My girlfriend has PCOS and although she has always had a little bit of spider veins on her thighs (since she was a teenager or so), she now started having new ones on her derriere. Could it be related to PCOS? Insulin resistance? Does any know how to get rid of them? As you can imagine, this is very hard for her already poor body image.
She is 28 yo and is 100% low-carb Paleo for 1.5 years. She is a bit heavier that she would like, but she is in the upper range of the healthy BMI (5'8", 160ish lbs). SHe carries most of her extra weight on her hips and thighs (pear shape).
Any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
