Study Reveals Varied Landscape Of Pcos Prevalence Among Women In India

A recent study conducted across various states in India has uncovered a nuanced and diverse landscape in the prevalence of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) among women. The findings, gathered from investigations spanning from 2011 to 2021, shed light on the multifaceted nature of this common hormonal disorder affecting women.

In 2011, researchers reported a PCOS prevalence of 9.13% among individuals aged 15-18. A subsequent study in 2013 documented a higher prevalence of 15.42% in the 10-19 age group. Further studies in 2019 reported varying rates, including 17.33% among individuals aged 10-19 in a specific state.

Studies in Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, and Telangana reported PCOS prevalence rates in 2018 of 8.20%, 4.55%, and 11.54%, respectively, contributing to the overall understanding of PCOS distribution in India.

Nutritionist Stathos, as per a report from John Hopkins, emphasizes the importance of opting for whole, unprocessed foods to improve long-term health outcomes for individuals with PCOS. A balanced dietary approach can have significant benefits for managing symptoms.

The author of the report is a research scholar at BIT Mesra in Ranchi, adding credibility to the insights provided.
