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. Tips to deal with PCOS
Choose better fats: limit foods that contain saturated and trans fats. instead of these choose smaller amounts of healthy unsaturated fats, which are found in vegetable oils like canola and olive oil, avocado and
Increase Fibre: Eating more fibre can help maintain blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol
Enjoy Protein: Make sure that you have some protein at every meal and snack. Instead of always choosing meat, try chicken, turkey or fish. Try vegetarian options such as legumes, soy or a quarter cup of nuts or seeds. Milk and low fat yogurt are also good sources of protein.
Foods to Limit: Choose fewer foods that are high in sugar, salt ,refined flour and fat such as : white rice, pasta or bread, baked goods ,regular soda, candy &chocolate and salty snacks.
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).
