INCREASE IN INSULIN RESISTANCE RISKS CVD – (05-09-02)By
Menstrual Cycle Irregularity and Risk for Future CVD
While this is not a big surprise if you understand physiology, the irony comes in with common medical management of menstrual problems. To my knowledge, I have come across two major treatment approaches: birth control pill and hysterectomy. While the first may seem a little more benign, consider this…the BCP is known to increase insulin resistance and thereby increase risk of CVD. Still sound like a good approach? Instead, try supporting hepatic detox of estrogens, fixing constipation (which encourages resorption of conjugated estrogens that were on their way “out”), avoid xenoestrogen exposure and using progesterone cream. In contrast to the BCP, this approach would actually lower risk of CVD.
