I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a hormone imbalance that can result in irregular periods and increases your risk for diabetes. I usually take medication to control it, but lately I've stopped (with my doctor's approval) and I've been symptom-free! My physician credits my improved condition to my weight loss. He said that getting into a healthy BMI can regulate your hormones naturally. Up until now I've been focusing on the way exercising and eating right has changed my appearance, but now I realize just how much it's impacting my health.
