Anti Aging sciences can be a challenging career when helping women going through
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Medical statistics show that PMS is reported by up to 85% of women of reproductive age.
Can anything be done to help these women? Here’s what current science tells us:
Factors negatively affecting PMS are:
- Prolactin levels are elevated (take Vitamin B6)
- Triglyceride levels are elevated (cut sugar consumption and eat a low fat diet)
- HDL levels are low (eat fish, flax, nuts, legumes, beans)
- Hydroxyprogesterone levels are low (low fat diet – less than 15% of calories from fat)
- BMI is higher (lose weight via low fat diet)
Remember this: The newest models for predicting horrible PMS cycles show that, after adjusting for age and body mass index (BMI), linear regression analysis demonstrated that for every one unit increase in PMS score there was 12% rise in the probability of having metabolic syndrome. Code = lose weight or your PMS is worse!
The conclusion can only be that those women who have the lowest BMI have the least PMS symptoms.
Yours in Health!
