Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have irregular periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.
The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment along with fat loss may reduce the risk of long-term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Women with PCOS require long-term care because many (almost 80%) are at increased risk for diabetes, heart disease and high insulin levels— making weight loss difficult. Sleep apnea may also be present. You may have a high chance of diabetes during pregnancy. Sometimes thyroid imbalance is also seen in women with PCOS.
We recommend a very low carb diet as it improves insulin function and promotes fat loss. For a more detailed explanation please refer to
