How it affects your healthy menstrual cycle?
Every woman from the age of puberty to menopause goes through the menstrual cycle. The imbalance of reproductive hormones alters the menstrual cycle. The polycystic ovarian syndrome is a condition in which the ovaries fail to produce fully developed healthy egg due to the overproduction of male sex hormones, androgens, that contributes to the creation of small cysts in ovaries. Women with PCOS have high levels of androgens that delays the process of menstruation and also the formation of small cysts in ovaries.
Doctors are yet to find out the exact reason for the cause of PCOS. Studies portray that women with PCOS have insulin resistance, which is considered as one of the reasons for the increased production of androgen.
What are your understanding of PCOS and its symptoms?
- Missed periods or irregular periods
- Ovaries with many cysts
- Excess body hair, including the chest, stomach, and back
- Weight gain, especially around the belly
- Dark or thick skin patches on the back of the neck
Does Dieting helpful in controlling PCOS?
Medical studies reveal that women with PCOS have a higher insulin level. Insulin is the hormone secreted by the pancreas, which plays a greater role in controlling blood glucose levels. Women with PCOS and insulin resistance try to produce a high level of insulin to control the blood sugar level. In such cases Ovaries tend to produce more male hormone androgens that lead to anovulation or change in the menstrual cycle. A low GI diet like whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy foods, and other unprocessed, low-carbohydrate foods are helpful in controlling the PCOS symptoms.
