Feeling Drained? Your Cortisol Might Be to Blame

If you've been feeling unusually tired and fatigued, especially while managing PCOS, your body's cortisol levels might be a key factor.

Cortisol, known as the stress hormone, plays a crucial role in regulating your energy levels, mood, and overall health.

For women with PCOS, understanding how cortisol affects your body can be pivotal in managing symptoms effectively.

What is Cortisol?

Cortisol is a hormone produced by your adrenal glands in response to stress.

It helps regulate your body's response to stressful situations and influences many processes, including metabolism, immune response, and blood sugar levels.

However, chronic stress can lead to consistently high levels of cortisol, which may negatively impact your health.

Signs of High Cortisol Levels

  1. Persistent Fatigue: Feeling tired even after a full night's sleep.

  2. Weight Gain: Especially around the abdomen, despite efforts to manage weight.

  3. Mood Swings: Increased irritability, anxiety, or depression.

  4. Digestive Issues: Such as bloating, indigestion, or changes in appetite.

  5. Sleep Problems: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.

  6. Weakened Immune System: Frequent colds or infections.

Final Thoughts

Understanding cortisol and its impact on your body is the first step towards better managing your energy levels and overall health.
