    It has been eight months since my last post.

    I have not had a binge for almost three months.

    It was very difficult at first but every successful day

    made me less obsessed and less likely to binge.

    I recently got some results from my doctor and these

    results have been a real eye opener for me.

    I have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

    I basically have small cysts covering my ovaries.

    This syndrome causes hormone levels to jumps all over

    the place, insulin, blood sugar is up and down, depression, periods are TOTALLY

    irregular,excessive hair growth, causes diabetes in the future, and is most

    often found in obese women.

    Now, I am an exception as I am not obese. I am 5’7 and 112 lbs.

    However, many women who suffer from PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

    are binge-eaters. PCOS is very often connected with binge eating disorder.

    I have probably had PCOS for the past six years because my periods have been irregular for that long… they have been once every 2 to 3 months, i then didn’t have my period for a year, now I have my period twice a month…

    Nobody has known about my binge eating problems. I was always ashamed of myself.

    Now I know that it was not entirely my own lack of will power but it was and still could be caused by irregular insulin levels and depression due to PCOS.

    I wanted to share this with you all to encourage you to either get tested or if you

    do have PCOS, I hope this will shed some light on your situation! it is not your

    fault and it will be harder to shake off the binge eating disorder if you

    are dealing with PCOS. But it is possible!

    I am also happy because now I may venture to tell me parents the truth about my

    binge eating. I now have an explanation, and excuse, if you will. It has to do

    with my irregular hormones, blood levels, depression, and metabolic rate.

    Please write if you are in the same situation as me!

    I will also post this in the blog entitled “MY LIFE” but I wanted to create a separate

    blog for this to make sure that people would read this particular post! I will try to post in “MY LIFE” more regularly and give tips to how I have battled and am currently still battling Binge Eating Disorder. I am far from cured but I am getting there.

    As for the PCOS, I will be trying to alter my diet; I am already a vegetarian but I must cut out wheat/gluten products, dairy, and processed sugars. I saw a very encouraging video on youtube about a woman who cured her PCOS with a raw food diet.

    I don’t have the verve to undertake a completely raw food diet but I will definitely eliminate wheat products, dairy and processed sugars.

    THE VIDEO I WATCHED WAS: “How I Cured PCOS Naturally, Ep146″

    I encourage you to look it up if you are a PCOS sufferrer!

    wow, thanks for posting this… I’m going to go see my doctor right away because i did a little more research and I have a lot of the symptoms, including the irregular periods, weight gain around the waist, and acne (although 7 months of accutane kind of fixed that one.) I really hope I don’t have this, and I’m so sorry that you do, but I’m glad you found out and now you can find ways to manage it without blaming yourself for your hormones :)
