Are slim women more likely to have endometriosis than obese women?
Endometriosis is a condition in which cells that are normally found inside the uterus (endometrial cells) are found growing outside of the uterus. According to the Endometriosis Foundation of America, there are more than 176 million women and girls worldwide who suffer from endometriosis. But still now research has found the exact causes of endometriosis. Recently a new study shows that slim women are more likely to have endometriosis than women who are morbidly obese.
Females with a current BMI in the low normal range (8.5 to 22.4 kg/m2) have a 39% higher risk of endometriosis than morbidly obese females (BMI greater than 40 kg/m2), according to the research which was published in the journal Human Reproduction. It is found that those who with low normal BMI at that age of 18 had a 41% higher risk of endometriosis than those were morbidly obese. As for the rate of endometriosis, Females who had been trying to conceive for over a year were notably higher among the women with a low normal BMI than morbidly obese (62%). 
The results of the research show that there is a strong association between endometriosis and BMI; however, it does not mean that low BMI could lead to endometriosis. Although the mechanisms behind the relation between BMI and endometriosis risk are not known, BMI at a younger age might have an impact on a person's well-being later in life, because it can have an influence on other illnesses. Additionally, obese women are more frequently diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It could decrease or slow the growth of endometrial lesions by affecting menstruation and hormones.
The study does not suggest that the morbidly obese women are healthier than the lean women in some way, though they have lower risk of endometriosis. It is more likely that these factors such as endometriosis are related to infertility, which is more common among the very obese, are linked to the reduced risk of endometriosis. Women with a low BMI, both currently and at age 18, have a greater risk of developing endometriosis. The association remains stronger in infertile women, but is present in all women regardless of fertility status.
There are about one in 10 women is affected by endometriosis at their reproductive age. Luckily laparoscopy is not the last straw for them. An herbal medicine named Fuyan pill have been proven effective on treating endometriosis. Herbs in this pill have functions of clearing away heat (fire), promoting Qi and blood circulation, dissolving stasis, dissipating adhesions and blockage. Thus it could cure endometriosis completely.
