  • Many with PCOS can develop insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes

Women with imbalanced reproductive hormones, such as too much androgen, may develop polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which interferes with ovulation and fertility. Many with PCOS, especially those who are overweight, can also develop insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

In this review of 12 vitamin E- PCOS studies, participants who took vitamin E saw declines in insulin resistance, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol levels; increases in follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and decreases in luteinizing hormone (LH). Low FSH levels contribute to poor egg development, and high LH levels stimulate androgen production. Doctors concluded vitamin E can improve metabolic and hormonal factors in women with PCOS.
