Dietitians, because of their unique role in developing long-term relationships with their patients, may be the first to recognize this syndrome. With this book, the first of its kind, health professionals will gain the necessary knowledge and training to work with the PCOS population:

• Recognize signs and symptoms of PCOS in adolescent and adult patients
• Learn evidence-based diet strategies to help women with PCOS improve their fertility, lose weight, and live better lives
• Obtain sample meal plans and resources for patients
• Learn which nutritional supplements are best to improve PCOS
• Understand the quality of life issues affecting women with PCOS and how they may be at a higher risk for developing eating disorders
• Recognize nutritional concerns that PCOS women have during pregnancy, lactation, and the postpartum period
• Understand the importance of effective diet strategies for women with
PCOS as they age
