How special is this announcement?! We can't wait to see the rest of their story unfold!!
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
What is it... To be diagnosed with the condition, your doctor looks for at least two of the following:
Irregular periods. Excess androgen. Polycystic ovaries. 1
So, PCOS... Sounds scary. What should you do about it? Where should you even start?
Where to start... Find the right healthcare provider who will find our YOUR specific causes of YOUR symptoms. Here's the thing... Everyone is unique and therefore may have different symptoms and causes.
Proper testing is CRUCIAL to get feedback on how your body is responding to what it perceives as stressors. Once you know how your body is responding, you will know how to tackle the symptoms.
What are the most common causes?
Excess insulin. Low-grade inflammation. Genetics.
You know what the good news about all of those are? YOU have control over all of those! What you eat, how you move, when you sleep, and what you think tell your body how to respond.
That's great news, but I don't know what to eat or how to do any of that other stuff. So now what?
You need someone who can connect the dots... Explain the story of your blood work and why your symptoms are manifesting in the way that they are. When the CAUSE of the symptoms is clear, it becomes clear how to meet your body's needs in an appropriate way to get you healthy! That's where having a great healthcare provider is crucial.
Then what... That's where your healthcare provider can make a very specific plan for YOU and YOUR needs, based on your blood work and your goals. You are special and unique. Your care plan should reflect that.
