What is PCOD?

PCOD is a hormonal condition that affects women during the reproductive years of life. The full form of PCOD is Polycystic Ovarian Disease.

Medical research is yet to pinpoint the exact cause behind the PCOD problem. Some of the factors that can lead to this condition include:

  • Family history: Women whose mothers have been diagnosed with PCOD are more likely to develop the condition too.
  • Insulin resistance: Studies have shown that women with PCOD usually have difficulty in utilising insulin to manage blood glucose levels. This can lead to a rise in blood glucose and cause the body to produce even more insulin. Excess insulin can, in turn, trigger the production of more male hormones.
  • Inflammation: Inflammation in the body can also stimulate the production of male hormones, like androgen, which are noticeably higher in women with PCOD.
  • Low progesterone: If a woman’s body does not make enough of progesterone, she might skip periods for extended periods of time.
