I wanted to start a thread on myo-inositol because it has studies on it with PCOS. I recently started it, I think I have a bad case of either insulin resistence or some kind of metabolic syndrome, because I have had gestational diabetes three times, along with being diagnosed with pcos almost 2 years ago. I started Myo-inositol with Choline a little over a week ago. It really is cutting my sugar cravings to almost nothing. WOW
But myo-inositol is not so expensive I can get it for around 12-15 $ a month and around $33 a month at the most. The studies on PCOS and myo inositol , one study with 2 grams (of inositol and folic acid combined) taken daily and one study with 4 grams myo-inositol taken daily. The results of the studies were so good, why dont mores cysters try this instead of D-chiro?

What is the best dose for Myo-Inositol?
The studies seem to be based on 2,000 mg or 4,000 mg. While there was one study on 200 mg, I recomend the 2 or 4,ooo mg dose for extra insurance that you will get all the benefits of Myo-I. Starting with 1,000 mg and gradually working your way up to the dose you choose is a good way to do it.
