PCOS and Insomnia… and How You Can Get a Good Night’s Sleep Now!

By Adalhard Subscribe to RSS | February 22nd 2012 | Views:

Living with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is difficult for any number of reasons. There are, of course, the most well-known and most heartbreaking symptoms of the condition—namely, the fact that it can prevent women from conceiving a child. There are also the more embarrassing and worrisome symptoms of hair loss, hair growth, acne, and skin tags. And of course, there is the fact that the condition is also accompanied by excessive weight gain, even obesity.

But there are other, serious effects of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) that often go unnamed. That includes the fact that many women with this condition

have a hard time sleeping at night; indeed, sleep disruptions are one of the most frustrating and maddening effects of this condition. But what’s the connection, and what can be done about it? To understand that, we first need to understand precisely what lies at the heart of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).

Insulin and Zzzzzzzzzz’s

It is not, contrary to what its name might suggest, a primarily ovarian problem; on the contrary, it is typically rooted in Insulin Resistance. This is a condition in which the body loses its ability to fully absorb glucose from the blood stream. It can create an imbalance of hormones that leads to all the effects mentioned above.

In particular, it can lead to insomnia. The connection between PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and restless, sleepless nights has everything to do with the obesity and overall unhealthiness that go hand in hand with the condition of Insulin Resistance—so it only stands to reason that the way to get your good, restful nights of sleep back is to boost your insulin sensitivity

Reversing Insulin Resistance

So how do you reverse Insulin Resistance? There are a couple of important lifestyle changes you need to make. The first is increasing the amount of exercise you get; scientists have found that physical activity can boost your insulin production! Another step is to start eating a more nutritious diet, combating the obesity or general unhealthiness that lies at the heart of your condition. By doing these things, you can not only treat your symptoms and kick Insulin Resistance, but you can also start sleeping better at night!

The other thing a women suffering Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) might do is to look into the Insulite Labs supplements that are available. In particular, the PCOS System offers hormone-balancing effects that have been scientifically calibrated to reverse the condition. That means there is very much hope here, and, for women who properly educate themselves and take the precautions necessary to thwart the effects of the condition, no reason why PCOS has to lead to insomnia problems.

Insulite Laboratories, a Boulder, Colorado USA based company, is committed to reversing Insulin Resistance - a potentially dangerous imbalance of blood glucose and insulin. Scientific research has revealed that this disorder can be a primary cause of excess weight gain and obesity, plus Pre-Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Insulin Resistance can also underlie the cluster of increased risk factors for cardiovascular damage called Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) as well as PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) - a major source of serious diseases as well as heartbreaking female infertility.

Recognizing that there are millions of people who need this kind of systematic approach to reversing insulin resistance, Insulite Laboratories has, developed systems to address the underlying causes of Metabolic Syndrome, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Excess Weight/Obesity, Pre-Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.
