Dedicated to helping you transform your health.
PCOS symptoms include, fatigue, weight gain, infertility, excess facial or body hair, moodiness, hormone imbalance, skin problems, hair loss, depression and even sleep apnea. Any one one of these symptoms can interfere with our daily lives. Women sufftering with PCOS often feel helpless and alone. At Insulite Laboratories we know first hand the frustration of being misdiagnosed and the disappointment of not being able to find the answers we need to support and manage symptoms of PCOS.
Recognized as the world leader in PCOS, Insulite Laboraties has knowledge, experience, and answers. We are completely committed to helping women, like you, with PCOS transform their health. With compassion, understanding, and proven scientific research, the Insulite Laboraties team of specialists is available to take you through the five elements of the Insulite PCOS System. Our promise is to guide you to every milestone on your journey to better health and to reduction in your PCOS symptoms.
The Insulite PCOS System is a scientifically-formulated, multi-layered plan to address the underlying cause of PCOS in order to better manage its many symptoms. The Insulite PCOS System will increase your body's ability to allow glucose to enter your cells, reducing overall insulin load - which is a major contributing factor to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
This comprehensive 5-element system will support your body's ability to
balance glucose and insulin levels, thus helping you lose weight. The Insulite PCOS System will also help you better manage or even reverse the symptoms of PCOS by decreasing estrogen and androgen hormones
and stimulating SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin) to regulate ovulation which is essential if you wish to become pregnant.

March 18, 2013 - Eat Some Carrots Today
PCOS Nutritionists have long recommended a diet rich in some fruits and vegetables with deep colors because they contain an abundance of nutrients called carotenoids. Vitamin A is vital for healthy eyes and skin. Beta carotene also contributes to strong teeth, plus healthy hair and a well-functioning reproductive system. more
The symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome vary widely from woman to woman. In addition to polycystic ovaries, symptoms can also include irregular or completely absent periods, hirsutism (excessive facial or body hair), Alopecia (male pattern hair loss), obesity, acne, skin tags (raisin-like growths on the skin), Acanthosis Nigricans (brown skin patches), exhaustion or lack of mental alertness, and decreased sex drive. Because the symptoms vary so widely and not all women display all the symptoms, doctors often misdiagnose PCOS. This became an issue of critical concern after a study in 2000 found that women suffering from PCOS have a higher risk of coronary heart disease.
Researchers discovered a link between Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and other metabolic conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, and high levels of LDL "bad" cholesterol, all of which are risk factors for coronary heart disease.
Studies have also shown an increased link between PCOS and atherosclerosis, which occurs when fatty deposits called plaque cling to the interior walls of the arteries, leading to blockages that can cause heart attacks or stroke. Not only do PCOS sufferers have higher rates of plaque buildup but those over 45 have thicker deposits of plaque.
Another report indicated that up to 40 percent of women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome have either impaired glucose tolerance or Type 2 Diabetes by the age of 40.
All these findings substantially raise the bar on the seriousness of PCOS, making it even more important that doctors correctly diagnose the condition and instruct their patients about Insulin Resistance.
PCOS And Insulin Resistance
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal imbalance linked to the way the body processes insulin after it has been produced by the pancreas to regulate blood sugar (glucose). Insulin Resistance, an underlying cause of PCOS, has many factors that contribute to its presence in the body. In essence, our environment and lifestyles have evolved too rapidly for our bodies to keep pace. We are still genetically "wired" to thrive on the entrenched habits of our ancestors, who consumed different, nutrient-rich foods and a diet low in carbohydrates and who sustained greater levels of movement and exercise. Some people may also have a genetic predisposition to Insulin Resistance, while others develop the condition through high stress and unhealthy lifestyles.
Over time, the above factors have damaged the complex ability of the body's cells to properly utilize insulin to convert glucose to energy. This process creates Insulin Resistance.
Insulin Resistance vastly reduces the insulin sensitivity of cells, which impairs the processing of glucose through the cell wall for conversion to energy. As a result, glucose remains in the blood stream, causing elevated levels of blood sugar, which are sent to the liver. Once there, the sugar is converted into fat and stored via the blood stream throughout the body. This process can lead to weight gain and obesity, key factors in creating PCOS, which is also referred to as Polycystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD.
Insulin Resistance can also cause PCOS is by raising insulin levels in the blood stream. Unhealthy lifestyles and genetic conditions can lead to the pancreas overproducing insulin. This excess insulin stimulates the ovaries to produce large amounts of the male hormone testosterone, which may prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg each month, thus causing infertility. High levels of insulin also increase the conversion of androgens (male hormones) to estrogens (female hormones), upsetting a delicate balance between the two and having a direct effect on weight gain and the formation of cystic follicles or ovarian cysts.

Insulin Resistance Is A Root Cause Of PCOS
Are you one of the millions of women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome who, no matter what they've tried, has failed to better manage or reverse the symptoms of this condition? It may not be due to lack of willpower. Instead, you could be Insulin Resistant, a root cause of PCOS. Scientists at the National Institutes of Health, Stanford University and other research centers have clearly identified the existence and effects of Insulin Resistance, a biochemical condition that can cause excessive weight gain and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
If you are among the 65% of the overweight population with Insulin Resistance, your ability to better manage or reverse your PCOS and lose weight may not have been within your control - until now.
This breakthrough in understanding the body's biochemistry remains relatively unknown, even though Insulin Resistance has reached epidemic proportions. Your doctor may not have explained the crucial link between Insulin Resistance, weight gain and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
You need to understand this link in order to better manage or reverse your condition. The Insulite PCOS System is the first scientifically-designed method that can help you do this by reversing Insulin Resistance and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
