Women who suffer from excess weight or obesity, as well as those of normal weight and even lean females, can all suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). If you have been diagnosed with this insidious disease, or think you may have the disorder, it’s never too early or too late to fight your way back to better health.
A first step towards better managing the symptoms of PCOS is to get regular exercise and eat a healthy diet to help balance your hormones.
Try to fit regular moderate exercise like walking into your routine. As you become stronger, you’ll find yourself able to walk longer distances and become confident about trying more strenuous new activities like aerobic exercise.
A good diet for PCOS sufferers has lots of vegetables, low GI (Glycemic Index)fruits, nuts, beans and whole grains. It should also limit foods that are high in saturated fat, such as meats, cheeses and fried foods.
Most women with PCOS can benefit from losing weight. If you are overweight, losing just 10lbs can help regulate your menstrual cycle or help you feel better if you’re post-menopausal.
Extra Tip: Women who smoke have potentially harmful higher levels of male androgen hormones than women who don’t smoke. These androgens can exacerbate multiple symptoms of PCOS. The risk of heart disease, not to mention lung cancer, is also greatly increased by smoking.
