What is the best diet for a woman with pcos, no thyroid , and pvd with severe pain with activity?

I don't know what "no thyroid" means; either you have no thyroid problem, or you have no thyroid. Your doctor can analyze which it is and treat it if indicated. ...Read more

I have developed a swollen face since puberty.I have pcos.My thyroid and cortisol are normal. What could be the reason for this swollen face?

I have developed a swollen face since puberty.I have pcos.My thyroid and cortisol are normal. What could be the reason for this swollen face?

PCOS: Polycysitic ovaries will cause weight gain and a "swollen face." I believe you are also probably functionally hypo-thyroid, even though your blood tests are "normal." Thyroid blood tests are generally a waste of blood. You need Metformin and the herb Berberine for PCOS (500 mg of each, 3 times daily). Get Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness. ...Read more

Pituitary enlargemen: One possible explanation is an enlargement of the pituitary gland and the cells that make a hormone called prolactin. This hormone is normally increased in pregnancy and breastfeeding. If elevated at other times, the symptoms you describe along with a decrease in the range of vision, especially laterally, can also be noted.

Hair has been falling a lot since starting college. It is noticeably thinner and also very very oily. Was on birth control 9+ months but stopped suddenly, also have PCOS and anxiety. Thyroid was ruled out, normal bloodwork. Possible causes/solutions?

PCOS off BC: PCOS is a condition where the ovaries off BC tend to make a lot more androgens which can contribute to hair loss and acne. New stressors like college can also contribute to hair loss, and poor diet (all you can eat college meal plans) do not help much either as most college students gain weight making PCOS worse. People who get worse off BC should probably restart their BC to control symptoms. ...Read more
