Within this video, we’re going to speak about PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and why insulin might be behind it. 

Polycystic ovarian syndrome or polycystic ovarian disease is a disorder that happens in females, that involves getting an excessive amount of androgen. Typically males convey more androgens and/or testosterone. Women do naturally have androgens, although not in the same levels. High amounts of androgens in females may cause polycystic ovarian syndrome signs and symptoms.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome signs and symptoms:

• Hair on your face

• More hair

• Acne

• Hair thinning (a recessed hairline)

• Much deeper voice 

• Irregular cycles or no cycles 

• Cysts around the ovaries 

In my opinion insulin causes PCOS with two different mechanisms. 

Mechanism #1 

The first involves a hormone in the pituitary known as LH. Whenever you increase insulin, you’re getting an increase in LH, which will come lower in the pituitary towards the ovaries. Once this substance connects using the ovaries, it triggers this certain cell known as a theca cell, which increases androgens.

Mechanism #2

There’s a buffering mechanism inside your liver known as SHGB. This compound buffers androgens. Whenever you increase insulin, you decrease this compound. Then, you receive less buffering and much more free testosterone.
