PCOS and Excessive Hair

I saw this online and thought I would share.

Food as therapy for the excessive hair growth and acne of PCOS?

Absolutely. One study reported that women who stayed on a low calorie diet for at least six months lost weight and reduced Insulin Resistance. Their levels of SHBG increased, which reduced the amount of free testosterone in their blood. As expected, the women reported a reduction in the severity of their hirsutism and acne symptoms.

Pretty cool really :)
