PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility and other health problems like irregular periods, heart attack, obesity and skin issues. Studies have shown that PCOD is not curable, but once the exact cause is identified, it is possible to control it.

What causes PCOS?

  • Increase in insulin levels – Insulin is a hormone that is produced in the pancreas and helps the cells to utilise sugar and convert it into energy. In case you become insulin resistant, your body is unable to convert sugar into energy effectively. This could also create increase the production of androgen and cause PCOD. Obesity is a major cause of insulin resistance. Both obesity and insulin resistance can increase your risk for type 2 diabetes.
  • Low-grade inflammation – Women who suffer from PCOD usually have low-grade inflammation that stimulates their ovaries to produce excess male hormones. Obesity also contributes to inflammation.
  • Genetic issues – If any female member of your family, like your mother or sister, suffers from PCOS, then there are chances of you getting affected with PCOS as well.

To avoid PCOD, the best way is to bring about certain lifestyle modifications and feed your body with the right kind of diet. Call on our toll-free number 18002660607, book an appointment with our health experts and get a diet plan as per your body requirements!
