Why Does PCOS Causes Weight Gain And Belly Fat?

PCOS makes it more difficult for the body to use the hormone insulin, which normally helps convert sugars and starches from foods we consume into energy. This condition is called insulin resistance and it can cause insulin and sugar/glucose to build up in the bloodstream.

High insulin levels increase the production of androgens, namely "male hormones". High angrogen levels lead to symtoms such as body hair growth, acne, irregular periods and weight gain. Since the weight gain is triggered by androgens(hormones that are found in males, as well as females but in moderation), it is typically in the abdomen, which is where men tend to carry weight. So, instead of having the typical pear shape, women with PCOS have more of an apple shaped body.


Coming back to abdominal fat, it is the  most dangerous kind of fat. That’s because it is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and other health conditions. Losing weight not only cuts your risk for many diseases, it can also make you feel better.As the most common hormonal problem, PCOS sets up a hormonal chaos that encourages belly fat weight gain.
