5 – A Patient’s Guide to PCOS – Interview with Dr. Walter Futterweit
I am thrilled to share the recording of my conversation with Dr. Walter Futterweit from earlier this month. Dr. Futterweit was a godsend to me early on in my PCOS journey. His book, A Patient’s Guide to PCOS, literally changed my life and outlook on my PCOS diagnosis. It took me 13 years of visiting various doctors’ offices to finally get a diagnosis of PCOS. If I had read this book when I was 18, it would have saved me years of heartache, anxiety and confusion. Reading A Patient’s Guide to PCOS is equivalent to a two hour consultation with one of the nation’s “Top Docs.” Dr. Futterweit empowers you to take charge of your health. He inspired me to become a “PCOS Diva”! Dr. Futterweit has devoted 37 years to the study of PCOS and its complications. In addition to his private practice in NYC, he is also a Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. He was one of the early pioneers in the study of women with PCOS. Listen in and you’ll hear our discussion of recent PCOS research, androgenic alopecia (PCOS related hair-loss and more.
