Living with PCOS?
PCOS can be a worrying diagnosis. Symptoms include irregular periods, higher levels of male hormones, excess hair growth and acne. While weight is not part of the diagnostic criteria for PCOS, many women do struggle to keep their weight down due to the 'hungry hormones' produced by the underlying insulin resistance.
Changing your Diet and Lifestyle is a very effective way to control your PCOS symptoms. If you suspect your daughter or maybe yourself has PCOS, it's so important that you are assessed properly by an endocrinologist and educated by a dietitian who understands PCOS.
