Abdominal fat distribution and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a prevalent female hormonal disease.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a prevalent hormonal condition that affects born women. PCOS is characterized by irregular menstrual periods, elevated androgen levels, and polycystic ovaries. PCOS is thought to be caused by hereditary and environmental factors.

PCOS commonly affects belly fat, especially visceral fat. Some critical points of abdominal fat distribution and PCOS:

Insulin Resistance: Many PCOS patients have insulin resistance. Insulin resistance develops when cells become less receptive to insulin, which regulates blood sugar. Visceral fat can accumulate due to insulin resistance and high blood insulin levels.

Hyperandrogenism: PCOS causes elevated testosterone levels. High androgen levels can cause fat distribution abnormalities and abdominal obesity.

Metabolic syndrome, which includes insulin resistance, elevated blood pressure, and abnormal lipid profiles, is commonly associated with central or abdominal obesity. 

Visceral fat releases inflammatory chemicals during metabolism. Chronic inflammation in PCOS may cause insulin resistance and other metabolic issues.

PCOS's insulin resistance and central obesity raise the risk of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle therapies may help PCOS women lose weight and improve insulin sensitivity.

Gynecologists, endocrinologists, and nutritionists can help PCOS patients create a specific hormonal and metabolic therapy plan. PCOS and its symptoms may be managed with lifestyle modifications, medication, and regular monitoring.
