Is pcos curable completely?

It depends: The majority of cases of PCOS are associated with being overweight or obese causing insulin resistance and in such cases, losing significant weight (? 20 or more lb) can cause symptoms to disappear and periods to become regular but one has to keep the weight off to be "cured".

Hi Doctor. I have been diagnosed with PCOS last year. Can you please tell me if PCOS is at all curable?and what about Homeopathy and Unani treatments?

PCOS can improve: PCOS may be related to insulin resistance which affects hormonal balance leading to elevated androgens (testosterone) and then causes many of the symptoms we see. A low glycemic diet, daily exercise, zinc and chromium can improve this. Your doc may prescribe medications temporarily to help. In my experience, diet, exercise and avoiding chemicals that affect hormones (like BPA) are key. Good luck. ...Read more

Herbal supplements used to treat pcos may affect the liver as well. I would see a specialist and tell them all the things you have tried to manage the symptoms to find out the cause of the fatty liver. ...Read more
