Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrinology disorder in women, and the exact cause is unknown. Some statistics report that up to one in ten women have PCOS, and up to 70% of cases are undiagnosed. Women with PCOS produce higher than normal levels of male sex hormones, which can cause a myriad of problems.

Left untreated, women with PCOS are at higher risk for insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, infertility, heart disease, sleep apnea, mood disorders, and endometrial cancer. But a hormone-rebalancing weight loss plan has been proven to improve fertility chances and PCOS symptoms.

What are the symptoms of PCOS?

If you live with a history of ovarian cysts, excess facial and body hair, persistent acne, infertility, hair loss, and/or irregular periods, schedule a visit with an Ogden Clinic Medical Weight Loss provider to be tested for PCOS.
