An Overview Of How You Should Be Treating Your PCOS

Is There More To It Than Just Supplementing With Inositol?

Iif you have excess androgens or experience the associated signs & symptoms such as facial hair growth and acne, plus every other cause of excess androgens has been ruled out then you’ll have PCOS. But when it comes to treating PCOS, identifying your type should be the first step in the treatment process. And due to the limited information out there, this is actually quite hard to do. When defining any type of PCOS, we’re talking about which underlying condition is driving your symptoms.

f you have excess androgens or experience the associated signs & symptoms such as facial hair growth and acne, plus every other cause of excess androgens has been ruled out then you’ll have PCOS. But when it comes to treating PCOS, identifying your type should be the first step in the treatment process. And due to the limited information out there, this is actually quite hard to do. When defining any type of PCOS, we’re talking about which underlying condition is driving your symptoms.

Let’s look at insulin resistance (IR) as it's one of the four types. Insulin Resistance is very common amongst women with PCOS; in fact, 70% of women with PCOS will have it. But what does this mean? Basically, you’ve had insulin resistance long enough for it to cause your body to begin producing excess levels of androgen hormones. In other words, if you don’t reverse your insulin resistance, it could end up being the main driver of your excess androgens, thus, PCOS. The same goes for the other 3 types - post-pill, inflammatory, and adrenal. If you want to improve your PCOS, you need to treat the underlying cause or driver of your symptoms first - any one of the four types.

Right now, the good news is that even if you don’t know your type, Inositol helps to reverse insulin resistance (the most common PCOS type) by helping to improve your insulin sensitivity. So with Inositol alone you should notice improvements. But it takes more than just this supplement to properly treat your PCOS. I always recommend, for optimal treatment, taking an additional anti-androgen supplement. By doing this, you’re directly addressing symptoms caused by androgen excess as well as the symptoms being driven by your PCOS type, for example, insulin resistance drives weight gain but inflammatory PCOS drives headaches and joint pain. Common signs and symptoms of androgen excess include facial hair, acne, irregular periods, and female pattern hair loss (hirsutism). Every woman with PCOS will most likely be experiencing these issues on top of the symptoms tied to whichever type she has - either IR, post-pill, inflammatory or adrenal. 

But what’s an example of an anti-androgen supplement?

A popular choice is Saw Palmetto. This natural supplement reduces higher levels of androgen hormones by blocking an enzyme that converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) - one of the most potent androgens, and a major proponent in the masculine-presenting symptoms of PCOS.

To summarise, let’s put it all together and go over the starting point checklist of what you should be doing to best treat your PCOS:

1. Make the necessary lifestyle changes: Diet and exercise is a must for treating PCOS, and in the long term, the most effective

2. Take a core supplement for the treatment of your PCOS type (Inositol is a near-perfect starting point, but I’m here if you need help with understanding your type).

3. Consider an additional anti-androgen supplement, such as Saw Palmetto
