Frustrated with PCOS Book

I didn't find the book to be real helpful. I have been diagnosed with PCOS; however, I don't have cyst on my ovaries and I do have normal regular cycles.

The book does not touch a lot on women who are not overweight....

I am really frustrated. I have been prescribed metformin by a quack, and not I am taking birth control pills in an effort to bring my hormones in balance. My testosterone is within "norm"; however, my LH is a lot higher than my FSH.

I exercise and eat right, so it's a little frustrating reading the book, and I'm already doing everything your book suggests. I continue to have facial hair and thinning hair on my scalp.

What can I do?

Editor's comments: The problem with a book is that it doesn't apply equally to every single person because each of us is very unique. You need to go beyond what is discussed in the PCOS diet book and consult with a very experienced health professional who has the time and ability to do an in-depth diagnostic workup with you and then develop a customized treatment program based on lab results and other clinical findings.

I might suggest you consult with an endocrinologist and also a licensed naturopathic physician. That will give you two different perspectives. You can then make your own determination as to what is best for your unique circumstances.

You said you were diagnosed as having PCOS. How do you know that's your problem? Different doctors have different opinions as to exactly what polycystic ovary syndrome is.
