Nutritional deficiencies have a large impact on the treatment of PCOD. So the first step has to be to eat right.

Obesity is the mother of many illnesses. PCOD is not different. So bid goodbye to those extra kilos you have just being living with. By maintaining a healthy BMI, women can fight with the symptoms of PCOS while reducing the androgen level in the body, which curbs irregular periods and infertility. It is an absolute essential to do moderate exercise for 30-40 minutes per day to build up muscles and to boost your mood.

Lack of sleep, smoking, drinking or stress. Stress is the underlying reason for binge eating thus leading to an unhealthy you. So nip it in the bud. Have a vent out plan/technique to cope with the stress effectively.
- Health Supplements
Furocyst, a well known health supplement has been clinically proven for management for PCOD and PCOS. A clinical study conducted on 50 women in the age group of 18-45 years showed significant results in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome with Furocyst. Furocyst improves insulin sensitivity and, in turn, regulates circulating androgen levels. It improves insulin-mediated glucose disposal in women with PCOS. Furocyst improved menstrual period in the study subjects and has a regulating effect of insulin on ovarian androgen biosynthesis, theca cell proliferation, and endometrial growth. It regulates ovarian androgen production leading to disappearance or decrease in size and number of cysts. Increase in LH (Luteinizing Hormone)/FSH (Follicle-Stimulating Hormone) ratio has been reported in various studies conducted on PCOD patients. Because of a decreased level of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) relative to LH (Luteinizing Hormone), the ovarian granulosa cells cannot aromatize the androgens to estrogens, which lead to decreased estrogen levels and consequent anovulation. In the present study, a significant decrease in LH/FSH ratio was observed, suggesting regulating the effect of Furocyst (Fenugreek extract).
