Polycystic Ovary Syndrome : effects of different dietary approaches: a literature review (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Runt 5-10 % av kvinnor i fertil ålder har en diagnos av polycystiskt ovariesyndrom men ännu fler lider av syndromet utan en diagnos. Polycystiskt ovariesyndrom innebär att en kvinnas ena eller båda äggstockar är fyllda med cystor och att hon har en hormonstörning. Kosthållning har en betydande effekt på hur syndromet visar sig. Syfte: Se vad olika kostmetoder har för effekter på kvinnor med polycystiskt ovariesyndrom och vilken metod som är bäst. Metod: En litteraturstudie som analyserar tio vetenskapliga artiklar i fyra olika teman. Resultat: En hög-proteinkost, en kosthållning med lågt GI och ökad fysisk aktivitet ger alla tre positiva effekter på syndromet. En fettsnål kost ger mer negativa effekter än vad en fettrik kost ger. Studien visar att viktminskning också förbättrar syndromet. Slutsats: Mer forskning behövs om olika kostmetoders effekter på kvinnor med polycystiskt ovariesyndrom i större studiepopulationer och olika kostmetoder har olika effekter på hur polycystiskt ovariesyndrom visar sig.

Abstract [en]

Background: About 5-10 % of women in fertile age have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome diagnosis with many other women also having polycystic ovary syndrome without diagnoses. Polycystic ovary syndrome is a disease where a woman’s ovaries are filled with cysts, along with related hormonal disorders. Diets can help reduce the symptoms of this syndrome. Aim: See how various dietary approaches impacts on women with polycystic ovary syndrome and to see which approach is the best. Method: A literature review that analyzes ten different scientific articles. Four major themes were extracted from this review. Results: A high-protein diet, a diet with low GI and increased physical activity are three different approaches that are show to provide positive effects in people who suffer from this syndrome. Low-fat diets did not show positive effects. The study shows that the syndrome also becomes better with a weight loss. Conclusion: More research is needed on the various dietary approaches effects on women with polycystic ovary syndrome in larger study populations to identify the effects of different dietary approaches.
