Abstract

Introduction: Diet plays a significant role in the regulation of blood glucose and insulin levels, yet research into the dietary management of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is lacking. The rationale of this study was to study the specific dietary factors that may contribute in the development of PCOS in our part of the world.

Objective: To determine the mean intake of different dietary factors in young females with polycystic ovarian disease by comparing with controls

Patients and Methods: A total of eighty-four female patients equally divided into two groups. Cases group comprised of patients diagnosed with PCOS while control group comprised of healthy individuals taken from hospital staffs. Intake of amount of servings of potatoes and white bread in the last 7 days were recorded in both groups and compared using independent t test.

Results: Mean servings of white bread in last seven days was 5.5 ± 1.9 and 7.55 ± 1.74 servings among controls and cases respectively (P<0.05). Mean servings of potatoes in last 7 days among controls was 3.48 ± 1.74 servings, while among cases it was 6.26 ± 2.39 servings (P<0.05).

Conclusion: Women diagnosed with PCOS usually exhibit a pattern in diet that showed greater intake of foods that have a high glycemic index.
