Polycystic Ovarian Syndrom (PCOS) Among Indian Women

There is an alarming rise in the numbers of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) among Indian women aged 18 – 44 years.

The condition greatly impacts their quality of life and can also lead to long-term conditions like diabetes and hypertension.  Ironically, most of the women are neither educated nor aware about its management.

About 80% of women with PCOS are overweight or obese due to hormonal imbalance. Right medical and lifestyle intervention can greatly help in weight loss and management of PCOS symptoms.

The hallmark of PCOS is nutritional deficiencies. For example, 67-85% of women with PCOS were observed to have vitamin D deficiency. Supplementing with vitamin D has shown to improve menstrual regularity and insulin resistance.

Similarly, incorporating vitamin C-rich food like amla, lemon, and hibiscus helps to produce oestrogen. Functional food like hibiscus flower helps to regulate estrogen and progesterone balance, which is needed for regular menstrual periods.

Obesity is one of the common offenders making PCOS symptoms worse. Studies have shown that even a 5% weight reduction with right diet, moderate exercise, and behavioral therapy can trigger body changes that improve the conditions.

Early diagnosis and comprehensive nutritional and medical treatment is essential to control the symptoms of PCOS. This results in improved quality of life and reduced risk of long-term complications.

      Hello Mrs. Prisca,

      As you are a medical professional yourself, you would be aware that a PCOS patient will have a complex interplay of hormones which makes weight loss difficult. Even smallest aberration in the hormones levels could skew the chances of weight loss.

      We would not like to recommend any particular program as such but would request you to drop by into any of the Truweight centres and speak to one of our Nutrition coaches who specialises in weight loss among PCOS patient. You could ask away all your doubts and only when you are satisfied can you proceed with the plans.
