The precise reasons behind PCOS development isn’t known, but it could be associated with high levels of androgens that prevent ovaries from producing hormones and creating eggs regularly. Insulin resistance, inflammation, and genes are all connected to the excess production of androgen. • Insulin Resistance: Almost 70 percent of PCOS patients report insulin resistance, which means their cells fail to utilize insulin the right way. Their bodies begin demanding more insulin and the pancreas produce higher quantities to compensate for this deficit. Additional insulin stimulates the ovaries and generates greater quantities of male hormones. Obesity can lead to insulin resistance and together, these two conditions enhance your chances of type 2 diabetes. • Genes: According to medical studies, PCOS runs in certain families. It is possible that several genes contribute to this problem rather than a single one. • Inflammation: PCOS patients report higher levels of inflammation in the body. Overweight women are more susceptible to inflammation. The condition is linked to an excessive production of male hormones.
