Dairy products and PCOS

Dairy products and PCOS

Milk is a rich source of calcium and protein and is also considered a carbohydrate food due to its high lactose content. Women with PCOS are recommended to limit dairy products in their diet as their bodies have a natural tendency to develop insulin resistance and the excess consumption can lead to excess production of insulin. It is recommended to have cow’s milk, curd, yogurt or paneer.
