There are four(4) different types of PCOS

  1)  Insulin-Resistant PCOS

The moment the cells in your muscles, fat and liver stops responding very well to insulin, it leads to an increase in the level of blood sugar and causes the pancreas to pump out even more insulin. This is known as insulin resistance.

A high level of insulin in circulation increases the production of androgen in women. Androgen will interfere with ovulation to cause all the symptoms of PCOS listed above.

Other symptoms peculiar to this type of PCOS are: 

  • Fatigue,
  • brain fog,
  • frequent thirst and urination
  • weight gain around the middle

To manage insulin-resistant PCOS,

  1. Replace a high carb with a low-carb diet that is rich in healthy fats and quality proteins.

  3. Take a supplement with nutrient like magnesium, inositol etc. to support insulin sensitivity.
