Fertility Experts: Winter Waistlines a Swelling Problem for Indianians Trying to Get Pregnant
Date:1/21/2008

Food, exercise choices may lower risk by almost 80 percent for those with

ovulatory disorders

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of New Year resolutions and American waistlines bulging ever outward, Indiana fertility experts are targeting lifestyles and diets as worsening culprits in preventing couples from conceiving.

Reproductive specialists say that January is traditionally a milestone month for infertile couples, in terms of making resolutions both to trim off holiday-related weight gains and to conceive some time in the New Year. In addition to requiring a perfect balance of reproductive hormones, healthy eggs and sperm, the fertility equation demands more attention than ever on maintaining healthy nutrition. The best chances of pregnancy, they say, includes a diet of the good fats found in whole dairy products plus regular exercise, as well as eliminating the obvious evils of nicotine, alcohol, and drugs.

"More and more research is supporting the idea that lifestyle and diet are a probable hindrance to fertility, and this is the time of year to be particularly focused on diet," said Laura Reuter, M.D., medical director at Midwest Fertility Specialists, the largest single group of reproductive endocrinologists in Indiana. "At the same time, it's becoming more of a necessity for us to preach the gospel of a healthy diet and regular physical activity, which is not always easy in the midst of winter."

"Recent research is unlocking more of the complex puzzles of diet and activity often surprising patients as to just how delicate the proper balance can be," said Laura Tritt, registered dietitian for Organic Health Services, a reproductive wellness center that works closely with patients of Midwest Fertility Specialists. "For example, low iron, too much or too little body fat, or even too much exercise can impair fertility," said Tritt.
