This is a Specialist Weight Loss Plan for young girls and women suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS is a medical condition affecting women’s ovaries. Worldwide, millions of women are affected by PCOS and often go about their lives with no knowledge of this fact. The primary cause of PCOS is a hormonal imbalance in the body, usually brought about by weight gain and insulin resistance.
High insulin levels are produced which trigger the male hormone testosterone and results in:
- Irregular periods
- Receding hairline
- Increased facial hair
- Increased body hair.
This leads to the sufferer having low self-esteem and being under-confident, which ultimately leads to further weight gain in a vicious cycle.
In the long-term, PCOS is known to cause:
- Coronary Artery Disease
- Type 2 Diabetes
PCOS is treated by a team of specialists with expert knowledge of endocrine (Hormonal) aspects of PCOS and medical weight management.
A comprehensive consultation by one of our specialists is followed by a 12-week intensive PCOS programme. You will have an offline and online support throughout the programme. You have the option of taking up to 12-months additional support following your programme.
