Even the girls of 13 years are affected with PCOS. She said, due to this, eggs are not properly formed and matured. There may be many reasons; which include genetic problems, environment, enzyme deficiency and taking a lot of junk food.
Its a major problem in females of North India
Secretary of ESAR Delhi, Dr. Shivani Sachdev Gaur said that the infertility is especially prevalent in the females of North India. This is caused by change in hormonal pattern which changes due to excess formation of male hormone. The patient has hairs on their chin and above the lips; they have hair fall, diabetes and high cholesterol. The conference was mainly attended by Dr. Abha Majumdar, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Dr. Bharati Dore Patil from Pune, Dr. Jyoti Malik, Secretary, Haryana State, ESAR, Dr. Seema Pandey from Azamgarh, Dr. Arshi Iqbal from Kota, Dr. Anshu Jindal and Dr. Sunil Jindal from Meerut.
Ways to combat the disease
The best way to cope up with the problem is to reduce the weight. Antibiotics like metformin and drugs like inositol can be helpful. Gonadotropin injection can help the women facing infertility. Some females require treatment like test-tube baby for becoming a mother. Excess food becomes a reason for developing PCOS disease, therefore, the change in lifestyle and diet is important.
