Author(s):

Abstract:
Dietary and lifestyle modification play an important role in the management of PCOS. Nutrition education intervention play critical role to bring in these changes, but very few women with PCOS are receiving nutrition education. Knowledge related to this condition among women is also unknown. The purpose of this study is to assess nutrition knowledge, impart nutrition education, to study the impact and explore their relationship with socio-economic status. Case-control study design was followed. The results reveal significant positive correlation between nutrition knowledge at baseline of respondents and education of parents. Respondents demonstrated poor nutrition knowledge at baseline. There was significant increase in knowledge, attitude, practice scores from baseline to 90th day in spite of the reduction from 45th to 90th day. This implies that programs targeting nutrition education and behavior modification are needed to improve the management and mitigation of PCOS-related symptoms among women.
