Weight reduction plays a major role in managing the complications of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome is a hormonal disorder in women. Studies and observations have shown that proper weight management has resolved many issues associated with PCOS.
PCOS Is Characterized By:
It Causes Symptoms Such As:
Long studies and cumulative data reflect that there are two kinds of PCOS, with central obesity (fat accumulation in the abdomen) and peripheral obesity (fat accumulation in the hips, buttocks, and thighs). Obesity has been directly and indirectly linked to the cholesterol levels in the human body. Hormones are the derivatives of cholesterol and therefore any changes in cholesterol levels reflect on those of the hormones.
Excessive obesity leads to an imbalance in FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone) and in turn, this leads to menstrual irregularities. This is seen most commonly in case of central obesity. Weight reduction has shown promising results on the regularization of menses in central obesity patients.
A Combination of Calorie-Burning Exercises and a Balanced Low Cholesterol Diet Helps in Weight Management
I strongly suggest the strategy of strict weight management in case of PCOS and resolving the issues by the above-mentioned methods.
