In brief: Hormonal imbalances

Multiple follicles is a sign of high estrogen levels.
Estrogen can be biotransformed into testosterone via the enzyme aromatase. Aromatase enzyme is increased by high Insulin levels. A high carb diet will increase both Insulin (via stimulatlon of pancreas) and estrogen (via competetive inhibition of glucoronidase enzyme) low carb diet is beneficial to reduce estrogen and insulin.
