Did you know that females as young as teenagers can begin developing atherosclerosis if they have PCOS?
This is a type of “hardening of the arteries” in which harmful cholesterol and fatty substances called triglycerides begin building up in the walls of arteries.
As the condition progresses, the space in arteries to the heart may narrow, reducing the flow of oxygen-rich blood and nutrients and causing cardiovascular disease.
Those of us with PCOS have an increased risk of a heart attack. So it’s advisable to get tested every year from your 30s onwards, with a full blood examination to measure levels of triglycerides as well LDL “bad” and HDL “good” cholesterol.
Other tests, such as the one for C-Reactive Protein (CRP), which increases when heart-damaging inflammation is present inside your body, may also be warranted if you have a family history of heart attacks. Having a mother, father or sibling who died of heart disease before 55 increases your risk, especially if the victim was the same sex as you.
