Happy for your patient!!
Weight does NOT cause PCOS.
You can have PCOS and be thin. You can be overweight and NOT have PCOS.
However, if you have PCOS, you can find that one of the issues is slow weight loss. Ironically, the best thing you can do for PCOS, aside from eating healthy, is to lose weight.
