“PCOS, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, is the most common hormonal disorder of women in their reproductive years,” said reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Josh Hurwitz. “It can start as early as puberty and last all the way through menopause.”
Irregular periods, ovaries with numerous cysts, and slightly elevated testosterone levels lead to an imbalance of hormones with metabolic side affects.
“This is really the key,” said Dr. Hurwitz. “If you attack these and you help a woman manage the metabolic and nutritional aspects of PCOS, it will really go a long way towards health and wellness, hormonal fluctuations evening out, and sometimes fixing fertility issues of PCOS.”
