with Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) are more prone to developing Polycystic
Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of infertility and menstrual irregularity.
Ovaries secrete abnormally high levels of
testosterone and other hormones with the onset of PCOS, which is
also known as Sclerocystic Ovarian Disease, Stein-Leventhal
Syndrome and Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD).
5-10% of all women of childbearing age are affected by this
disorder. Post-menopausal women can also suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
|"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding
me towards taking control of my health. It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am only 27 and was really feeling the effects of my IR and
PCOS, with terrible lethargy and fearing that I would never get my active
life back. I was taking glucophage which did nothing for me but cause stomach
and bowel problems. After 2 1/2 weeks on Insulite PCOS, I feel an amazing
difference in energy and even a little in my weight.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

Women with classic Metabolic Syndrome symptoms like excess weight and obesity are prone to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. But they do not have a monopoly on the latter condition because females of a healthy weight and even lean women are also vulnerable to PCOS.
A root cause of PCOS is Insulin Resistance. This hormonal imbalance can cause a wide variety of symptoms, ranging from menstrual irregularity, infertility and excessive facial and body hair to acne, fatigue, mood swings and male pattern baldness. Some women suffer from many of the classic symptoms of Polycystic Overian Syndrome without realising they have this latter disorder.
The bad news doesn’t end there, either. PCOS sufferers with Metabolic Syndrome are also at greater risk of developing
Gestational Diabetes and have higher rates of liver, breast and
Only in recent years has Metabolic Syndrome undergone extensive
scientific investigation. The medical community has made a
dramatic change in the way it views and treats this condition
after a growing body of evidence pointed to Insulin Resistance as an underlying cause of Metabolic Syndrome.
Insulin Resistance causes an imbalance of glucose and insulin levels, which impairs the vital process whereby glucose is converted into energy by passing through the cell wall via insulin.
The cell walls become densitized to insulin by Insulin Resistance, with the result that much glucose is denied access to the cell and, instead, free floats in the bloodstream, which takes it to the liver. Once there, the glucose is converted to fat and distributed around the body, where it can cause excess weight gain and lead to a variety of serious disorders, including PCOS, heart disease and certain forms of cancer.
Insulin Resistance also causes unhealthy levels of insulin in the body, which can lead to the onset of Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes, which, themselves, are increased risk factors for blindness, kidney disease and the need for amputation.
At the present time, there is no single pill that will cure
Metabolic Syndrome, just as there are no pharmaceutical drugs
that will heal PCOS. But there are ways to address Insulin
Resistance, an underlying cause of these conditions as well as PCOS
symptoms. If you wish to return to optimum health, we feel you should
consider a system that combines nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs
and minerals that are disease specific), a realistic exercise
program, nutritional guidance, guidance on combating carbohydrate addiction and a support system that will
help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices and lose weight.
