Hamburg – Women who suffer a hormone dysfunction known as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) possibly can help their condition by losing weight. Patients who have PCOS, the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, overproduce the androgen and insulin, said professor Harald Klein of the German society of endocrinologists. A high insulin level in turn promotes weight gain and disturbs the hormonal balance.

“A loss of 5 per cent of one’s body weight reduces the symptoms of PCOS considerably,” said professor Hendrik Lehnert of Schleswig- Holstein’s university clinic in Luebeck.

In addition to being overweight, women who suffer from the hormonal dysfunction commonly have acne and dense body hair, while the hair on their heads is thinning.

Infertility often is also associated with PCOS. Women with the syndrome have irregular ovulation or no ovulation at all. When women with PCOS lose weight, chances improve for normal ovulation and, thus, a pregnancy. The risks of diabetes developing during pregnancy and miscarriage also are lowered.
