Dr. Gerard Honore
Fertility Medicine 29 years experience
Can't get rid of: For women with pcos who are overweight, some weight loss will help with the complaints and symptoms. But this does not make it go away. Half of women with pcos are not overweight, and this is not an option for them. See a good obg or a rei for further help.
Dr. Michael Rothman
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
Nutritional Rx: Pcos is caused by high estrogen (e2)combined with high Insulin which then transforms e2 into testosterone. Excess carbs can elevate both Insulin (via stimulation of pancreas) and e2 (via competitive inhibition of glucoronidase enzyme) a low carb diet reduces both Insulin & e2 thus positively impacting this metabolic disease. Avoid fried foods, veg oils, soy.
