PCOS & Mood swings, food cravings

Published : Oct 11, 2021 4 mins read Updated On : May 03, 2023

Our mind and body are interlinked, changes in one can affect the other. PCOS Cysters generally have excess male hormone production, irregular menstruation periods, and ovarian cysts. These changes in the body can affect PCOS women mentally causing constant cravings, mood swings, anxiety and at times depression. PCOS can affect your reproductive and metabolic health, as well as cause a variety of symptoms.

While the exact origins of PCOS are unknown, genetics is thought to play a role, potentially alongside other health and lifestyle risk factors.

Mood Changes

PCOS has been linked to mood fluctuations, anxiety, and sadness. It's thought that aberrant brain chemistry and disruption of the brain-gut axis are to blame.

Female hormones can produce mood swings, especially at certain points throughout the menstrual cycle and it can be difficult to distinguish them from PCOS mood fluctuations.

PCOS, on the other hand, can cause your cycle to be disrupted by blocking ovulation, so if you're missing periods and experiencing mood swings, PCOS could be the cause.

Anxiety and sadness are both indications of a variety of other disorders, as well as illnesses in and of themselves. To figure out what's causing your mood problems, you and your doctor will need to look at your overall health and lifestyle, as well as any other symptoms you're experiencing.

Food cravings

Sugar cravings are a common symptom of PCOS, which is caused by insulin resistance.

PCOS affects women who have high insulin levels in their blood. Insulin can interfere with the activity of other appetite-regulating hormones, causing hunger. Sugar and processed carbs, in particular, can cause a sugar rush and crash cycle, which can lead to increased cravings.

Cravings associated with PCOS can be exceedingly harmful. Binge eating disorder is more common in people with PCOS. Obesity increases your chances of having a lot of food cravings, making weight loss more difficult.

Keep an eye out for indications that could indicate that your desires are insulin related.

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Irritability

  • Hunger-induced rage (also known as "hanger").

A weight loss plan is part of the lifestyle treatment for those who are obese and have PCOS, which is made more difficult when you are prone to food cravings. Here are seven strategies for avoiding food cravings:

  • Don't Forget to Eat

  • Sugary and processed foods should be avoided.

  • Concentrate on Protein

  • Don't Purchase Enticing Foods

  • Exercise on a regular basis

  • Ask yourself, ?If you're Hungry, or is it just a craving?

  • Take an Insulin Sensitizer if you're diabetic.

PCOS cannot be cured, but it can be treated to prevent it from worsening over time. This is possible with the right workout and diet. However, a diet alone will not provide you with the nutrients you need to manage PCOS, thus supplementation is always recommended.
