PCOS, Acne, and Obesity… A Surprising Connection?

PCOS, Acne, and Obesity… A Surprising Connection?

If you’ve ever been diagnosed with a hormonal disorder, or any other kind of disease of the endocrine system, you know full well just how complex of a system it is. Certainly, women who have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) know it without a doubt. The hormones of our body are responsible for so many functions, and interact with each other in so many ways, that what might seem like a “minor” hormonal imbalance can put the whole body out of whack!

That’s the case with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). The most common of all women’s hormonal diseases–affecting somewhere between five and ten percent of all women of childbearing age–this condition manifests in so many different ways, doctors often have a hard time diagnosing it. Symptoms can be anything from weight gain to infertility, from baldness to excessive hair growth. At the root of the condition is Insulin Resistance, wherein the body loses its ability to properly absorb glucose and the entire hormonal system is thrown off kilter.

Acne and Obesity: A Surprising Study

Two of the most obvious and classic signs of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) are obesity and acne. The former is caused when that glucose, rather than being converted into energy, is converted into fat. The latter is a result of askew hormone levels. But what is a bit bewildering about this disease is that these two conditions do not always go hand in hand.

In fact, a surprising study reveals that obese women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) are much less likely to have acne; they have more problems with ovulation, but the skin problems are not as extreme. However, women who have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and remain thin, are much more likely to struggle with acne.

This study, of course, indicates exactly why this condition is often so difficult to diagnose–but there is no reason to lose hope. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is severe, but it is also reversible!

Coping with PCOS

 The thing to remember about this disease is that it is rooted, fundamentally, in Insulin Resistance. What this means is that the effects of the illness can be combated simply by engaging in a healthier lifestyle–increased levels of exercise, and also a more balanced diet.
