#195 Fix your PCOS with Dr Nitu Bajekal

We have a packed episode today discussing what my guest describes as, the epidemic of PCOS. Dr Nitu Bajekal is a Senior Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Author and Board-Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician in the UK with over 35 years of clinical experience in women’s health. 

And today we’re talking about: 

how you can spot the signs of PCOS

Why PCOS costs billions in healthcare costs annually

Why women from ethnic minorities are at worse risk

We also discuss how 3 in 4 of those with PCOS remain undiagnosed, because of how complex a condition it is

We talk about Insulin Resistance

Oestrogen Dominance, and whether that’s a thing or not

The Oestrobolome

And how to avoid bloating when inching toward a more whole food plant based diet

As you can tell this episode is going to be packed with information, but you can also check out Nitu’s book, Living PCOS Free that she co-authored of with her daughter and nutritionist, Rohini Bajekal.
