Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Prediabetes: My Story
Sixteen years ago, I was a 20-year-old, living on brown sugar Pop-Tarts (68 carbs) and cranberry juice (28 carbs). I gained 30 lbs in my first three years of college, weighing 165 lbs on a 5’8” frame. With every shower and brush, my hair fell out. I had increasing amounts of facial acne, much worse than when I was 16. Most notably, I was ALWAYS hungry. I ate baby-sized bean burritos (84+ carbs) chased with a Cold Stone creations (46+ carbs) and could always eat more.
