PCOS DIETARY MANAGEMENT Healing Hospital Chandigarh



PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is one of the most common health conditions seen in a majority of women nowadays. It causes hormonal imbalance in the body and also affects metabolism in a negative way. PCOS can lead to further health complications such as diabetes, heart problems, mental health issues and even an increased chance of endometrial cancer.



Diet is one of the important criterion for controlling the symptoms of PCOS. Most of the women suffering from PCOS have insulin resistance. Since insulin has a major part to play in PCOS, it is imperative to manage your sugar levels well. If this step is not taken at the right time, you have a risk of developing diabetes by the age of 40.
