Do you have PCOS? Are you struggling to feel better? Do you wish you had more energy? Are your symptoms making you feel down?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. It is, also one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders, coming with 4 types:
- Insulin-resistant PCOS
- Inflammatory PCOS
- Hidden cause PCOS
- Pill-induced PCOS
It’s easy to feel like your life is out of control when you’re suffering from PCOS, but one factor that you do have control over is what you put in your body. Making small changes toward a healthy lifestyle, can dramatically help with PCOS.
To help you on your journey, we recommend @thewomensdietitan. We love Cory Ruth, MS, RDN because she really puts it all down on paper (or on our phones) explaining PCOS in an engaging and interesting way. From fun snack ideas, healthy dinner options and even PCOS friendly desserts she motivates us with recipes that are sugar-free, high in vitamins and low in sugar.
For overall wellness tips and postpartum advice with PCOS then we highly recommend you check out Brigette Warne's account - @pcos_to_wellness. Brigette shares ways to naturally manage your PCOS symptoms, as well as tips for postpartum and motherhood.
If you are trying to conceive (or thinking about conception in the next 12 months) then Caitlin Johnson can be your Instagram guide (@pcsofertilitynutrition). She also assists with tracking your cervical mucus patterns and focuses in on insulin resistance.
And lastly, but by no means least, we'd recommend following the pcos nutrition center (@pcosnutrition). This is real content with the benefit of advice about supplements for PCOS (because let's face it sometimes it's just super overwhelming).
