This is How SUGAR Affects WOMEN Differently – Thomas DeLauer

We know sugar affects us all! It’s bad! We know. But does sugar have specific effects on women? From the Skin, Thyroid, to PCOS and more, here’s some very interesting studies looking at the effects of sugar on women. Let’s dive in and I’ll see you in the COMMENTS!!

Skin Aging

In a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, women who consumed more carbs, including added sugars, had a more aged/wrinkled appearance than women who consumed less

Specifically, researchers examined associations between nutrient intakes and skin aging in 4025 women (40-74 years)

A 17-g increase in fat and a 50-g increase in carbohydrate intakes increased the likelihood of a wrinkled appearance and skin atrophy

Sugar & Skin

Sugar can contribute to aging by increasing the breakdown of collagen fibers in a process called glycation – AGEs bind with collagen, which makes collagen fibers brittle

Sugar and Insulin Resistance

Sugar & PCOS – Study from the Child & Family Research Institute in Vancouver, Canada

Too much sugar can shut down a gene called SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) – SHBG controls the amount of testosterone and estrogen that’s available throughout the body.

If there’s less SHBG protein, then more testosterone and estrogen will be released throughout the body, which can contribute to PCOS

Insulin Resistance & PCOS

Insulin resistance is a key feature of both obese and lean PCOS. It occurs in 70-95% of people with obese PCOS and 30-75% of people with lean PCOS

High insulin is not just a symptom of PCOS—it is also a major driver of the condition High insulin can impair ovulation and cause the ovaries to make excess testosterone


Study – Cell Metabolism

The study, conducted in mice, shows that high levels of insulin, act on the pituitary gland, which is involved in regulating ovulation

Elevated levels of insulin prompt the pituitary gland to pump out large amounts of hormones that disrupt ovulation


Study – Human Reproduction

Researchers took cells from the uterus lining of fertile women and treated them with advanced glycation end products (AGEs) at exactly the level found in obese women.

AGEs reduced the capacity of placental cells to implant into the uterus lining, potentially preventing a successful pregnancy.
