“We’re impending diagnosis and treatment from the Infertility perspective,” says Dr. Rimmi Singla (Senior Consultant Laparoscopic Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, IVF& Infertility Specialist)Director cum In charge –Ivy test Tube Baby Center, Ivy Hospital, Mohali.
An emphasis on nutrition is central since two-thirds of patients are overweight. “The importance is on a healthy diet — favoring vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean meats, decreasing sugar and junk foods — and working portion control as well as regular physical exercise,” Dr. Rimmi Singla says. It is now well documented that even in the nonappearance of obesity, women with PCOS are at increased risk of metabolic problems that can lead to infertility & cardiac disease. Thus, another significant factor of clinical care includes periodic screening for metabolic complications and age-appropriate treatment and preventive strategies. Unnecessary hair growth on face and body, carried on by excess androgen is a main concern for girls with PCOS. While moderating hormones through oral contraceptives, spironolactone, and metformin can decrease hair growth, they do not remove hair already on the face, chest, abdomen and back.
Woman/Girls with PCOS can suffer from low self-confidence as well as nervousness and depression due to the frustrating physical symptoms, excess weight, and long-term concerns for fertility and health.
To help minimal the effects of PCOS, try to:
- Maintain a healthy weight. Reduce loss can reduce insulin and androgen levels and may reinstate ovulation. Ask your doctor about a weight-control program, and meet frequently with a dietitian for help in reaching weight-loss goals.
- Eat less carbohydrates. Low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets might increase insulin levels. Your doctor can guide you about a low-carbohydrate diet if you have PCOS. Choose complex carbohydrates, which increase your blood sugar levels more slowly.
