Been experiencing auto-immune type issues since birth. Recently was finally diagnosed with PCOS. Some things, like diet, have helped so much already. I am completely rid of two huge lipomas since cutting out carbs and sugar, am back at my ideal weight and haven't climbed back up in a year, no longer almost pass out and go numb if I don't eat every few hours, have had my gross yellow and brittle nails grow back healthy and pink, have improved my chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, and am getting sick less often. I was feeling pretty optimistic and happy there for a while. But, since winter has hit, I've had depression and anxiety hike back up, am having HUGE problems with chronic fatigue again, and my hair is falling out in clumps really badly. I know part of the problem is that with the holidays, carbs and sugar have been sneaking back into my diet, and I figure Vit D deficiency is at play due to the shorter days. The other PCOS threads are a bit dated, so posting a new shout out. Would love to hear how others are coping and any tricks for the winter months especially.
