PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a hormonal condition that affects up to 20% of women. Diagnosed based on the presence of two of the following signs and symptoms - presence of ovarian cysts as seen on ultrasound or laparoscopy; irregular or absent menstrual cycle and / or increased androgen levels along with hair loss and/or acne, unexplained weight gain, fatigue and low mood, PCOS not only has serious implications for fertility but is can negatively impact wellbeing on a daily basis for the many sufferers.
PCOS can be largely genetic and it is also becoming increasing common as lifestyle factors result in many women rapidly gaining weight during their reproductive years. This weight gain is linked to increased insulin levels which in turn can cause cysts on the ovaries.
While PCOS is a medical condition and as such needs to be diagnosed by an experienced GP or medical practitioner and can require medication for optimal management, PCOS too needs a relatively strict lifestyle approach with regular exercise, movement and a high protein diet to help manage insulin levels. As such, Shape Me has developed a higher protein option for women battling PCOS and weight gain on an ongoing basis. As PCOS is a medical condition, Shape Me strongly recommends working directly with Susie via the Ask Susie functionality to have all of your individual needs supported throughout this program.
