Women suffering from the ovarian cyst syndrome or PCOS, which is also known as Stein-Leventhal Syndrome or as the Polycystic Ovarian Disease show symptoms that include very irregular or zero menstrual periods, obesity, acne, excessive hair growth on the face or other areas, hair loss in scalp, infertility, high cholesterol level, elevated blood pressure, higher blood sugar level and insulin resistance. It needs to be however mentioned here that not all women will show all the symptoms.
Researchers now believe that these abnormalities somehow resemble with those that are manifest in Type-II Diabetes, and so medications used to treat Type-II Diabetes should also work for PCOS. Can cyst removal be achieved through this? Let us investigate.
Metformin (Glucophage) appears to be the most common medication that is used to treat Type -II Diabetes that affects the action of insulin. Thus, it has been tested with the symptoms of PCOS and found to be quite effective.
However, a newer Type-II Diabetes medication called Byetta (exenatide) has proved to be very effective both in Type-II Diabetes and PCOS. So it is expected that this medication will be a front runner in fighting both these conditions.
However, Byetta is not recommended for women who are in the process of conceiving because of risks of birth defects. But conventional medical practitioners feel that otherwise, Byetta is quite suitable for all women who are suffering from PCOS.
Though there are conventional cures for ovarian cyst and natural treatments for PCOS, but the fact is, holistic remedies works best always. While most treatments treat just the symptoms, holistic remedies treat the root causes and get rid of them for good.
