A new, small study of overweight women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) finds that a ketogenic diet improved a number of metabolic markers of this common reproductive, endocrine disorder.
The study, conducted by a team from a trio of universities in Italy, followed 14 women with PCOS over 12 weeks. The subjects ate a Mediterranean ketogenic diet, along with some low-carb protein and herbal supplements.
The diet helped the women lose a significant amount of body weight and body fat, decreased their insulin resistance, improved all their disordered hormone levels as well as their blood lipids, and reduced their inflammation.
