PCOS and Lifestyle changes
Lifestyle changes can possibly reduce symptoms of PCOS. All women with PCOS should be encouraged to exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet.
Exercise can help the body regulate insulin and can reduce male hormone levels in the body. Reducing weight will make your menstrual cycle more regular. This may be difficult as women with PCOS have trouble losing weight. But according to the NHS women who just lose 5% of their weight will experience an improvement in their symptoms of PCOS.
A healthy diet will also help with some of the symptoms associated with PCOS. It is recommended that women follow a diet which has a low GI (glycaemic index). Foods that are low in GI can improve and help balance insulin levels. An increase in insulin levels can upset hormonal balance of the body. Diet should include lots of fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts. Quitting smoking is a good idea as smoking has been linked to increased androgen levels.
Dairy free diet is known to work for some people with PCOS. A large amount of dairy is known to increase testosterone levels in the body. There has been a link between consumption of dairy and risk of PCOS. Cows that lactate and produce milk produce hormones. Dairy cows are kept on sex hormones or pregnant so they can lactate so when you drink dairy you are also consuming some amounts of these hormones. Selective breeding of dairy cattle, the use of drugs and injecting the cow with a genetically modified growth hormone allows the cow to produce more milk means the quality of cow’s milk is not the same as it once was. Dairy consumptions spikes up male hormones, androgens and testosterone and increases insulin levels same as sugary foods do. Some clinical papers have shown that dairy aggravates PCOS acne. It stimulates and produces hormones linked to acne.
Many of our clients have reported an improvement in their skin having cut out dairy. Two large controlled trials found that cows milk increased the number of people who got acne and its severity. The human body is not made to digest large amounts of milk on a regular basis.
Although there have been some clinical trials and many people have reported a link of dairy and PCOS the issue is yet not resolved.
