"Welcome to my PCOS Blog" I'm Christie, 48, married to a much younger man and we have four dogs as our kids...

My personal crusade is to inform and educate women, men and the medical professionals on PCOS... Why? Knowledge is POWER! The info will save your life or someone you may or may not know...

PCOS is an endoctrine disorder affecting your whole body as a hormone imbalance...The PCOS symptoms wreak HAVOC through your entire body... Symptoms can be mild to extreme, one to numerous symptoms... You can be thin to obese...

My PCOS Journey started by a lingerie shop owner stating "You look like me"... We talked about PCOS a while...I kept mentally checking off all the symptoms she mentioned... My symptoms are mild, 28 of the 48 i found... I saw my doctor the next week, had a battery of tests done, researched everything i could find on PCOS... My diagnosis was PCOS, Metabolic Syndrome, Insulin Resistance (IR), Perimenopause, Hypertension, Rosacea and Preborderline Diabetes... My "Miracle Pill" is Glucophlage XR... On it i get thinner than when i was in 6th grade!

My blog posts are of info you need and should know...I urge you to pass the PCOS & Syndrome X word on... Yes, men get a version of PCOS called Syndrome X...

Feel free to email me privately...

Knowledge is POWER!
