Low-carb diet checks insulin levels too

A low carb diet has more benefits than just losing
weight. As you'll see from the article below insulin
levels and hormones are exactly affected by a diet
low in carbs.

NEW YORK: The fertility problems and hormone
irregularities that plague women with polycystic ovary
syndrome (PCOS) may improve on a low-carbohydrate
diet, according to a new study.

In PCOS, the ovaries develop multiple cysts. Symptoms
include excessive hairiness, obesity, menstrual
abnormalities, and infertility. It could also increase the
likelihood of developing diabetes.

Dr Crystal Douglas and her colleagues at the University
of Alabama at Birmingham, recruited 15 women with
PCOS who were between the ages of 19 and 42, and
ranged from normal to obese.

Their regimens consisted of a standard diet made up
of 56 per cent carbohydrate, 31 per cent fat and the
rest protein. Compared with the standard diet, the
low-carb diet lowered insulin levels. Given these
findings, they conclude that dietary management may
be a useful addition to PCOS treatment as high insulin
levels may contribute to the hormone abnormalities
seen with PCOS."
