Diet and Exercise Really Can Help Ward Off PCOS-Linked Diabetes

Those of us with PCOS are vulnerable to the onset of diabetes, especially if weight issues are involved. But careful eating and regular exercise can help to stave off the disorder, a study suggests.

U.S. researchers followed up nearly 3,000 overweight people who had taken part in a three-year diabetes prevention program. Participants were divided into three groups, assigned either to a diet and exercise program, the diabetes drug metformin or a placebo.
 
All three groups were given access to ongoing healthy lifestyle coaching once the initial three-year trial had ended, with dieters reaping the most benefit.
 
Those on a balanced, nutritious diet aimed at achieving 7% weight loss, combined with half an hour of exercise five days a week, reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% compared with the placebo group. The group on metformin, a drug which has been used to treat diabetes since the 1950s, saw their risk decline by nearly a third. The placebo group showed little change.
