Fibroids are an extremely common issue.  There are reports of up to 25 percent of women in their reproductive years having fibroids, but in reality, there are far more whose symptoms are undetectable or haven’t been reported.

Is sugar messing with your hormones?

Is sugar messing with your hormones?

Most will think that balancing blood sugar is just something diabetics do. Few realise that it's crucial for regulating female hormones as well. 

When our blood sugar dramatically rises and drops throughout the day we release insulin to try and compensate. But if we do this for a long time gradually we build up a tolerance to the insulin and this throws other hormones like oestrogen out of whack. This happens in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). A woman with PCOS may experience male pattern hair growth (hirsutism), irregular periods and infertility. They often struggle to maintain a healthy weight too.
