Has anyone been referred to see an endocrinologist after being diagnosed with PCOS?
My doctor referred me to the one they work very closely with. I finally had my second meeting and they put me on a specialized diet based on my symptoms and diseases.
I have hypothyroidism, PCOS and I am a type II diabetic.
Just wondering if anyone else had any experience with them? She did my body analysis and I have 150.7 lbs of lean body mass and they want me to go from 45% body fat to 27%.
Basically the diet she put me on is a phase diet, for the first three weeks there are no starchy carbs only veggies and fruits. Protein with every meal and no dairy except some cottage cheese which apparently counts as a protein.
After the three weeks she says I'll be able to incorporate small amounts of whole grains back into my diet. And right now I'm limited to four types of fruits but that will also expand when I'm past the first phase.
According to her the first phase is just a cleansing phase which is why it's so restrictive.
If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.
