Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the most common endocrine cause of infertility, significant weight gain and metabolic issues in young women. It affects millions of women: research suggests that up to 10% of reproductive aged women struggle with this disorder.
In addition to the short-term disturbances associated with PCOS, the long-term health implications are startling. Early treatment is the key to preventing serious health risks. Women who believe they may have PCOS need a guide to help them understand the disorder, know what tests to ask for, what the tests mean, and what treatments are available.
At Tree of Life Medical, we offer complete evaluation and provide treatment recommendations to help women with PCOS. We will utilize a step-by-step approach to educating you about healthy hormone balance, appropriate meal plans, exercise, and stress management. In addition, if a referral is needed for infertility treatments or diabetic education, we will work with you to find the best specialist as well as coordinate care to ensure the best possible outcome.
