Join me as I sit down with Caitlin Johnson, a seasoned PCOS warrior and dietitian who transformed her personal struggles into a mission to help others. Diagnosed with PCOS herself at 18, Caitlin has devoted the better part of a decade to treating women with this condition in her private practice. Her journey includes personal battles with infertility, leading to the birth of her three children, and the creation of invaluable resources like the PCOS app and PCOS formularies.
In this episode, we’re going deep into the intricate world of PCOS, insulin resistance, weight loss, and fertility. Caitlin will share her insights on how hormonal imbalances, lifestyle choices, and even medications can impact our health and fertility journey. So grab a cup, settle in, and let’s dive into this empowering conversation with Caitlin Johnson.
