Diet For PCO Conditions That Have Heartburn?

Hello Evi, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Because the condition of PCO is very closely related to insulin resistance in the body so its long-term factors are urged to be avoided. Because if insulin resistance occurs in a long time then the level of sugar in the blood will always tend to increase, this is because insulin which functions in delivering sugar / glucose into cells does not work effectively because of the resistance / immunity. Finally, it can be concluded that PCO can cause the predictor to be more likely to have diabetes than people who don't have PCO.
The dietary principles of PCO are:
reduce carbohydrate consumption. So that the body still feels enough energy during the day of activity, so when consumption of carbohydrates is reduced, instead choose foods that are high in protein and healthy fats, it is intended that blood sugar levels are maintained and insulin levels in the blood remain stable. In addition, another function of consuming high-protein foods is to suppress hunger hormones, so you will feel full sooner and not easily hungry.
Choose carbohydrate foods with a low sugar index such as whole grains, vegetables, protein and healthy fats
multiply the intake of vitamin D by doing activities in the morning that can be exposed to morning sun such as exercising in the morning
avoid processed carbohydrate foods such as flour, noodles, types of foods that contain both kinds of carbohydrates such as bread, pasta. Besides liquid sugar such as corn fructose syrup, and dextrose is better avoided.
In getting around the history of magh that you have, then you should not be late in eating, besides choosing foods that do not make your stomach more bloated and trigger your ulcers such as cabbage, mustard greens, jackfruit and the like. And you should avoid foods that are too spicy because it can worsen the condition of your stomach. So that we can convey, hopefully useful.
