Do you know that weight is one of the factors that can affect fertility? Unhealthy food intake, whether too little or too much, has been seen as a factor causing infertility. If you and/or your partner are overweight or obese, the chances of getting pregnant are lower compared to a person with normal weight. Overweight and obesity are characterized by excess body fat tissues. Excessive body fat mass seems to affect the secretion and metabolism of sex hormones. On the other hand, underweight can also impair the production of essential hormones in the reproductive system.
The best solution is diet and lifestyle modification to improve reproductive functions. Many people neglect the importance of eating healthily before pregnancy.
Proper nutrition enhances your reproductive health. NutriFertility is a one-on-one consultation with a nutritionist that takes a closer look at the patient’s medical history, current diet and infertility treatment plan to construct personalized recommendations to best help achieve optimal health and wellness. In the first session, an in-depth interview entailing health history with detailed questions and answers. The patient can bring in a food log and any medical records to this first session so that the nutritionist can immediately target on their specific needs. Together they will then create an individualized food plan and supplementation to help achieve the patient’s health goals without compromising their lifestyle.
