PCOS & diet

Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome (PCOS) is something close to me, and affects millions of women worldwide, with an estimated prevalence of 1 in 10 women in the UK (1,2) so was an honour to write this blog for Rhitrition. It is an endocrine syndrome which can cause problems to our menstrual cycle and fertility (3,4). While we cannot cure PCOS, dietary and lifestyle changes can help relieve the symptoms (1,5) which I share in thie blog.


September is PCOS awareness month. Verity is a great charity, dedicated to helping women with PCOS. You can find them here: https://www.verity-pcos.org.uk/
