The origin of PCOS can be hereditary, but little else is known about it. Although, it is often considered a reproductive disorder, those treating PCOS as insulin resistance have shown to manage their symptoms more effectively.
Take a look at your dietary habits. How much sugar would you say you consume on any given day: bread, refined flour, and sugary drinks? With PCOS and insulin resistance going hand in hand, having a balanced diet can help significantly. Meals should include a healthy balance of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, plant–based protein, lean meats, and healthy fats. Trade in that white bread for a hearty whole wheat variety! Select high fiber choices such as brown rice and whole grain breads and pasta. A balanced diet combined with exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight which is also shown to be important in alleviating symptoms.
