The new PCOS guideline, what’s relevant for dietitians? Dr Kate Marsh, PhD, AdvAPD, CDE
Kate was a member of the Lifestyle Management and Models of Care Guideline Development Group (GDG) for the International evidence-based guideline for the assessment and management of PCOS.
It is with this experience and insight she gives a thorough overview of the guideline, specifically explaining the relevant sections for dietitians. Extremely rigorous research evidence was required for clinical recommendations to be included in the guideline. As a result, the diet recommendations in the 201 page guideline amount to just two pages. The general dietary recommendation being “General healthy eating principles should be followed for all women with PCOS across the life course, as per general population recommendations”. Clearly there is room for us to apply our professional clinical judgement to provide a personalized nutritional approach to our clients with PCOS. Kate and I discuss this at the end of the webinar.
