DASH diet improves metabolic profile, BMI in PCOS

March 27, 2017

A low-calorie diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products resulted in beneficial effects on BMI, insulin metabolism, free androgen index, anti-Müllerian hormone, sex hormone-binding globulin, nitric oxide and malondialdehyde levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome and overweight or obesity, study data show.

Zatollah Asemi, PhD, of the department of nutrition, Kashan University of Medical Sciences in Iran, and colleagues randomly assigned women with PCOS and overweight or obesity to a low-calorie Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet (n = 30) or a control diet (n = 30) for 12 weeks to determine the effect of each diet on weight loss, anti-Müllerian hormone levels and metabolic profiles.
