Why Fish Oils Work So Well on PCOS-Linked Pre-Diabetes

Scientists have located the molecular mechanism that makes omega-3 fatty acids from fish so effective in reversing two key factors in PCOS-linked pre-diabetes, namely heart-damaging chronic inflammation and insulin resistance.

Researchers at the University of California School of Medicine in San Diego identified a key receptor on macrophages, which are found abundantly in excess body fat -often an underlying cause of both PCOS and pre-diabetes.
 
Macrophages are specialized white blood cells that engulf and digest cellular debris and pathogens. Omega-3 fatty acids activate this macrophage receptor, resulting in broad anti-inflammatory effects and improved insulin sensitivity, both of which can improve the management of pre-diabetes and PCOS symptoms, making you feel better.
 
Excess weight and the onset of pre- and type 2 diabetes are closely linked, women of healthy weight and even lean females can also develop these latter conditions along with PCOS.
 
Both PCOS and pre-diabetes are reversible with a healthy lifestyle based on a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise to achieve better weight control. But, if neglected, pre-diabetes can lead to the type 2 variety, which is irreversible in most cases and may require insulin injections to manage.
 
Type 2 diabetes is a severly increased risk factor for blindness, kidney disease and the need for amputation.
