PCOS - Understanding the Disease



What is PCOD?
Polycystic ovarian disease or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a condition affecting periods, hormones, fertility and overall appearance and has severe implication on long term health.

About 2-26/100 women worldwide are affected by PCOD, nearly 3 out of every 10 women between the reproductive age group of 15-30 years.


Symptoms of PCOD?
  • Irregularities or infrequent menses with disproportionate or scanty discharge,
  • Excessive weight gain in respect to amount of food consumed or inability to lose weight even after regular exercising
  • Acnes, hair loss, depression, anxiety or irritability.
One can have either one or a combination of these symptoms.



How to diagnose PCOD?
  • Irregular menses, menses happening just 3-4 times/year
  • Hormones with increased levels of Insulin or excessive testosterone
  • Ultrasound suggestive of PCOD
  • Excessive disproportionate unknown weight gain

Which doctors should be approached for treatment of PCOD?
Ideally a Gynecologist or an endocrinologist should be approached. 
Early diagnosis & treatment helps in better healing and, a delay in seeking treatment would require long term correction.


Are there any long term health implications of PCOD?
  • Increased level of insulin may cause insulin resistance which may ultimately lead to Diabetes.
  • Rampant obesity in patients my affect cardio-vascular health which may totally change the life of a person in the long run.
  • Cancer may occur in the long term if treatment is not taken. Risk increases in women having less than 3 menses/year as it may lead to thickening of lining of uterus.

How to correct PCOD?
  • First and foremost visit a Gynecologist or an Endocrinologist to get hormonal correction as it would resolve fertility issues. 
  • Exercise & health diet have a huge impact in correction of PCOD.
  • Taking smaller shorter meals with lots of green vegetables, lean meat. Also decrease intake of caffeine, alcohol, soft drinks and junk food.
  • Do not miss breakfast at any cost. 
  • Exercise 5times/week for around 30-40 minutes. Get a targeted BMI between 19-25 which would ideally help in reducing the risk of Diabetes, Hypertension and Cancer
  • Do not miss your medications. 

Is there a cure for PCOD?
  • Currently there is no total cure for PCOD, but the condition is quite similar to Diabetes little lifestyle changes can bring a huge difference. 
  • Long term check on hormone levels and proper medication are of importance.

    1. I'm so exited to share my testimonies about the Good Work of Dr. Emmanuel who cured my Herpes virus with his herbs, I never thought that I will live on earth before the year runs out. I have been suffering from a deadly Herpes virus (HVS) for the past (4)years now; I had spent a lot of money going from one Hospital to another looking for way to get rid of this disease, the hospital have been my home everyday residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching
      through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr.Emmanuel helped someone in curing his Herpes virus using his healing
      Herbs, quickly I copied his email just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to a preparation for the herbs items, of which I did exactly what he instructed me to do, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he
      did, few days after i went back to the same hospital that previously confirmed me as Herpes virus positive and this time the result declared me negative to the deadly virus of Herpes virus....so I decided to share my testimony, that nothing is impossible with God, God use a man to healed me. No matter what you are passing through, no matter how deadly the sickness is and no matter what the situation is God that did mine is still going to do yours, suffering from AIDS, ALS,hiv/aids,copd, asthma..
