Dietary therapy can help improve symptoms of the following women's conditions:

 

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a condition where a woman's body produces too much male hormone, as well as the hormone insulin. PCOS affects about one in ten women, making it the most common hormonal disorder in women. Some of the most common signs and symptoms of PCOS include irregular periods, hair growth in the face and back, weight management issues and difficulty conceiving. Women with PCOS are also at greater risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. 

How can diet therapy help improve symptoms? 

Dietary and lifestyle changes can help improve symptoms by improving the body's ability to use insulin, preventing weight gain and optimizing nutrition to help lower the risk of developing diabetes.
