What causes PCOS?
- It’s normally a hormonal imbalance related to the way our body produces insulin to regulate blood sugar from the foods we eat like carbs and sugars to be specific.
- It causes inflammation and can also lead to insulin resistance, an important underlying cause of the symptoms of PCOS.
- If our cells begin to RESIST the insulin, that means we can’t induce sugar into the cells. Thus, we become tired and heavy with
- Our environment and lifestyles have evolved too rapidly for our bodies to cope up. We are still genetically imposed to the habits of our ancestors, they ate various nutritious foods, like low carb diets, and who did lot of exercise!
- Some people may have a genetic tendancy of insulin resistance, while others develop it through stress or unhealthy lifestyle. Many women with PCOS have higher than normal cortisol levels and flight or flight hormone as part of their genetic makeup.
Because the problem is that insulin and cortisol and work together, so if insulin is high, so is cortisol. For instance, if we’re running from a tiger to avoid from being eaten brutally or when we just lose our car keys! both are a huge and similar crisis and our bodies can hardly tell the difference. So our cortisol spikes up high and insulin is created right along with it to get sugar into our blood cells for sustaining energy to RUN!
In such a complex process this high insulin may stimulate the body to produce huge amounts of male hormones or androgens. High amount of insulin also increase the change of androgens to estrogens or female hormones, upsetting a sensitive balance between androgens, estrogens, and progesterone, having a quick effect on all symptoms of PCOS.
