Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Polycystic ovary and syndrome (PCOS) affects 1 in 10 women in the UK. It is an endocrine disorder where women of reproductive age have androgen access i.e. higher levels of male hormones. Symptoms of PCOS range from psychological (anxiety, depression, body image concerns) reproductive (irregular menstruation, excess hair, infertility, pregnancy complications) and metabolic features (Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, type II diabetes, cardiovascular risk) and others factors such as struggling with the weight, acne or oily skin and thinning of hair.
Although there is no cure for PCOS, symptoms can be managed. Here at Vitality Dietitian we have a holistic approach to managing your PCOS symptoms. We can help you by working with you on your diet, exercise, lifestyle and supporting supplements.
Our facilities are attached to an onsite Aesthetic Clinic called The Amber Clinic.
Our extended aesthetic services at The Amber Clinic offer treatments to manage excess PCOS hair with laser hair reduction or electrolysis hair removal, facials or chemical peels to help manage acne appearance and oily skin as well as hair treatments to enhance the appearance of your hair.

For a woman food and nutrition in the days and weeks before embryo development undoubtedly, impacts the health of your new baby into its adult life. Improving your nutritional status in this time frame for a successful pregnancy and healthy child is imperative
For a man, nutrition affects sperm quality. This will affect how well sperm will swim and how readily they are able to fertilise with the egg. What a man eats today will impact his sperm quality and quantity in 90 day’s time.
So it is important for both men and women to eat a healthy diet for many months before trying for a baby.
Simply maternal health impacts foetal programming. What this means is that what you eat as the pregnant mum on a day to day basis will affect your child’s health all the way into his or her adult life. It is therefore very important to acquire the knowledge on what you should and shouldn’t eat before, during, post pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding. This will ensure you give your baby the best start in life and keep your own health in check too.
Having trouble conceiving is a relatively common problem with couples. Factors that may influence fertility can be genetic, environmental and behavioural. There are numerous medical treatments that increase fertility and help conception but these can be invasive and expensive. In many cases simply improving your food and nutrition is an effective approach to increase fertility for women and men. Vitality Dietitian can help you optimise your health and nutrition to increase your chances of getting pregnant.

Cardiovascular disease refers to conditions that lead to narrowing or blocking of blood vessels that cause heart attacks, angina (chest pain) and or stroke. Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death and disability in England. Diet and lifestyle can prevent and modify the overall outcome of CVD. South Asian people living in the UK including Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankans can have 50% higher risk to premature death from coronary heart disease and stroke. I am South Asian myself. This is relevant to our Leicester community which has a high ethnic distribution of South Asian population and our social diet culture is not cardio protective at most times. High blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides, smoking, diabetes, excess weight are all risk factors that are interlinked. Your GP may suggest to start changing your diet and lifestyle before prescribing medication to help your symptoms- if you are on any medications you should inform us so we can help you accordingly. The dietary guidelines for improving these health parameters are very similar. Therefore at Vitality Dietitian we take a holistic approach and help you tweak your diet, exercise and lifestyle habits to optimise your heart health.
