Polycystic ovary syndrome is a common condition related to a hormonal imbalance in women of reproductive age. It is characterized by high levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. Hyperinsulinemia (high blood sugar level) with insulin resistance is believed to be a key link in the generation of the symptoms of PCOS such as anovulatory infertility and hyperandrogenism (excess secretion of male sex hormone androgen).
Nowadays, many young ladies are diagnosed with PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease).Studies reveal that 1 out of every 5 young women is suffering from PCOD in India. That really is a depressing number. PCOD is a condition that disrupts a woman’s endocrine system and raises her level of androgens (male hormones) and is seen to have a genetic connection.
