Can Losing Weight By PCOS Disappear By Itself?
Hello doc. I want to ask, if someone has PCOS. Does losing weight make PCOS shrink and disappear on its own? Thank you
Hello, Proverbs M. Bastatas. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that is quite common in women of reproductive age due to the ovaries producing large amounts of fluid (follicles) and failing to release eggs regularly. Complaints that are often experienced by patients include menstrual cycle disorders become rare or no menstruation at all and symptoms due to hyperandrogenism (many pimples, mustache growth). Enforcement of the diagnosis requires anamnesis, physical examination, and supporting examination (especially ultrasound) by obstetricians.
The first line management of PCOS is weight loss. Epidemiological data indicate that the frequency of obesity in women with PCOS ranges from 30-75%. With a weight loss of 5-10% can restore the process of ovulation (release of eggs by the ovaries) as much as> 55% in a period of <6 months. Weight loss is also beneficial for improving fertility in PCOS patients. Therefore, weight loss has a very important role in the management of PCOS.
We advise PCOS patients to consult an obstetrician. Your doctor may prescribe biguanid drugs and if necessary hormonal drugs. If necessary, laparoscopy and pregnancy planning can also be planned, depending on the patient's condition.
