PCOS is most severe in Asian and American females; both are found to be the most affected ones followed by Caucasian ones, which are further followed by the African ones. So, it’s necessary to know about the disease, its pathogenicity, symptoms and causes in females of different origin and what can be the preventive measures like dietary modifications and controlling other health conditions and other factors so as to avoid the disease or at least lowering the impact of the disease. Avoidance and early curing of the disease is the main motto of the research. Common symptoms of the disease include marked decrease in the female characters. Other symptoms like irregular or no menstruation, excess hairs on face, chest, stomach, thumbs, or toes, decrease in breast size, hair loss, acne, depression, weight gain, pelvic pain and infertility are also checked. Most commonly, it affects the females of reproductive age. This is one of the most widespread diseases across the world and if left untreated, may result in infertility and even uterine cancer and hence this study is done. This study focuses on the prevalence, management and dietary modifications of the disease.
