Diet and PCOS - emerging evidence Presented by: Claire Julsing Strydom, Registered Dietitian, SA
International guidelines for the management of PCOS were published late in 2018. The dietary recommendations are very general and limited. As Dr Kate Marsh, who was on the international panel, explained in her webinar with us that there just weren’t enough robust studies on diet and PCOS for the guidelines to be making evidence-based recommendations.
What Claire has researched and practiced and shares in her presentation are diet and nutritional recommendations which are safe and have growing evidence in their positive impact on the health and lives of women with PCOS.
Claire gives an overview of the pathophysiology of PCOS and associated health risks. She then provides the latest research looking at suggested macronutrient targets for women with PCOS.
Claire looks at a range of nutrients which should be considered in our clients with PCOS:
- Vitamin D
- N-acetyl cysteine
- Omega 3 fatty acids
