Is PCOS Curable?Dr Chinmayie R
The answer to that today is “No”. There is no cure for PCOS yet, but there are many ways you can decrease or eliminate PCOS symptoms and feel better. Here are some ways to manage it.
Diet and Exercise
In obese people, weight loss can be very effective in easing many health conditions. Losing weight may help to lower your blood glucose levels, improve the way your body uses insulin and help your hormones reach normal levels. Even 5-10% loss in body weight can help make your menstrual cycle more regular and improve your chances of getting pregnant.
Avoid junk foods like pizza, burgers, pasta, beverages etc. Reduce the intake of unsaturated fats, oily foods, carbohydrate-rich diet. Eating fresh green leafy vegetables, fruits rich in vitamin C like orange gooseberry. Taking a balanced diet according to BMI is ideal. Some medicines that can be used with PCOS and their impact is given below
1) Hormonal control can be obtained by pill, patch, vaginal rings and hormonal IUD This makes the cycle regular, helps to improve acne and reduces extra hair on the face and the body. It also reduces the risk of endometrial cancer
2) Anti-androgens medicines: These medicines block the effect of androgens and reduce scalp hair loss, facial and body hair growth and acne
3) Metformin: Improves insulin ability to lower both insulin and androgen levels. After a few months of use, it helps to restart ovulation, but it usually has little effect on the face or body. It also lowers BMI and improves cholesterol levels.
The outer shell called the cortex of ovaries is thickened in women with PCOS and prevents spontaneous ovulation. Ovarian drilling is a surgery in which the doctor makes a few holes in the surface of the ovary using a laser/fine needle. It restores ovulation. This is usually done as laparoscopic surgery and is often a daycare procedure.
