B and PCOS. I have personally seen many women with Metabolism B and PCOS ( who had previously been unable to conceive or sustain a pregnancy) finally get their body in hormonal balance and have successful pregnancies and healthy babies.
It is important to realize that while your body is unique, many other people share the same symptoms you do. If you have any combination of the listed symptoms, and you may have felt embarrassed or alone…realize that 5-10% of all women have the same symptoms. There is an answer to the problem, and it is The Metabolism Miracle. If you or someone you know has PCOS, let them know they are not alone and that this lifestyle program will change their life.
