Role of myo-inositol in PCOS

Myo-Inositol: A Shining Star for PCOS Management, by Ankita Sehgal, Registered Dietitian (15+ Years Experience)

Hi everyone, Ankita Sehgal here, your dietitian for PCOD management with over 15 years of experience. Today, we're diving into a topic many of you search for: myo-inositol and PCOS.

What is Myo-Inositol?

Myo-inositol, often called simply inositol, is a sugar alcohol similar to B vitamins that our bodies naturally produce. It plays a crucial role in insulin signaling, a major factor in PCOS.

Why is Myo-Inositol Important for PCOS?

Many women with PCOS struggle with insulin resistance, where cells become less responsive to insulin. This disrupts blood sugar regulation and hormone balance, leading to symptoms like irregular periods, weight gain, and unwanted hair growth.

Research suggests myo-inositol may improve insulin sensitivity, potentially leading to:

More regular menstrual cycles ([Source: Taylor & Francis Online]: [full article: Update on the combination of myo-inositol/d-chiro-inositol for the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome])
Improved egg quality ([Source: Reproductive Health Journal]: [Impact of myo-inositol treatment in women with polycystic ovary syndrome in assisted reproductive technologies])
Reduced androgen (male hormone) levels ([Source: Verywell Health]: [What to Know About Taking Inositol for PCOS])
Can Diet Help Manage PCOS?

Absolutely! While myo-inositol can be a helpful tool, a PCOS-friendly diet is the foundation. Here's how your diet can support your PCOS management:

Focus on whole grains, fruits, and vegetables: These offer sustained energy, regulate blood sugar, and provide essential nutrients.
Limit processed foods and refined carbohydrates: These can spike blood sugar and worsen insulin resistance.
Choose healthy fats: Include sources like nuts, seeds, and olive oil for hormone balance and satiety.
Prioritize protein: Lean protein helps manage weight and promotes feelings of fullness.

Key Takeaways:

Myo-inositol shows promise in managing PCOS symptoms.
A PCOS-friendly diet is crucial for overall health and PCOS management.

Talk to your dietitian about myo-inositol and personalized dietary strategies.
