Diet for PCOD
A condition known as PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease) or PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) is characterised by several (or “poly”) cysts in the ovaries. Patients with PCOD experience aberrant hormone levels that lead to irregular menstruation, infertility, and some physical characteristics associated with masculinity.
The body’s various hormones work together harmoniously to maintain regular, efficient operation of all systems, including the reproductive system.
The ovaries produce an excessive amount of androgens, the male reproductive hormones, as a result of hormonal disturbances, which also prevent eggs from forming. Infertility may result from this excess of androgens and the absence of ovulation.
The primary cause of PCOD is the body’s abnormal hormonal functioning, hence it is obvious that treating this constitutional condition constitutionally will be necessary
Your PCOD issues can be controlled by a healthy diet. Dietitian Neha will assist you with your health issues.
