Practical tools to help me take control of my body and my life,

Thank you for this book. First, I'd like to say that after having been diagnosed with PCOS 12 years ago, much research has been done providing more guidance and understanding for women, as well as physicians. I have a better understanding of what's going on in my body. This is both inspiring and empowering,
The diet portion is most helpful. Again, more tools.
One section that would help young women recently diagnosed with PCOS is a comprehensive list of tests and blood work to get.
One other comment is to directly tie the medical issues with specific foods or vitamins we can take to help that. In the event blood work comes back with deficiencies, we can look in the book and have specific instructions on how we can help ourselves.
Thank you again for your time compiling the research and diet program. I appreciate your efforts to not only understand PCOS, but to help us understand it as well.

Thanks so much for your comments!
As comprehensive as the diet ebook is, it is not a complete review of the complex aspects of this disorder.
We're working hard to solve this problem. I agree 100% that women suffering with polycystic ovary syndrome need a lot more information and a lot more guidance. That certainly includes the area of lab testing.
We are also taking a hard look at exercise, the emotional aspects of this disorder, the role of specific supplements for certain aspects of PCOS, and much more.
We're now working on at least one program that will provide a holistic method of dealing with this disorder. It's clear that a piecemeal approach, or sole reliance on pharmaceuticals, is not effective in removing the causes or eliminating the long term consequences of this disease. If anyone wants to know more about this, we always announce new programs or products in our free newsletter. So it's a good idea to subscribe to it.
Getting back to the diet for a moment. I've recently reviewed dietary trends in the US. It's very discouraging. We are simply eating too much of the wrong foods. And it's killing us! Just look at our kids. They are getting fatter than ever. But worse than that, they are, for the first time in human history, getting "adult" diabetes. This is very sad. But we are all affected. There are some doctors who refer to PCOS as "diabetes of the ovaries." Of course, many of these women do develop diabetes eventually. There are plentiful medical research studies showing a direct connection between what we eat and the diseases we see all around us, including diabetes as well as polycystic ovary syndrome.
So the diet is always the first place to start.
