My Daughter has this and she also found out she had a growth on her thyroid and adrenal gland....they are watching and following both close.
She went on a strict diet and exercise routine followed by metformin and Acupuncture.She also has on occasion seen a natural-path for health issues.Western Medicine is NOT the Only way to seek Help.....sound like you may be helped by looking outside the Box.I hope you find some relief soon!

Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear sandyw: Thanks for the reminder that a naturopathic doctor (ND) can also attempt to treat PCOS with a strict/healthy diet and daily exercise. NDs are often more proactive about these treatments than MDs. In some states NDs may not be able to prescribe the medication, metformin, so a woman with severe PCOS might want to have a MD who would be willing to work with her naturopath. We hope that your daughter will derive great benefit from her combined program. Also, that she does not have thyroid nor adrenal masses.

Yours,
Jane
