Conditions, Women's Health Services
At Zest Clinic, we understand that dealing with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) can be challenging. This complex hormonal disorder affects one in ten women of childbearing age, but with the right care and guidance, you can lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
PCOS is characterized by enlarged ovaries that contain small collections of fluid, known as follicles, resulting in an imbalance in a woman’s hormone levels. Symptoms may include irregular periods, excessive hair growth, acne, and weight gain. If left untreated, PCOS can lead to serious health complications such as infertility, diabetes, heart disease, and endometrial cancer.
What to Expect at Zest Clinic
From your initial consultation to ongoing management of your condition, you can expect compassionate, personalized care from our team of experts. We begin each patient’s journey with a comprehensive assessment to understand their specific symptoms and health history.
Assessment and Diagnostic Techniques
Our advanced diagnostic techniques include ultrasounds and blood tests, which help us accurately detect PCOS. We look for physical signs of the syndrome, and check for elevated levels of androgens (male hormones) and insulin in the blood.
Personalized Management Plan
Once diagnosed, we work closely with you to develop a personalized management plan tailored to your unique needs and lifestyle. This may involve recommendations for lifestyle changes like a personalised diet plan and physical activity program, medication to manage symptoms and regulate periods, or in some cases, surgery.
Ongoing Support and Follow-up Consultations
Our commitment to your health doesn’t end with a diagnosis. We offer ongoing support and follow-up consultations to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plans as necessary. We are here to answer any questions and provide guidance every step of the way, helping you manage your condition and improve your quality of life.
Early Detection and Management
At Zest Clinic, we strongly believe in the power of early detection and management. The sooner PCOS is diagnosed, the better the chances of preventing serious health complications. We encourage all women to be proactive about their health and seek medical advice if they notice any potential symptoms of PCOS.
