Why is the rise in PCOS cases directly linked to your diet?

It is the most common ovarian disorder with typical co-morbid like obesity, hirsutism, an-ovulation, hyperandrogenism,  and infertility.

Recently, there has been a global rise in cases associated with PCOS. There can be various reasons for this increase, but the most studied factors are an increase in the use of processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle.

As the world’s population is growing and countries are struggling to meet the food requirements of their population, many companies are selling packed and processed foods that have different stabilizers added to them to increase the shelf life of such products. Also, the use of insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides in agriculture has increased. When people consume these foods having such toxic chemicals in them, they disturb normal metabolism functions of our body and are considered to be directly linked with the increased cases of PCOS in our population.

PCOS increases the risk for various dermatologic, oncologic, metabolic, reproductive, and psychological disorders. The disorder itself and its associated conditions increase healthcare costs and contribute to reduced quality of life.

Prevalence:

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. There is now vast evidence that genetics play a very important role as a predisposing factor. Several other factors also play a role in causing PCOS, i.e Food quality, lifestyle, exposure to different chemicals and hormones, etc.

According to a local study, which was published in Journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research  30(4): 1-9, 2019; Article no.JAMMR.50476, PCOS affects around 54.1% of women of reproductive age and is most common in developed countries due to their sedentary lifestyle and more usage of processed foods, and exposure to harmful chemicals.

Management of PCOS:

Cut down all the processed and packaged food. Do not eat fried items or anything high in oil/fats. Avoid fast foods. Improving your lifestyle and adding natural foods to your diet will help you a lot in managing PCOS.

Reducing carbs intake and increasing protein and fiber intake also helps you a lot in managing PCOS.
