Women With PCOS are Especially Vulnerable to Endometrial Cancer

One of the most insidious aspects of PCOS is that the condition makes women vulnerable to many other disorders. These can range from heart-damaging metabolic syndrome (syndrome x) and diabetes to endometrial cancer.
 
The chance of getting endometrial cancer is a major concern for women with PCOS. Irregular periods and the absence of ovulation cause women to produce the hormone estrogen but not the hormone progesterone. The latter causes the endometrium to shed its lining each month via menstruation.
 
Without the production of progesterone, the endometrium becomes thick, which can cause heavy or irregular bleeding. Over time, this may lead to endometrial hyperplasia, which occurs when the lining grows too much and increases the risk of the onset of cancer.
 
It’s just another reason why it’s so important to adopt a healthy lifestyle involving diet and regualr exercise, such as the kind advocated by the Insulite PCOS System,  to improve the management of the symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
