Study - Effects of Low Carb Diet on PCOS (which I have)

by John C Mavropoulos,William S Yancy, Juanita Hepburn, and Eric C Westman

Excerpt from Discussion Section:
"This pilot study showed that adherence to a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet led to improvement in body weight, percent free testosterone, LH/FSH ratio, fasting serum insulin, and symptoms in women diagnosed with PCOS over a six-month period. Further research is needed to determine if the benefits were from weight loss or from carbohydrate restriction specifically."
