Of all of the symptoms I had, the beginnings of hair loss was the one that kicked my butt into gear. I just... I just couldn't go bald.
I'm sure you've read about different diet approaches - I combined a particular shampoo (Avalon Organics Biotin B-complex Thickening Shampoo) with fiercely watching my diet. The blood sugar had to stay stable. I was also drinking FertiliTea with a cinnamon stick, which kept me having regular periods (and probably by extension moderated androgens. Just a guess.)
My hair is good now - no thin spots. And obviously I am not having fertility problems anymore, either.
For the first time in my life, I believe that I can be slender, fit and toned. I always just thought that didn't apply to me. Why?
