PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome. Characteristics include a woman having multiple fluid-filled sacs on the ovaries and imbalanced hormones. The result is irregular or absent menstruation, leading to reduced fertility.


Genetics, insufficient physical activity, overweight, and an unhealthy diet are factors that influence the development of PCOS. These factors all affect hormone balance.


Insulin is one of the hormones that is imbalanced; it regulates blood sugar levels. Women with PCOS often experience insulin resistance. Regularly high insulin production can lead to overweight and type 2 diabetes.



In PCOS, it is important to increase the insulin sensitivity of the body’s cells and lower the blood glucose levels. Additionally, weight reduction is important if there is overweight. A healthy and complete diet with complex carbohydrates, possibly combined with weight loss, improves blood sugar levels and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.
