Spending more time in the sun could help older women avoid insulin resistance
and the cluster of increased risk factors for cardiovascular disease
called metabolic syndrome
. Both latter conditions are often closely linked with PCOS.
Sun exposure helps the skin make vitamin D, which older people can suffer a deficiency of, due to the aging process. Lack of this vitamin encourages insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, though people seeking to increase vitamin D through exposure have to be careful about limiting their time in the sun because ultra-violet damage can cause skin cancer.
However, the amount of sunlight required to make vitamin D for the body is always less than exposure which results in reddening or burning. So it should be possible to get the benefits of sunlight through small doses without increasing the risk of skin cancer.
