Webinar: Weight-Inclusive Care for PCOS

Weight-Inclusive Care for PCOS

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder that is the leading cause of anovulatory infertility and a risk factor for long-term cardiometabolic complications. It is estimated that 5-10% of women worldwide have PCOS, and in the majority of cases nutrition therapy and weight loss are considered first-line treatment. Dietitians are often consulted for low-carbohydrate diets in PCOS management; more often than not, the referral reads “Weight Loss for PCOS.” 
Anyone who has personally experienced this condition or has worked with clients with PCOS knows that long-term weight loss is the exception, not the rule, but what else do we have to offer as nutrition experts?
In this 60-minute webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Essential knowledge of PCOS diagnosis, symptoms, reproductive implications, and long-term health risks.
  • Why the first-line treatment recommendation to lose “5-10% of body weight” is harmful for those with PCOS, and how to better support your clients with PCOS using a weight-inclusive approach.
  • Ethical considerations of weight loss for PCOS-related fertility challenges.
  • Evidence-based, weight-inclusive nutrition and wellness recommendations for PCOS management.
  • Recommended resources for dietitians and clients alike.
