Women with PCOS reduce insulin resistance and improve their menstrual cycles on a diet which minimizes blood sugar increases, according to a new study.
Researchers at the University of Sydney, Australia, focused on ninety-six overweight women with PCOS who were split into two groups. The first group followed a diet featuring food that lowers blood sugar spikes while the second group went on a “regular healthy diet” that had the same level of total carbs, protein and fats but was not specifically geared to reducing blood sugar increases.
The women in the first group reduced their insulin resistance to a greater degree than the “regular healthy diet” group. And almost all (95%) of the women in the first group experienced improved menstrual cycles, whereas only 63% of the other group underwent an improvement.
Many experts now regard a low glycemic load (GL) diet as the healthiest when it comes to preventing spikes in blood sugar.
