The root cause of PCOS

Dr. Rakhi Gupta says, “PCOS is a common problem. It is not a disease but a lifestyle disorder. 10 - 20 % of women and girls have this problem. It basically affects the reproductive system. It affects the reproductive age group of women starting from 10 years of age and increasing to 40 - 45 years of age. The major cause is lifestyle problems. At reproductive age, our diet is affected by oily, junk, sugary, and street food. This causes high-calorie intake. This increases fat deposition which leads to hormonal imbalance. Other causes of PCOS are- 

  • Lack of exercise
