THANK YOU PCOSA FOR THE HEALTH BYTE...


~
Here is this week’s Health Byte from the PCOSA … 5/1/04
~
When to See a Doctor About PCOS From The Age of 20 Onwards
~
Polycystic ovary syndrome is a long-term condition that can gradually affect females in different age groups from puberty right through to much later in life.
~
Symptoms of PCOS are often mistaken for another medical problem, which can make it difficult to know when to see your doctor. But early diagnosis and treatment of PCOS may help prevent serious related health complications such as pre- and type 2 diabetes and heart disease as well as reproductive and metabolic problems.
~
Taking a wait-and-see approach, often called watchful waiting, is not appropriate when PCOS is suspected.
~
If you are between 20 and 40 years old, consult your doctor if you have:
~
~ Menstrual cycles that are consistently less than 21 days apart or more than 35 days apart.
~ Regular menstrual cycles but you have been trying unsuccessfully to become pregnant for more than 12 months.
~ Vaginal bleeding that lasts more than 8 days. Watch out for large clots or excessive spotting.
~ Pelvic pain that lasts for more than 4 weeks.
~ Excessive hair growth or hair growing on the chest, back, belly or face. This PCOS-linked condition is known as hirsutism.
~ Any symptoms of diabetes, such as increased thirst and frequent urination (especially at night), unexplained increase in appetite, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, blurred vision or tingling or numbness in your hands or feet.
~ Skin problems such as acne, oily skin, dandruff, skin tags in the armpits or neck area, or dark skin patches (acanthosis nigricans) in skin folds or on the neck, groin or underarms.
~ Depression or mood swings. Many women have emotional problems related to the many physical symptoms of PCOS, such as excess hair, obesity or infertility.
~ Excess weight gain or upper body obesity (more abdominal fat than hip fat). This is also known as android obesity and is related to increased male hormone (testosterone) levels.
~
If you are older than 40, consult your doctor if you experience these additional symptoms which can be linked to PCOS :
~
~ Signs of heart disease, such as chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath, unusual levels of fatigue or high blood pressure (hypertension)
~
Who To See
~
Health professionals who can diagnose and treat PCOS may include:

~
~ Endocrinologists (pediatric or medical)
~ Reproductive endocrinologists
~ Gynecologists
~ Obstetricians
~ Family practice physicians
~ Nurse practitioners
~ Physician assistants
~ Internists
~ Registered dietitians

PCOS Lady:
I am happy to post this byte and to see the added info with listed symptoms… Mentioning the added medical people and dietitians that can diagnose PCOS is wonderful!
~
When you see your doctor, ask to be tested for Celiac Disease as well, especially if stool is loose for days or always… My DO said that is an automatic dx for Celiac…

“Welcome” to my PCOS blog…

~
I’m Christie, the PCOS Lady…
~
My personal PCOS crusade is taking on an extensive journey for all of “YOU” to learn from!
I feel it’s important to post all i can relating to PCOS… We all know the frustrations we
are faced with when diagnosed with PCOS… Not being properly diagnosed is another issue…
Many other conditions are covered… Lifestyle changes i touch on…
~
PCOS blogs are out there… I feel many cover the same things… We all have our stories, experiences, treatments, etc… making up our PCOS Journey!
~
Being a unique person, i have created my blog(s) in a unique way… I can be seen all over the net passing the PCOS word around!
~
~ Read through all my postings:
~ … *My PCOS Symptoms List is extensive…
~ … *Celiac Disease Symptoms are overlapping numerous medical conditions…
~
~ In General:
~ … FYI my original blog in 2011 had 1002 medical sites attached to it… Mayo Clinic was one, i have the the list… I was highly flattered when i saw the list!
~ … You will be well informed… Truth, honesty and the right to know drives me…
~ … I love research, 1st hand experiences, the internet, forums, blogs, groups…
~ … Doctors and medical personnel, most are lacking the truths and knowledge on many medical issues… PCOS especially, hmm!
~ … My wish: Same page(symptoms) on PCOS for all the medical world!
~ … Cause we know treatments are a “hit & miss” with each woman… No one thing works for all!
~
~ “Me”
~ … “I hate it when good people are done wrong!”
~ … As an Advocate, i have proven some medical professionals wrong and have gotten diagnosis corrected on friends of mine… I have experienced alot!
~ … Malpractice is happening around you! Be aware…
~ … Western medicine, i have been losing confidence in it over the years… Today i consider all the options out there that fit my medical conditions and diagnosed ailments….
~ … I learned at 18 a doctor must keep up with the new medical things from Europe yearly… If they don’t, your doctor is stuck in “yesteryear” literally! *Seek second opinions!!
~ … I am posting scenarios slowly in my blogs…
~ … A doctor’s oath includes “First do no harm…”
Fact: The oath has changed three times over the years…
~
My motto:
Know your symptoms…
Know your treatments and options…
and
YOU know your body!
YOU are in control of your body!
Knowledge is POWER!

~
My hope is you are well informed, enlightened and educated on PCOS , etc… to get the diagnosis, treatments and can maintain your medical conditions for a happy healthy life!
~
A “thank you” to the sites i use and list, blogs, words and pictures i have gathered and use in posts… Credits are through posting your links, etc…

Cleanse List

Posted in CLEANSE, Fibromyalgia, MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 1:04 am by PCOSLady

CLEANSING TIME… EVERY 3 YEARS “ONLY”…

~
Cleanse List
~
per Dr Glenn Gero
of
http://www.holisticnaturopath.com
~
Quote: “Wellness is NOT A PART TIME JOB!” by Dr. Glenn Gero
~
~ Colon Cleanse
~ Heavy Metal Cleanse
~ Candida Cleanse
~ Kidney & Gall Bladder Cleanse
~ Liver Cleanse
~ Parasite Cleanse
~
Notes:
– Repeat these every 3 years…
~
* F.Y.I:
Cleanses:
~ Cleanses should only be done every three (3) years… Any sooner you destroy the good bacteria, etc… in your body… More medical problems are then possibly created!
~
Yeast:
~ Candida Cleanse is important if you have taken antibiotics… They leave a yeast residue in you which in years may flare up through your whole body! You will feel fatigued which progresses to lethargic then may end in death… Yeast clogs your liver, etc…
~
Hair Sample:
~ A hair strand test will reveal your mineral levels and many other things in you!
~
PCOS Lady highly suggests you have the hair strand tested by a naturalist or homeopathic doctor… You will know numerous things about “YOU”! It shows all mineral levels you have and what is needed, etc…
~
Bald and no hair, i am waiting on a friend to find out what he needs to do, etc…

http://drlwilson.com/do%20hair%20analysis.htm
~ Dr L Wilson … Find a Doctor near you for hair analysis…
~ I called a doctor near me and was told $149, 2 CD’s and a detailed report… She explained all your minerals have to be in line… Then you will not get sick!
* Hmmm! Doctors rarely ever check all your minerals and vitamins!!!!!
