Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder affecting women. Generally, health websites say PCOS affects between 5-10% of the population. However, recent studies have shown that is is more likely one in five women – or over half a million Australian women of child-bearing age.

Symptoms can be embarrassing and deeply depressing. The best way of managing the syndrome is through permanent lifestyle changes – like daily exercise and a low G.I. diet – as well as medication.

For most patients, Insulin Resistance is the underlying cause of PCOS. Yet, many doctors are unaware of the link and fail to conduct tests to test their patients for this crucial information.

You may be newly diagnosed and wanting to know that you are not alone or perhaps are looking for more information about how you can manage PCOS better.
