Excess weight almost always involves the imbalance of blood sugar and insulin levels called insulin resistance, which can be an underlying cause of multiple disorders besides PCOS, including heart-damaging metabolic syndrome (syndrome x), and pre- and type 2 diabetes.
Insulin resistance impairs the vital process whereby blood glucose from food is converted into energy by passing through cell walls with the help of insulin. The resulting excess of glucose passes to the liver via the blood stream where it is turned into fat and then distributed around the body.
The good news, however, is that it’s never too late to lose weight and improve the management of your PCOS symptoms by switching to a healthier lifestyle based on a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise.
