Summary Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is a common endocrine disorder that affects as many as one in 15 women. The symptoms often begin in adolescence and include weight problems, lack of regular menstruation, and excessive amounts of male hormones. While the causes are unknown, insulin resistance, diabetes, hirsutism, and obesity are all strongly correlated with PCOS. What Nurses Know PCOS sheds light on this common condition and its symptoms. Well organized and clearly written, it gives readers all the information they need and want, including who gets PCOS and why; different types of treatments, both traditional and alternative; dealing with body image issues; complications; coping strategies; and more. Sidebars and boxes call attention to new research findings and topics of particular interest. Additional resources include online tools and PCOS-related websites, as well as lists of support groups.
Contents Living with polycystic ovarian syndrome -- What is happening and why -- Getting a diagnosis -- Management of PCOS: The basics -- Lifestyle changes -- Management of PCOS: Medications -- Dealing with body image issues -- Big three; Diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer -- Mental health -- Becoming a family -- Looking ahead.
