The importance of proper diet and nutrition
Maintaining a healthy BMI is associated with regular ovulation and increased ART success rates
Having a low carbohydrate, portion-control diet helps reduce insulin levels which supports weight loss
Getting 30 minutes of exercise helps lower insulin levels and optimizes fertility
Having adequate Omega-3 in your diet promotes cycle regulation and improves fertility
Getting enough micronutrients, especially antioxidants (i.e., ß-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E), increases the chance of getting pregnant and fosters a healthy pregnancy
Having a well-balanced healthy diet is one of the best ways a woman can prepare herself for pregnancy & fertility treatment.
Medical nutrition therapy can play a major role in management of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), insulin resistance and hormone balance.
It can put you on the right path to achieve a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI), which may affect your ability to conceive.
