As of now, researchers are still trying to discover both the cause and the cure for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). In the meantime, there are many ways that you can try to manage the symptoms of this condition and prevent its progression. Since excess insulin and androgen levels are sometimes a factor in PCOS, try to limit your sugar and carbohydrate intake. If you have a family history of the condition or have an accompanying illness like low-grade inflammation and diabetes, talk to your doctor about frequent checkups for PCOS. Also, take any medication as directed in order to control your menstrual cycle and PCOS symptoms.
