PCOS Nutrition

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a very common hormone disorder in women, a leading cause of infertility and one of the most under diagnosed diseases in the U.S. The majority of women with PCOS tend to have insulin resistance, which increases their risk for type 2 diabetes.

Common symptoms of PCOS might include irregular menses, issues with weight, increased hair growth, acne, and infertility.

PCOS can be successfully treated through a healthy diet along with regular, consistent exercise, which reduces the risk of diabetes and other metabolic complications associated with the condition.

At the Michigan Center for Fertility and Women’s Health, we offer an all-encompassing treatment approach, which includes diet, exercise, medication and emotional support. We will customize a food plan that is right for you. After all, just like with diabetes, there isn’t a one-size fits all diet for women with the condition. Our emphasis is on eating whole foods and eliminating as much processed or refined foods as possible. We also stress a diet that is free from additives and other artificial substances.
