Are you suffering from PCOD or PCOS?

PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome is a metabolic disorder which can lead to noo periods or irregular periods in females. People having PCOS can have multiple cysts in their ovaries. It occurs due to overproduction of androgens like testosterone.

These people have higher levels of a hormone called insulin in their bodies. Insulin is responsible for converting sugar or glucose into energy. Blood sugar levels tend to increase when the body does not produce enough insulin or is not able to use the insulin present that is insulin resistance.

If there is insulin resistance in the body, it produces more insulin for metabolising glucose. Higher amounts of insulin lead to overproduction of androgens which ultimately causes PCOS.


1. High fibre foods like broccoli, bell peppers, beans, lentils, almonds, cauliflower etc. should be taken in large amounts as they decrease the effect of glucose in blood and help in tackling insulin resistance.

2. Spinach, kale, tomatoes, walnuts, blueberries etc to reduce inflammatory effects.

3. Proteins like chicken, tofu, fish etc can be taken.


1. Refined carbohydrates like white bread, pastries, muffins etc must be avoided as they increase insulin resistance and cause inflammation.

2. Any kind of sugar or sugary foods must be avoided as it will further increase insulin production in the body.

3. Drinks like juice soda should be avoided as it can increase sugar levels in body.

4. Avoid any kind of junk and fried food like fries etc. to help reduce inflammation.
