Polycystic ovary syndrome-Disease -PCOS or PCOD-


There is no absolute cure for PCOS but with healthy lifestyle (Vihar) and diet (Ahar), along with medicines (Aushadhi), PCOS can be managed. The goal of management is to reduce the symptoms associated with PCOS and minimise the complications in the future.

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

The goal of PCOS diet is to promote weight loss. Diets that are low in fat and carb-rich may increase insulin levels, so for women with PCOS, a low-carb diet is recommended. Rather than completely restricting carbohydrates, more complex carbohydrates and fibres should be included in the diet. Some diet tips include:

  • Increase intake of whole-grain cereals, barley, brown rice, and beans.
  • Avoid white bread, pasta and rice.
  • Increase intake of fruits, vegetables, pulses and wholegrain foods.

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

The primary lifestyle recommendation is control of body weight.

  • Perform routine aerobic exercises and yogasanas to keep your weight in check.
  • Avoid smoking, alcohol intake and caffeine intake (coffee, soft drinks, energy drinks, etc).
