The basic differentiation that happens on basis of one’s physical appearance is to a large extent determined by the role-play of hormones inside his or her body. Hormones are chemical secretions inside the body that help govern basic bodily functions the function of insulin is to combat diabetes and the function of hormones like dopamine and serotonin is to reduce stress and generate a feeling of security.
Such hormones are produced by Hormone producing glands which are namely the ovaries, the pancreas and the kidneys which help synthesise Vitamin D in the body. The glands that are responsible for the hormones related to physical aspects and sexuality of the person in females are the ovaries that form the reproductive system.
But the ovaries like any other part of the body are prone to deterioration but the deterioration of kidneys only begins after the age of 30 posts when the quality of the ova released begins to be affected secondly the person the ovaries thus generated and secrete hormones that help determine the physical characteristics of a lady’s persona.
The deterioration of the ovaries just like any other organ of the body is largely governed by changes in lifestyle and very little on the process of ageing. People need to understand that the possible problems that exist with the ovaries are not just limited to PCOS, uterine polyps, Uterine blockage etc.
There is something known as Endometriosis which is very commonly increasing among women of reproductive age. Let us understand in detail what endometriosis means.
WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS???
“Endometriosis is defined as the growth of the epithelial tissue outside the walls of the uterus the major symptoms of which include lower pelvic pain and also menstruation which is not limited to a specified period” explained a well-known gynaecologist in Ludhiana.
The other major symptoms of endometriosis include pain during the process of copulation, abdominal back pain and menstrual cramps.
But not many people are aware that endometriosis is not just limited to the welfare of the ovaries, it extends and affects the other bodily functions of the gastrointestinal tract and causes problems with excretion and assimilation. Thus it is very important to diagnose any possible symptoms of endometriosis in the initial stages to prevent aggravation and causing problems to other organs of the body because everything in the body is interconnected.
Let us understand how endometriosis affects the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract
ENDOMETRIOSIS AND ITS IMPACT ON THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT
- “A case study was conducted by a well-known gastro doctor in Ludhiana who clearly explains that the number of gastrointestinal bloating and abdominal pain problems have been more rampant and more vividly seen among the patients of endometriosis the basic reason being endometriosis leads to prostaglandin release that leads to inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, as a result of which the bowel walls begins to thicken and hinder the function of assimilation in the body, which in turn opens the ways for undigested food materials, constipation, gas, acidity etc.
- The only way to identify endometriosis is by going for a CT scan whenever the earliest symptoms of the disease are notified as mentioned above.
