Those of us with PCOS are especially vulnerable to heart-damaging metabolic syndrome – a disorder which is expected to affect between 50 and 75 million men and women in the U.S. alone this year.
But you don’t have to be part of that group if you can adapt to a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise.
Weight loss is crucial for most victims of metabolic syndrome, who tend to have weight problems, though it is present in about 5% of people with normal body weight. The condition affects 22% of people who are overweight and 60% of those considered obese.
Adults who continue to gain five or more pounds per year raise their risk of developing metabolic syndrome by up to 45%. So remember: it’s never too late to begin countering the effects of this condition by losing weight via a healthier lifestyle.
Even if you’re of normal weight, diet and regular exercise can help reverse the symptoms of PCOS and metabolic syndrome.
