This week we are talking about Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Andropause as they relate to the gut.
We will discuss the underlying mechanisms of PCOS including androgen dominance, obesity, and insulin resistance. Also, we will discuss Andropause as it relates to males having lower testosterone and elevated estrogen levels, and why taking testosterone is not always the best fit for male patients.
Then we will tie in the gastrointestinal tracts relationship to one of the key mechanisms for both of these disorders, obesity. Tune in if you or a loved one suffers with PCOS or Andropause, and feel free to direct your questions to us so that we can answer them live!
