Weight Loss
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I lost good weight about 8 years ago or so on sticking to 50-75 carbs a day. High protein about 100 or more grams a day and 80-90 grams good fats. Well, few years later I got pregnant at 40!

Do Some Of You Have Weird Nails?
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Yesterday i discovered that my toenails are doing some weird thing. The new part of the nail is very hard, has ridges and is higher than the rest of the nail.
