During her live talk, Dr. Rimmy SIngla said that PCOS is seen more often in Asian and north African women. Lifestyle patterns such as the way we eat and exercise can make the condition better or worse. INCREASE IN WEIGHT IS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT RISK FACTOR OF THIS CONDITION – which means that it can lead to this condition. This is a vicious cycle- with pcos causing weight gain and weight gain causing pcos. Due to this reason, women suffering from pcos are often advised by their doctors to lose weight.
Diet and exercise are important parts of managing PCOS. This is because young women with PCOS often have higher levels of insulin (a hormone) in their blood, and many have trouble maintaining a healthy weight. Knowing the right foods to eat as well as the kinds of food to limit can improve the way you feel. It will also help you lose weight. Eating well, staying active, and maintaining a healthy weight (or losing even a small amount of weight if you’re overweight) can improve PCOS symptoms.
