I am a college student and I was diagnosed with PCOS my junior year of high school. Lets just say that it has not been the easiest thing to deal with. After going to Dr. Futterweit once I was diagnosed I was able to make some minor lifestyle changes that really improved the way that I felt. Then I read his book and was further able to improve the way I felt because not only are diet plans and exercise regimes discussed but the disease itself is explained thoroughly. I would recommend this book to anyone who has PCOS because just learning what the disease is about helps to put you on the right tract to reverse it. If I can make these changes as a college student eating cafeteria food all day anyone can do it. Good Luck!

I've had PCOS for several years and I've read book upon book, article upon article, and this is the first book that I've found that is comprehensive and provides treatments that I haven't heard of before.

Dr. Futterweit sounds like the gold standard for doctors: Knowledgable, dedicated, and compassionate. I wish I could have him as my own doctor.

For me this book wasn't particularly helpful - it focused so much on weight loss and maintaining a healthy diet and exercise - if you're not obese but still suffer from PCOS, it doesn't offer much help. Some valuable insight, and more knowledge is always good, but I wish they had mentioned it was primarily targeted at overweight PCOS patients - I wouldn't have wasted my money.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone suffering from PCOS. It is very easy to understand and to the point. It gives encouragement and helpful suggestions and ways to improve symptoms.

I have suffered from PCOS for 25yrs. Several DR's telling me I will never conceive a child without medical help or never. After 15yrs of trying to conceive including metformin and 2 misscariages I stopped. In 07' after 15yrs and 2 lost pregnancies i conceived with no medical help. We have healthy 1yr old. Thinking I was "cured" we started trying again. My PCOS symptoms became worse with no conception occuring. A new DR said read PCOS understanding and reversing. U never get rid of PCOS. This book has been outstanding in understanding what is going on and how to maintain symptoms and successful conceiving tips. I recommend this book to all who are frusterated with their symptoms and who maybe trying to conceive.

This book helped make sense of all of the things I have complained about all my life. I wasn't diagnosed with PCOS until age 34 after my husband and I had been trying for a baby for two years. I had no idea that all this time there was answer for the infertility, weight problems, the facial hair, the infrequent periods and exhaustion. With a low fat/low carb diet, Metformin and the fantastic treatment by my Reproduction Endocronologist, I am finally losing weight and making progress in correcting my infertility. Ladies, don't walk, RUN to the RE. Only an RE is medically trained to treat PCOS.

It was so nice to find a current book on PCOS that covers SO much information. Dr's are learning more and more about the disorder all the time and this book holds all the newest up to date information. It really made me feel at ease and described all the health 'issues' PCOS can cause. There are other listed references in the book where you can learn more, including websites. Also it discusses a 'GI Friendly' diet and what to look for that will help. It's nice to know that I can recommend such a thorough, current book to other people.

This book is terrible. They go into so many pointless details instead of actually writing about how to help you. I honestly do not recommend.
