Managing PCOS & reversing diabetes, achieving regular menstrual cycle without any medication.


Name: Naga Divya

Age: 30

Gender: Female

Profession: Student

Case History: Divya had been hoping to conceive, but was having trouble due to PCOS and other hormonal problems. She has had irregular periods for two years along with gastric issues. She gained weight quickly and developed facial breakouts. She was also pre-diabetic with high insulin resistance. Her fasting sugar levels were 109mg/dl with an HbA1c of 6.5%. She was on two metformin, each of 2000mg per day.

Her major goal was to get rid of all the health-related issues coming in the way of conception.

Approach by the best diabetes dietitian: By analyzing her condition, goals, needs and blood reports, it was important to maintain her blood sugar levels in order to eliminate the possibility of gestational diabetes in future. This was achieved by increasing insulin sensitivity through correct food choices and combinations. She was advised to check her blood sugar levels frequently so that eventually she can stop metformin.

In order to manage her PCOS, she was given a customized meal plan that placed a strong emphasis on regulating her hormone levels. Focusing on reversibility and sustainability, while addressing food combinations, amounts, and eating behaviours was the best strategy for Divya. To cure her acne, anti-inflammatory food choices were suggested. Her body had to go into the fat burning zone.

Keeping in mind that she was studying in Germany and had assignments, lectures and exams very often, she was given access to a variety of convenient, approachable, and palatable foods. We also suggested that she involve her husband in her journey because partner support is crucial for making lifestyle changes, particularly when one wants to start a family.


As a result, she quickly began to feel energized and light. She reduced her overall body fat whilst shedding 7 kg over the course of 1.5 months. Her mood swings reduced. She noticed a drastic change in her sleep pattern. Her HbA1c came down to 5.5% from 6.5%. Her medication was reduced to only 500mg of metformin per day. She was able to experience a peaceful sleep. This all led to a fixed menstrual cycle without any medications. She even noticed smooth menses.
