Liver disease is usually caused by obesity, stress, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. If not treated, the disease can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

These cysts can interfere, causing pain, infection, damage the uterus, and female fertility. Women with PCOS are also more susceptible to weight gain, abnormal periods, acne and excess hair growth.

The disease is caused by age, race (Caucasian and Asia have the highest risk of developing the disease), the consumption of foods low in calcium or vitamin D, cigarette smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption. However, osteoporosis can be prevented.


This disease affects approximately 50 percent more women than men. Depression mainly occurs due to hormonal changes (eg, postpartum depression that developed post-pregnancy) or lifestyle factors (feeling detached from loved ones, family history of disease, or drug abuse).
