PCOD is the most common endocrine system disorder in women of reproductive age characterized by irregular menstruation, polycystic ovaries and hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance and obesity. This syndrome also increases the risk of diseases like type 2 diabetes, hypertension, lipid disorders, cardiovascular diseases and malignancies such as breast and endometrial cancer. Nutritional management plays an important role in the treatment - •Dietary modifications must ensure insulin sensitivity and weight loss. This includes decreasing the total caloric intake with moderate (45-55% of total calories) amount of complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals, sprouted legumes and pulses, seasonally available vegetables and fruits in moderate quantity and avoiding sugary drinks. • Food sources of good quality protein should be included in the diet. Ensure they are included in the meals. Choose from low fat milk, curd, dals, sprouted legumes, paneer, eggs, chicken, eggs, fish etc. • Saturated fats and trans-fats from the diet should be avoided. This include avoidance of hydrogenated fats, fried foods, bakery products, fast foods etc • Supplementation of vitamin D3 and chromium picolinate is helpful to improve glucose tolerance, insulin sensitivity. • Regular physical activity under the guidance of an expert plays a vital role in improvement.
