    Did you cut out a bunch of calories from your diet and not replace them with something else?

    I minimize dairy...because it has IGF-1 which contributes to a low level of SHBG and higher insulin (I believe anyway, its been a long time since I read up on it)

    I've been vegan (dairy/meat free) for about 15 years and I'm convinced it has mitigated my PCOS symptoms. Before you go back on dairy, you might try improving your diet in general by eating more nuts and fresh fruit/veggies, whole grains and avoiding processed foods.

    Hi,

    I have read many articles about dairy and pcos, dairy being cited as bad for hormones for many reasons. I cut out dairy many years ago because I became allergic to it, for me it hadn't affected my pcos symptoms at all, I had pcos before and I still do, but I guess it is different for everyone, some peoples systems deal with foods in different ways.

    For anyone that wants to quit dairy it is important to make sure that the calories are made up from different foods and that you get enough calcium.
