Polycystic Ovary Syndrome & Type 2 Diabetes, Treatment

Do you or anyone you know have PCOS, otherwise known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?  Or do you have or know anyone who has Type 2 diabetes?  You maybe surprised to learn that the treatments for both diseases are remarkably similar.  Both can be managed with lifestyle changes.  Both have the similar drug    treatments recommended.  If you or someone you know has this drugs aren't necessary,  if they make significant changes in their lifestyles through diet and exercise.

Getting 5 days of exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes is very important. The exercise needs to raise your heart rate to get maximum benefit.  Walking, biking, running, swimming, dancing, single's tennis, rowing, kayaking are some of the vigorous exercises that will help with changing your conditions.

The diet part is the other big piece of the picture.  Eating a balance of lean protein (fish, soy, eggs, or egg whites, low fat diary products, white meat chicken & turkey, bison, or very lean cuts of beef) (approximately palm size and thickness), low glycemic, high fiber carbohydrates, and some monounsaturated fats at each meal will help change your conditions.  Staying away from sugar and sweetened drinks will help you reach your health goals.
