  • Hi, I am Jyothi Chabria. We will be discussing poly cystic ovaries and thyroid in this segment.

  • Poly Cystic Ovaries is a condition which is so rampant today amongst youngsters. Symptoms

  • of poly cystic ovaries is unexplained weight gain, facial hair, acne, hair fall, infertility

  • in later part of life when you are trying for pregnancy, it causes delay in pregnancy,

  • it causes pigmentation in some patients. These are all due to hormonal imbalance. Likewise

  • thyroid is also a insufficiency of the thyroxine hormone in thyroid gland. There are two types

  • of thyroid actually, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is where 90% of the segment

  • belongs to where people tend to gain weight. Again in this you have irregular periods with

  • young girls, weight gain. Hyperthyroidism is a condition which is seen much, in lesser

  • section of the society, where people tend to lose weight in hyper hyperthyroidism. Now

  • basically this is because of hormonal imbalance of the hormones. In fact poly cystic ovaries,

  • thyroid and diabetes are like three ends to a triangle. One hormonal imbalance can lead

  • to the other. Well if you do ask me how to correct this? the line of treatment for hypothyroid

  • patient or poly cystic ovaries patient is nothing but weight loss. In fact there is

  • a very small segment of patients who are lean and yet still have poly cystic ovaries, but

  • despite that what we do is we put them on weight, not necessarily a weight loss program

  • but we try to curb their weight so that, its all about improving circulation. So, in terms

  • of weight loss what we do is we put them on a low calorie diet, more frequent smaller

  • meals that goes through the day and we encourage exercise because exercise plays a very major

  • role in poly cystic and thyroid patients which helps them to improve circulation. In a poly

  • cystic ovary patient or a thyroid patient who is over weight we would definitely recommend

  • them to have a low carb diet with a medium protein, of course based on their age, height,

  • weight all that is taken in to account. But things like lemon grass which are again having

  • anti oxidants properties, flax seed are encouraged. So, in poly cystic ovaries patients what we

  • would definitely recommend is a low carbohydrate diet with medium protein. We help them to

  • use protein as a source of energy and whats important is it is all about improving circulation,

  • so exercise is really encouraged in PCOD patients. Now, we have seen that as patients start losing

  • weight all these symptoms that they have been experiencing over the past 2 - 3 months start

  • corrected as they start losing weight. And, foods which are encouraged are things like

  • you know green tea, probably which has anti oxidants, flax seed, you have lemon grass,

  • wheat grass juice which again helps to cover the anti oxidant quotient that is required in their diet.
