Weight Loss for PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition encountered in young women. This is due to abnormal functioning of the ovaries and excess male hormones. Most women do not have symptoms.

Signs and symptoms of PCOS include:

  • Irregular or absent menstrual periods
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty getting pregnant
  • Excessive hair growth, usually over face, chest and back
  • Thinning of hair over scalp
  • Acne

In young adults PCOS is quite distressing leading to irregular periods, hirsuitism and infertility. In the later stages women with PCOS can develop Type 2 Diabetes, hypertension and are at risk of cardio vascular events like heart attack and stroke.

Most women with PCOS have hormone (In) resistance and struggle to lose weight. Weight loss improves the condition; however a comprehensive management which is personalised to their needs is required for long-term benefits. Weight management is not just about reducing the calories consumed and increasing activity, there are a number of other factors involved which is why women with weight problem find it difficult to lose weight.
