Hormomal obesity

I'd been suffering from PCOD from last 3 years. I'd been 58kgs with a height of 5ft 4inch 4 years ago and now I'm 97 kgs. I'm at my highest weight I've ever been in. M I have jawline acne and the area above my forehead is becoming bald. I'm 20 but I'm starting to look like 40. Please help me figure out how can completely get rid of these symptoms and also please tell me which exercises I can do in the comfort of my home. I hadn't been sexually active since a year and I did got my periods after my last experience which means I'm not at all pregnant or anything as such. But after my last periods which was 6 months ago. I still haven't got my periods back. Please tell me what can I do to bring them back.

You need a weight loss to minimize these symptoms. You have almost gained 39kgs in 4 years. Diet and exercise is key for weight loss but at this stage certain medication like metformin which increase insulin sensitivity and helps in weight loss can be started but Before starting such medication you need to approach local diabetologist or endocrinologist for detailed examination and investigation.

Hello, PCOD is a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOD also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne.Weight gain and trouble losing weight.Extra hair on the face and body.Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp.Irregular periods. Often women with PCOD have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOD have trouble getting pregnant(infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOD . Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do.Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.Most women who have PCOD can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and reduces the Android symptoms.
