BOULDER, CO, September 13, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Insulite Labs, a leader in PCOS education and treatment, encourages women to take a self test as a first step in learning about the condition, PCOS symptoms and what they can do to improve their health. Understanding the power of self awareness and education, the organization plans to spend PCOS Awareness Month educating the millions of women who unknowingly have polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Pinpointing this condition is difficult, especially for women who may not even be aware of it," commented Insulite Labs spokesperson Katie Humphrey. "Educating women about PCOS is our priority; because once they are educated they can seek the necessary treatment and reverse the condition before it takes over their lives."
As a part of their educational online assessment, women easily answer questions about their symptoms to determine if they are at risk for PCOS. Symptoms of the condition include missing or irregular menstrual periods, excessive hair growth on the abdomen, chin, or neck, skin tags, infertility, thinning hair and mood swings. Women do not need to provide any personally identifiable information to take the self-assessment as its goal is to encourage women to take the next step in seeking help. Women can take the self-assessment to further investigate their concerns at http://www.pcos.insulitelabs.com/PCOS-Self-Test.php.
Insulite Labs provides ongoing education and support for women who have or may have polycystic ovarian disorder, a condition that often develops in women who are overweight, have a hormone imbalance and, most commonly, suffer from insulin resistance. PCOS is a syndrome of insulin resistance, the precursor to type 2 diabetes. The organization strives to educate women on the steps they can take now to reduce risks and focuses mainly on natural lifestyle changes that encourage health improvement.
"Our mission has always been focused on supporting women suffering with PCOS," explained J.W. Wilson, Managing Director of Insulite Labs. The condition, which is the most common cause of infertility in women in the United States may be treatable with reversal of insulin resistance. However, many women do not know they suffer from this underlying condition and therefore never see improvement.
Individuals taking the self-test for PCOS are welcomed to join the Inspiration Hour Community (Learn More Get Inspired) program as a way to further educate and work towards improving this limiting condition. "Awareness and education is your best ally in controlling your symptoms with PCOS, explained Wilson. Through PCOS Awareness Month, Insulite Labs helps to encourage women to take that first step in getting a diagnosis for their symptoms.
