NORWALK, Conn., March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OBGYN.net, a leading online community for medical professionals specializing in women's health, will be featuring a new series on the role of nutrition in women's health. Women are increasingly looking for less traditional therapeutic options for many disorders, and dietary recommendations can easily be incorporated into treatment plans for certain conditions.
Nutritional therapy is recognized as a complementary medicine, and most dietary advice is highly individualized. However, the science of nutrition can be applied more generally across patient populations when looking at how certain foods affect specific diseases and conditions, such as interstitial cystitis, polycystic ovary syndrome, and endometriosis. Offering physicians information about how nutrition can help ameliorate symptoms of specific conditions and improve the female body's overall functioning is the goal of this new series.
Some recent highlights include:
- Micronutrients, Bariatric Surgery, and the Obstetrical Patient: Women who have had bariatric surgery for weight loss require special care during pregnancy, particularly with assessment of micronutrient deficiencies and appropriate replacement. This article discusses which deficiencies are most common and recommendations for supplementation.
- Spice Up PCOS Therapies: The Role of Cinnamon: For patients with PCOS, lifestyle modifications that support weight loss and healthful eating remain key to improving symptoms. However, a common household ingredient also may help improve symptoms of the disorder. Find out here which foods are PCOS friendly and how cinnamon can be used to help treat patients with PCOS.
