#13 - NOURISH YOUR FLOURISH NUGGET | PCOS Awareness Month - Part III (The Diagnosis)
The Women's Health, Wisdom, and... WINE! podcast is a biweekly conversation with practitioners, providers, patients & healers about complex reproductive medicine & women's health challenges, the value of an integrative approach to these challenges, many of the women's health topics you're already thinking about & uncomfortable talking about & my personal favorite... WINE!
September is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month. As we prepare for season two of the podcast (with both audio AND visual components), we will be taking the opportunity to hyperfocus on PCOS, the most common endocrine (hormonal) disorder in women, this month. PCOS is associated with reproductive and mental health complications, metabolic dysfunction, and increased cardiovascular risk. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a polygenic condition that is often misdiagnosed and consequently "mistreated". This lifelong condition requires individualized adjustments to care throughout the lifecycle AND the road to healing requires consistent lifestyle changes.
In this episode, we recap a bit of Part II's focus on the signs and the symptoms while further discussing how an appropriate diagnosis is made by delineating the TYPES of PCOS, some other conditions that can often be mistaken for PCOS, and what other diagnoses can often "tag along" for the PCOS ride.
The hashtag for the podcast is #nourishyourflourish. You can also find our practice on the following social media outlets:
