I’m sure you want to improve your health. If you have PCOS and high cholesterol, you can show many undesirable risks that can be improved or even reversed with the right approach. Read on and find out what are the risks for PCOS and high cholesterol and how you can improve your condition for better health and longevity.
If you have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) you could be at risk for cardiovascular disease. PCOS and high cholesterol go hand in hand. In a healthy individual, LDL’s or the “bad” kind are usually very low and HDL’s, which are the healthy or “good” kind, are high. Unfortunately, because of this condition, the ratio of HDL’s to LDL’s is completely reversed. LDL is high and HDL is low, which greatly increases your chances of cardiovascular disease.
In fact, if you have PCOS and high cholesterol you have twice the risk of having artherosclerosis (plaque that deposits on the wall of your arteries) as compared to other women without this condition. As you probably already know, artherosclerosis greatly increases the chances of coronary heart disease.
What are some other conditions that can develop because of PCOS and high cholesterol?
With PCOS and high cholesterol you might feel the effect of hyperinsulemia. When this is present, the liver will produce high levels of triglycerides that are fatty lipids found in the blood. High levels of triglycerides become another risk factor for cardiovascular damage.
PCOS and high cholesterol can also be observed in people that have Insulin Resistance. This resistance can cause LDL particles in your body to become smaller as well as denser than others who don’t suffer from this condition.
If you suffer from insulin resistance, then you’re not alone. Most women like you with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome have problems with this and it is also a cause of obesity problems. There are of course women that are in normal weight ranges with PCOS and high cholesterol that also have insulin resistance. In this case, the problem is caused by the male hormone testosterone as well as luteinizing hormone (LH).
In addition to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome there may be increased risks for many other conditions such a high blood pressure and metabolic syndrome, which is also called Syndrome X.
When addressing PCOS and high cholesterol the National Cholesterol Education Program suggests that these high levels must be addressed. However, medications taken alone without making lifestyle changes aren’t enough to really change the condition. Scott Grundy, MD. Ph.D., the American Heart Association representative to the NCEP says, “Changes in lifestyle have tremendous power in lowering the bad LDL as well as raising the good HDL.” If you focus on making these changes for PCOS and high cholesterol, you can improve and maintain healthy ranges (HDL, LDL and Triglycerides) that will improve diabetes and reduce inflammation.
It’s very important for you to realize that you can take drugs to address symptoms of PCOS and high cholesterol, but there aren’t any drugs that have the ability to reverse PCOS and high cholesterol as well as insulin resistance.
I’m sure you’re desire is to reverse your condition, so you don’t have to suffer from the symptoms and worry about the risk factors of PCOS and high cholesterol. There is hope, but you’re not going to improve and ultimately reverse this condition with a pill alone. It takes a process that includes many different components to form a complete system. These components:
- Nutraceuticals such as herbs, minerals and vitamins that are formulated to be disease specific.
- Sensible meal plan
- A sensible exercise program.
- A support network that can guide you to make the right choices and motivation to stick with the plan.
In conclusion, if you suffer from PCOS and high cholesterol you are at high risk of many conditions of cardiovascular disease. Fortunately with the right approach, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome along with high levels of cholesterol can be greatly improved and maybe even reversed in many cases. It’s up to you to learn what you must do to attain better health and greatly transform the quality of your life.
