Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome affects as many as 10% of women. 75% of women diagnosed with PCOS are thought to have problems with infertility.

Symptoms of PCOS include: irregular, heavy, or no periods; acne; and excessive hair growth on the face and body (hirsutism), unexplained fatigue; low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) after meals; lightheadedness; sweating; intense carbohydrate cravings; mood swings; hot flushes; recurrent spontaneous miscarriages.

While being overweight often is common in women with PCOS, you can be of normal weight and still have it.

Women with PCOS have unique nutritional concerns, requiring specialised nutrition advice. Reducing levels of insulin is fundamental to symptom control and weight loss and this CAN be achieved with dietary manipulation.

Unfortunately, doctors can lack the time needed and nutritional expertise to offer effective dietary advice to manage symptoms. The majority of nutrition information for PCOS on the internet can be false and misleading.
