Fertility and PCOD
PCOD is the most common reason for infertility. But with proper weight management, quality life and prevention of chronic conditions of PCOS can solve this problem. Women with PCOD reach risk of chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, type two diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Women who are obese are most at risk of chronic conditions. Optimal weight management can increase insulin sensitivity, elevate the symptoms of PCOD, increase fertility and decrease the risk of chronic conditions later.
By controlling weight management and losing about 5 to 10% of weight gives improvements in clinical outcomes. Blood glucose control addresses insulin resistance that is responsible for the symptoms of PCOS. For this the women should consume small regular meals throughout the day and avoid skipping meals. Also have low GI carbohydrates which are high in fiber. This will allow glucose to be released slowly into the bloodstream. High fiber food leaves women feeling fuller for longer which helps to prevent excess food consumption. Consumption of refined oil, walnuts, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, fish oil, Olive oil , avocado is better then having saturated fat such as butter, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil, ice cream etc.
