Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age and is one of the leading causes of infertility. PCOS is a complex hormonal disorder that involves multiple organ systems within the body, with a strong correlation to insulin resistance. There is a wide variation in the etiology, signs, and symptoms of PCOS, which makes diagnosing difficult. Individualized treatment plans for PCOS include diet, lifestyle changes, weight reduction, exercise, and medication. Teaching women what they need to do to alleviate the symptoms and prevent the long-term consequences of PCOS will empower them to take back control of their life.
The goal of this polycystic ovarian syndrome continuing education program is to help the dietitian, dietary manager, fitness professional, and health educator understand the etiology and diagnosis of PCOS and how individualized treatment with diet, exercise, medication, and lifestyle changes alleviate symptoms, discomfort, and infertility.
Conference Objectives are :
• Describe the physical and clinical signs of PCOS
• Describe the role of insulin, androgens, dyslipidemia, and environmental factors in PCOS
• Explain how lifestyle changes, including diet, medications, exercise, weight reduction, and behavioral changes, play a role in the therapy and treatment of PCOS
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
