PCOS: The Genetics, The Typing and The Future
Listen now
Description
In today’s podcast, I’m joined by my colleague Dr. Fiona McCulloch ND and author of 8 Steps To Reverse Your PCOS. Fiona is a passionate advocate for better research and treatment of women and people with PCOS and in today’s episode, we break down the impact of epigenetics, the different types of PCOS, and the future directions that we both hope to see this endocrine condition go in.  PCOS is the most commonly diagnosed hormone condition in women and presents with acne, hair loss, unwanted hair growth, and irregular menstrual cycles. Where does this condition come from? Fiona and I discuss the genetic basis of PCOS, and how the development of PCOS likely starts in the womb.  We also share the challenges in the research with subclassifications of PCOS and the challenges of treating both lean and classical PCOS. We share how to decide if the research applies to your “type” and why an individualized approach to PCOS is the way of the future.  If you’ve wondered about a PCOS diagnosis, or have a formal diagnosis from your practitioner, this episode will give you direction and hope that you can make a difference in your hormonal future.  Dr. Finoa McCulloch owns an integrative medical clinic in Toronto Ontario called White Lotus ( Whitelotusclinic.ca).
