Smile Pcos

Hi everyone,

Pls forgive me there is a PCOS thread already. I was recently diagnosed with PCOS, as well as an severe iron deficiency. I lost a lot of hair in the past couple months, and that's what made me visit the doctor.

I wasn't provided much information about PCOS by my doctor so I've been trying to find information from the internet. I came across a lot of people who stated that a low-carb/keto diet reversed their symptoms, including the hairloss.

I am also hoping it will also stabilize my moods and decrease anxiety. I am currently in law school so I am almost always stressed but I find that I can never really relax, even if I have free time. I also tend to get really bad migraines that go away within couple hours.

I was wondering if someone has had experience with PCOS, and if any specific diets were successful for them. I just made the switch to moderately low-carb diet, hoping to slowly transition to low-carb diet.

Any information would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Hi there, while it is advisable to avoid high GI food, avoiding them completely will have adverse affect on your body. Include a lot of green leafy vegetables, seasonal fruits, and also healthy fats. It's imperative that you indulge in some kind of exercise atleast 3 times a week. Manage your stress levels and be at peace with yourself. Hope this helps !
