“Bringing uric acid levels down in women diagnosed with PCOS helps them to gain better control over their blood sugar, their blood pressure, and certainly their predilection for making increased levels of fat
and storing the fat that they do make.”
On today’s podcast, I am honored to interview Dr. David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, a board-certified neurologist, Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, and five-time New York Times bestselling author. He is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of nutritional influences in neurological disorders.
His most recent book- Drop Acid – explores the fascinating correlation between high levels of uric acid & an increase, or even a possible cause, in PCOS symptoms.
He explains that the elevation of uric acid is not just related to things like weight gain, increased blood sugar, and increased blood pressure, but is actually playing a causative role. This is a major breakthrough in the field of PCOS research.
