PCOS and Dietary Tips

PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is a condition that affects women. It is caused by an imbalance of a woman’s sex hormones which may lead to:

The symptoms may vary from woman to woman. Some women have mild symptoms, while others are affected more severely by a wider range of symptoms.

PCOS affects up to 20 percent of women. The cause is not yet known. It may be genetic since women with PCOS are likely to have a mother or sister with PCOS. Women are usually diagnosed in their 20s or 30s, or sometimes when they are teenagers.

Get a diagnose first

PCOS can be confusing to a patient and is widely misunderstood and misdiagnosed. So the foremost step is to first seen your doctor, in case of suspicion and get the correct diagnose. Your doctor may prescribe a few tests like Ultrasound of the pelvis, and a complete Hormonal profile to confirm the diagnose and before starting you on medication.

Tips to deal with PCOS

Medical treatments aim to manage and reduce the symptoms or consequences of having PCOS. Medication alone has not been shown to be any better than healthy lifestyle changes (weight loss and exercise).
