I have extensive experience in managing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Australia.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a health issue affecting many women during their childbearing years. Unfortunately, a multitude is unaware that they have this complex condition.
- PCOS manifests metabolically, reproductively, and psychologically and can impact women throughout their lives.
- Unexpected weight gain and an irregular menstrual cycle can sometimes suggest the development of this hormonal disorder that results in enlarged ovaries with tiny sacs of fluid, also called cysts, on the outer edges of the ovaries.
- The hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS can increase the risk of infertility, diabetes, sleep disturbances, cancer, and depression.
Many women with PCOS find weight loss frustratingly challenging. I have developed a dietary and lifestyle chronic disease management plan to address this condition. My patients and I often achieve successful and sustainable improvements in body composition and blood sugar control through patience, diligence, and appropriate expectations.
