Did you know that September is PCOS awareness month :
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) affects 1 in 10 women and is the leading cause of #infertility. 💁🏼I know of several women that have battled PCOS but have gotten their lives back thanks to #Plexus! ... did you know ...
💁🏼80% of women with 6 or fewer periods per year, have #PCOS. 💁🏼if left untreated, it may lead to Uterine and Endometrial #Cancer, as well as cardiac disease. 💁🏼Women with PCOS have higher rates of #anxiety & #depression than women without the syndrome. 💁🏼Elevated #insulin or insulin resistance are seen in the majority of women with PCOS. 💁🏼Women with PCOS are at a higher risk of developing obstructive sleep apnew (OSA) due to the influence of androgens affecting sleep receptors in the brain. 💁🏼Women with PCOS have a 70% prevalence of elevated ⬆️ triglycerides and low ⬇️ HDL (“good” cholesterol). 💁🏼One of the earliest signs of elevated androgens in adolescents with PCOS is #acne. 💁🏼Clinical studies demonstrate that modest #weightloss of 5-10% of initial body weight improves metabolic, physiological and psychological aspects of PCOS. 💁🏼Women with PCOS have a higher incidence of gestational #diabetes, miscarriages, preterm deliveries, and stillbirths.
For woman with PCOS and those experiencing symptoms (menstrual irregularity, excess hair growth, weight gain/trouble losing weight, thinning hair, depression/anxiety, infertility, pelvic pain, sleep apnea, etc.), it's important to know they're not alone! #GUThealth has an incredibly positive impact on PCOS and our Plexus #Slim assists in regulating #insulin levels, balancing hormones and allows the body to use insulin more efficiently. 💁🏼 Do you or anyone you know suffer from PCOS? #plexusslim #probio5 #biocleanse #pcos #imheretohelp #letstalk
