Abstract:
Despite of increasing prevalence of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in women of reproductive age and its health impact, studies regarding impact of nutrition education intervention are limited. Hence the present study was taken with an objective to assess the impact of education intervention on knowledge and practices of women with PCOS. The study was conducted in 4 hospitals of Hubli – Dharwad cities of Karnataka state. Based on the availability and willingness of subjects to participate in the intervention, 15 subjects were enrolled in the study by visiting outpatient department of the hospitals. Nutritional education intervention was given to the subjects in 2 sessions, with a gap of fifteen days between each session. The results showed that before intervention majority of the subjects belonged to less than 30 percent knowledge and practice score category, but after intervention none of them scored less than 50% scores. The classification of intervention group showed that there was significant (@ 5%) increase in knowledge and practices after intervention. Thus nutrition education intervention is very effective on improving the knowledge and practices of women with PCOS and management of the disease.
