Hi Dr. Jacobs,

Just a quick question, can a woman going through fertility treatments go on a diet and exercise to reduce weight?

 

Barry Jacobs, M. D. - November 20

Reasonable diet and exaercise programs are just fine. Most of my patients who are over weight are insulin resistant, and have polycystic ovaries. For them, restricting carbohydrate intake is an excellent dietary program.
Good luck.

Hi Dr. Jacobs,

I am PCO but not insulin resistant, however my Re put me on Metformin to see if it will lower my LH level, will a low carb diet still work? In the past I have had eating disorders (anorexia and bulimia) could that have anything to do with the disruption of ovulation or the PCO?

Thanks

Sarah
