Any new and better ways to treat PCOS than just birth control pills, Metformin, diet&exercise? Here in Wisconsin, Dr. Abbott has been studying monkeys and finding out lots of exciting things (such as it starts in utero when the mother's glucose levels are just slightly elevated; it is not caused by too much food/too little exercise. In fact, PCOS changes the metabolism so fat is not burned efficiently during sleep or exercise.)
