The treatment for PCOS completely depends on the symptoms and need of the woman suffering from it.
Broadly, treatment can be divided into 2 categories, depending whether or not the woman is keen on conceiving in the near future.
Whether you fall into the group of women with PCOS who are underweight, of average weight or overweight, the diet you follow will have an impact on your body.
Two types of diets have been recommended for women with PCOS. The diet that is best, though, is a process of trial and error for most women.
Whether you choose low carbohydrates or low GI, or neither, one thing we should all keep an eye on is the number of calories we eat. Care should be taken to ensure that the intake of calories is not in excess of the number of calories burned.
Eating small frequent meals, i.e., 5-6 small meals daily in an effort to keep sugar levels balanced and stop people from getting that hungry feeling throughout the day, has been recommended for women with PCOS.
Starting an exercise regime can be a difficult job. A daily 30 minute walk is a great start. You can then gradually increase the duration of exercise. Involving a family member or friend in your exercise schedule can make it more fun.
Other forms of exercise that you can resort to are swimming, jogging, cycling, dancing, playing a sport like badminton, tennis, etc. Besides these forms of exercise, you should attempt to incorporate exercise in your day to day activities.
