Hello, I'm also from Australia.
Where is this doctor located??? PLEASE say Melbourne...
I've had PCOS since I was 23 (diagnosed then) and things have progressively become much worse. My cholesterol is going through the roof, I have high prolactin and most other things aren't "normal" either. I've been to see a few GPs and specialists, and they just seem to shrug their shoulders (my immune system isn't so good either). I've been referred to an endocrinologist, however I have to wait 4 months to get an appointment (some aren't even taking new clients... does that mean that patients have no expectation of ever getting better
). I was feeling very depressed today, but then I decided to have a look at the McDougall site again (I came across it not too long ago).
I am really glad that I have found this forum, because I've been indoctrinated to believe that carbs are bad for PCOS insulin resistance (although I might add that my fasting glucose is normal). I am very happy for those of you that have reversed this terrible condition. I have complete faith that all conditions can be alleviated with this way of eating.
It would be nice to see a doctor that supports and promotes this way of life. Please if you can help me, I'd appreciate their contact details.
