Skeletal-looking, very thin women, eating little food that is not enough to supply the required energy for their day-to-day activities, are the ones who get the pre-menstrual tension and pain. This is otherwise called PMT.
Those who eat well normally do not get the pre-menstrual tension and pain. None of the obese women get any PMT.
All it requires is to make sure that the sufferer has enough energy for her normal work as well as to meet the extra demand that is required during the time of menses.
As an immediate help, a sufferer has to take glucose drink (2 heaped teaspoons, equivalent to 10 grams of glucose, in 250 ml of water) with food, three times a day for two days before the expected date of menses, and continue likewise for the next two days after the start of the menses.
Since the glucose would supply the woman the extra energy, she would not suffer any PMT (or pain) at all.
The woman should not depend upon this easy method for overcoming PMT all the time. Instead, she must start eating more energy-giving food on a regular basis.
Rice, potato, and several such carbohydrates would make good diet for her.
The pain-killer drugs may not be needed any more.
