Indian women given advice for countering rising PCOS risk
28 October 2013An Indian news network has published an article designed to reassure the small but significant proportion of women worldwide who suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Zee News reports that incidences of the condition are rising in India, particularly among younger women, and that it can affect their chances of having children. In turn, the report says, the condition is closely related to incidences of obesity, with between 40 and 60 per cent of women with PCOS also considered obese. Caused by an imbalance of hormones, the condition manifests itself with the growth of fluid-filled cysts on the ovaries. About one in nine Indian women of child-bearing age are likely to develop the condition, latest research suggests. Extensive worldwide research has shown that cosmetic treatments can help alleviate many of the syndrome's most common effects, with Laser Hair Removal especially helpful in treating commonly-seen increased hair growth on the face, which is often embarrassing for the sufferer. As with all patients who undergo Laser Hair Removal, using the treatment in conjunction with applying UV protection to the skin, is proven to help prolong the benefits.
