Hormones and Weight in PCOS


Living with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) can be tough, especially when it comes to managing weight. One big reason for weight issues in PCOS is hormone imbalances.


Knowing how these hormones affect your weight can help you handle PCOS better and stay healthy.


Hormones are super important for how your body works, like how fast you burn calories and when you feel hungry. In PCOS, hormone imbalances, like too much insulin and androgens (like testosterone), can make you gain weight and make it hard to lose.


Many women with PCOS have insulin resistance, which means their bodies don't use insulin well. This can lead to high insulin levels and more weight gain, especially around your belly.


High androgen levels in PCOS can also make you gain weight, especially around your belly. Androgens can mess with your metabolism and make your body store more fat.


Managing weight with PCOS can be hard, but understanding how hormones affect your weight can make it easier. By living healthy and getting medical advice when you need it, you can manage your weight and overall health with PCOS.
