PCOSAA JOINS THE GLOBAL #GIVINGTUESDAY MOVEMENT PLEDGES TO RAISE PUBLIC AWARENESS ABOUT POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME (PCOS).
SEATTLE, WA, USA, November 18, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — USA – November 18, 2017 — PCOS Awareness Association (PCOSAA) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #PCOSAAGivingTuesday… Occurring this year on November 28, #PCOSAAGivingTuesday will be held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to millions of women who suffer with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is an endocrine disorder that affects over 7 million women in the United States, with half not even being aware the disorder exists. PCOSAA has tackled the problem head on by raising awareness of this disorder worldwide, providing educational and support services to help women understand what the disorder is and how it can be treated. The Association also provides support for women diagnosed with PCOS to help them overcome the syndrome and decrease the impact of its associated health problems.
“PCOS is an endocrine disorder that affects over 7 million women in the US,” commented Louise Chang, MD. “That is more than the number of people diagnosed with breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus combined.”
According to experts, symptoms of PCOS vary with every woman, but can include: irregular and/or missing menstrual periods, infertility, dandruff, oily/acne skin issues, unexpected weight gain, thinning hair, dark patches on skin and pelvic pain. With a lack of awareness of PCOS many medical practitioners completely miss the warning signs and women go untreated, which can lead to more serious health problems like heart disease and diabetes developing.
