Lifestyle modification is widely considered to be the cornerstone of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) treatment. However, 45% of women with PCOS have reported that they have never been provided information about lifestyle management. This highlights a significant gap in knowledge and is reflective of the lack of evidence-based guidance for lifestyle modification.
