Summary:

The Diagnosis and Functional Management of PCOS

Polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, is one of the most common female endocrine disorders, affecting between 8-10% of reproductive age women. This condition affects thousands of women each year and leads to many complications, including infertility. COS is often recognized by changes in the menstrual cycle and androgenic like change such as abnormal hair growth. The diagnosis of PCOS is complex and requires a thorough assessment of the patient and understanding of the causes of this condition.

At the cornerstone of this condition is often metabolic dysfunction associated with poor glucose handling, which can lead to increased cardiovascular and diabetic risk. It is well known that this metabolic dysfunction is manageable through both pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods. As a result, proper diagnosis of this condition is crucial to satisfactory outcomes and often not satisfied with traditional assessment methods. Therefore some of the predisposing factors to PCOS are often disregarded. Such factors include micronutrient deficiencies and endocrine imbalance beyond elevated androgens.

As the patient population age for this condition is the menstruating female, the likelihood of this condition presenting to most practices is high. Thus, it becomes even more important for the practitioner to have a grasp of the recent knowledge on this topic.

The following points are reviewed in this webinar:

  • Clinical and laboratory diagnosis of PCOS
  • Connection between PCOS and insulin resistance at the cellular level
  • Real links of PCOS to other chronic diseases
  • Functional evaluation of micronutrient deficiencies and the link to PCOS and both infertility and resistant weight loss
  • Pharmacological, supplemental, nutritional and lifestyle therapies to help reverse PCOS
