PCOS University: Information and Treatment of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Have your periods been irregular? Are you having a hard time losing weight?
Do you have hair where you don't want it or acne when you shouldn't?
Do you have a young daughter with symptoms similar to those described
above? Are you finding it difficult to conceive?
The cause of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is unknown but experts do agree
that it is the result of an underlying hormonal imbalance, mainly excess
adrogens (male hormones that women also make) made by the ovaries. In
fact it is believed that as many as 1 in 10 women in child-bearing years
could be affected by PCOS and that even girls as young as age 11 could
have the syndrome. The number one treatment most recommended by physicians
are diet and lifestyle changes.
Emerging research has shown a number of nutritional supplements that can
be helpful for women experiencing the symptoms of PCOS. Those supplements
are Myoinositol, Fish Oils and Vitamin D. You can read more about these
