What is PCOD/PCOS?

PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) or PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) are names given to the same ailment. PCOD affects nearly 1 million women per year in India only, mostly striking at an early age. As the name already suggests, in the disease, the development of multiple cysts (blisters inside the body) in the ovary takes place. Due to this ovary enlarges and excessive production of androgen and estrogen (female hormones) happens to lead to multiple disorders in the body. Symptoms of the ailment are already listed above.

Causes of PCOS

The exact causes of PCOS are still unknown but excess production of male hormones (androgen) inside the body may lead it. High levels of the male hormone inside the body prevent ovaries from producing eggs normally, leading to many problems. 

PCOS runs in families so, it is related to genes, meaning that if your ancestor had it there are high chances of you catching it. Insulin resistance and inflammation of tissues also lead to excessive production of a male hormone which then leads to PCOD.

PCOD diet plan

Diet affects the problem in two major ways first a good diet led to PCOS weight management and second it maintains the insulin level of the body (One is a significant symptom of the ailment and other being a major reason behind the disease).

Here dietplusminus has listed some of the diets which will help everyone fight the disease and control the symptoms to a great extent.

  • Low Glycemic index (GI) diet- A diet in which less amount of Glycemic is present may help a lot in this case. A diet with low GI is digested slowly inside the body meaning, that they do not lead to rising the insulin level, which is necessary to be balanced. Nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, whole grains all come in a low GI diet.
  • Less inflammatory diet- Inflammation of tissues is a major cause of the disease so, ingesting an inflammatory diet can do worse. Berries, fishes, leafy green vegetables can help to reduce symptoms.
  • Dietary approaches to stop hypertension (DASH Diet)- It includes fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, etc. DASH diet is highly recommended for PCOS.
