Hello friends,

I am Dietitian Shilpa Chawla, Mentor Shilpa Chawla Health Clinic. I am in this field of dietics and nutritions since last 10 years and have been able to bring smiles on thousands of people who are having a lot of trouble in their health, but with the only with only diet tips and healthy lifestyle and exercise routine they were able to come to the normal lifestyle and they were happy with the kind of diet I have been giving to them, they are having a very healthy lifestyle. I have been able to help people who are suffering from diabetes, type 2 insulin resistance, high insulin, high cholesterol, fatty liver, PCOD and many other problems. But today I will be talking to you regarding PCOD and PCOS, so friends starting with it, what is PCOD or what is PCOS? PCOD is Polycystic ovarian disease or Polycystic ovarian syndrome, it is the phase where the eggs do not mature and the ovaries do not release them after every month and they keep on accumulating in the ovaries or the sak for a longer time and they become Polycystic. This problem basically comes with lot of symptoms like having facial hair, abdominal fat, baldness and you know body hair etc. with this girls become very conscious and they have lot of emotional mood swings also. So I tried to help them holistically to come out of this problem emotionally as well as physical changes which they are facing, I tried to help them in that also and it has been seen that girls from the age of 14 to 44 which is the child making age or the baby bearing age, the girls are facing these problem nowadays. And it is very sad that 70% of the girls they get undiagnosed because they feel shy to talk about it to the parents or to the doctors or to their friends. So friends, I would like to tell that please nowadays it is very common this thing that we all have menstrual cycle, so we should be free to talk about this to the parents or to the doctors. Whereas, I would like to tell that every female has to go through puberty, so prevention is better than cure, so the girls should from the age of 13 or 12 should start with having good exercise pattern and stop eating sugary foods which basically pastries, cake at etc. and because the insulin level increases in the sugar and in this what happens is the girls with PCOD problem they are more prone to have diabetes. So, no sugary food items you should avoid simple carbohydrates, stop having white bread, or maida or refined flour you should add on to complex carbohydrates by adding oats, bajra, ragi etc to your food and moreover the regular exercise is very important to cure the PCOD problem, strength exercises are very important. You should have fixed timing of your food pattern because and you should not have any TV, laptop, magazine etc. while you are eating your food and moreover you should have a very sleep well pattern of 6 to 8 hours because sleep leads to recovery, rest leads to recovery.

So friends, for better tips and more customised diet plan I would suggest you to contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.
