PCOS and Weight Loss

Weight loss can be difficult for women with PCOS, but it is achievable.  It is important to remember that weight loss with PCOS will be gradual and slow due to the hormonal imbalances, inflammation, and blood sugar issues associated with PCOS.   To reach your weight loss goals, work with your doctor to incorporate medications that will work to improve insulin sensitivity.  Weight loss will be possible when you combine a healthy diet, regular exercise, and proper medication.  Remember, weight loss may be slow, but once you lose ~5-10% of your body weight, your PCOS symptoms will be largely controlled.
