PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome

Kind of curious if any of you have heard of it. My mother has PCOS (PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome) and has been trying for the last couple of years to no avail to lose weight (doing a variation of the ketogenic diet non-stop for about two years). She runs, eats right, and yup... it pretty much doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of difference. Just kind of curious if any of you have ever heard of PCOS, and if you had do you have any tips on how to help her? If you haven't heard of it don't bother replying... The same dietary rules don't apply to women with this disease? Whatever it is. (The lowfat route typically isn't applicable with women that have PCOS)

    Do a search for Dr Marilyn Glenville on the internet. She deals with many female illnesses particularly PCOS. She has written a book on it which you may find useful. Interestingly too the dietary advise is to reduce meat and eat more wholegrain and even soya which contains phytoestrogens. If a PCOS sufferer can manage to lose even 10% of their weight then many of the symptoms can subside. Chromium picolinate is also suppose to help in these cases as they help improve the insulin efficiency which is often reduced. (However, if she is taking metformin she must not take this)

    My mother has managed to lose some weight, and many if not all of the symptoms have subsided... Now she just wants to lose more fat and get it down to a decent level.
