As women, we find that with most of our symptoms, hormonal imbalances may be one of the root causes! Some of you may be familiar with this particular condition called PCOS, that also stands for polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Common symptoms of PCOS:

  • Menstrual irregularity
  • Problematic acne
  • Excess hair growth
  • Weight struggles
  • Infertility
  • Insulin resistance
  • Mood swings
  • Low libido

What May Cause PCOS?

There is no single answer for the cause of PCOS and it may be a different case for every woman due to their bio-individuality. Experts believe that many factors or genetics play a role. For example, there may be high levels of the male hormone androgen, which causes extra hair growth and acne. In another instance, your body’s cells may not respond to insulin, leading to insulin resistance, which may eventually cause type 2 diabetes. Many women may also deal with insulin resistance due to being overweight, low activity level, or poor diet. (2

How Does PCOS and Hashimotos Disease Share a Relationship?

It is being found that an increasing number of women with PCOS may have an association with Hashimotos disease. Both conditions share many common symptoms, risk factors and pathophysiological abnormalities. Studies have found that insulin resistance, high leptin levels, weight gain, and autoimmunity are shared between PCOS and Hashimotos disease. (1)

If you are in the stage of conceiving, it is important to test and correct your imbalances of the thyroid in relation to PCOS. Studies have evidently shown that women with PCOS have higher levels of TSH. Therefore, if you are dealing with PCOS you may be 3 times more likely to suffer from thyroiditis. (3).
