Abstract

Background: Women with PCOS often have insulin resistance; they can produce insulin but it can’t be used effectively. They also have high levels of androgens which leads to an ovulation, irregular menstrual cycle, acne issues, hair loss, and hirsutism on the face and body. Insulin resistance occurs in 70-95% of people with PCOS. Lifestyle and hereditary can have an impact on insulin resistance, especially if a woman is overweight because of an unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity. Losing weight will often help to reduce symptoms, despite of any reason for the insulin resistance.
Aim: To determine the efficacy of cinnamon, exercise and counselling (Multi – interventional Package) on insulin resistance among young girls with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Methods: Experimental pre and posttest design was used in this study.150 PCOS young girls who had impaired glucose level were selected as study participants. self-administered questionnaire was used to collect the baseline data and all the study participants underwent OGTT(oral glucose tolerance test) at the beginning and also at 3rd and 6th month of the study. Their Fasting blood glucose and 2 hr blood glucose levels after consuming 75 grams of glucose were assessed. Girls who met with inclusion criteria were selected and they were partitioned into 3 groups, 50 in each group – control group (no intervention), experimental group 1 (all three interventions), experimental group 2 (selected interventions). Interventions were planned for 6 months. Post-test I, II were conducted after 3rd and 6th month respectively. Non probability Purposive sampling technique was used. consent was acquired from all the study participants.
Results: The Fasting and 2 hr glucose blood sugar levels of Control group were increased to 2.05% and 3.82% respectively, whereas in Experimental group 1 and Experimental group 2, the Fasting and 2 hr glucose blood sugar levels were reduced to 7.9% and 7%, 3.3% and 4.8% respectively. This shows that both the experimental groups shown reduction in the fasting and 2 hr glucose blood sugar level whereas the Experimental group 1 was found to be superior to other interventions.
Conclusion: This study focused on the beneficial role of multi interventional package(cinnamon tea, exercise program and counselling) in reducing the Fasting and 2 hr blood glucose levels among young girls with Polycystic ovarian syndrome. Hence, this study recommends the multi interventional package to reduce insulin resistance among young girls with PCOS.
