Sindhu S. | PA. Raajeswari

Abstract: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is considered as a hormonal disorder of premenopausal women characterized by hyperandrogenism and chronic anovulation. It is believed that Insulin Resistance (IR) is the root of PCOS. Hence to treat IR, Low Glycemic Index foods were identified and formulated to six variations from which the highly acceptable mix was standardized using organoleptic evaluation and statistical analysis. The standardized (Lo-GI) mix was then subjected to nutrient analysis, shelf life study and Glycemic Index analysis. The findings of the study revealed that the ingredients used in Lo-GI mix which are available at our doorsteps are suitable foods with low Glycemic Index for adolescent girls with PCOS
