‘EB’ Dabarkads Inka Magnaye umaming may PCOS; inaatake ng anxiety at depression

SA EDAD na 18 ay na-diagnose na ang internet sensation at TV host na si Inka Magnaye ng polycystic ovarian syndrome o PCOS.

Ayon sa “Eat Bulaga” Dabarkads na nagsisilbing host ng “Bida Voice: Shy Singing Competition”, matindi rin ang mga pinagdaanan niyang hirap at sakripisyo noong tamaan siya ng PCOS.

Ibinahagi ni Inka sa publiko ang tungkol dito para makatulong at magsilbing inspirasyon sa mga babaeng may PCOS pero hindi pa sila aware dahil sa kakulangan sa kaalaman.

Sa kanyang Instagram post, isinalaysay ni Inka ang naging experience niya sa pakikipaglaban sa PCOS at kung paano nag-iba-iba ang symptoms nito mula noong teenager siya hanggang sa sumapit siya ng edad 20.

“When I was a teenager, not one part of my face was free of acne. I even had it all over my back. Also, I had heavy and painful periods that lasted 7-10 days, that would leave me bed-ridden for a week. But on the flip side, I could eat whatever I wanted and not gain a pound.

“However, following my emergency surgery in my early 20s after a cyst in my ovary ruptured and bled, my symptoms changed.

“My periods are now painless and last 3 days max, but I experience debilitating migraines. I have little to no acne, but my sensitivity to carbs makes me bloat if I don’t workout and follow a relatively low carb diet. 

“My dips into depression and anxiety are also more frequent now. And the mood swings,” pahayag ng  “Eat Bulaga” Dabarkads.

Pagpapatuloy pa niya, “All my symptoms get worse with weight gain (including bleeding out of my cycle and sharp pains in my ovaries), so staying fit is absolutely necessary for my mental and physical wellness.”

Ayon pa kay Inka, mahalagang malaman ng bawat babae ang tungkol sa health condition na ito dahil may ilang nagkakaroon ng PCOS ay hindi aware na meron na pala sila nito.

“Still. I’m on the ‘lucky’ side of this condition. So many women live with most if not all the symptoms. And so many of them don’t even know they have PCOS. 

“In one study, up to 70% of women with PCOS are undiagnosed. This is why it’s so important to raise awareness about it because one of the reasons why I can manage my PCOS so well is because we caught it early on.

“PCOS is difficult but there are ways. And if you have it, I just want you to know I understand! There are days sometimes when it’s just really hard, especially when our hormones go crazier than what our ‘normal’ is. Just stay healthy so you can give yourself the best fighting chance!” pahayag pa ni Inka.
