Our Mission

PCOS Together's mission  is to improve our understanding of health outcomes and  health care in women with and without  PCOS. The focus is on  women with and without PCOS in Alberta, Canada.

Our Research

PCOS Together is a research program aimed at understanding the health status and  improving the health and health care of women with PCOS. To do this we are trying to understand the health risks and long term health outcomes in women with PCOS. We have found that women with PCOS in Alberta are at 2 and 3 fold higher risk for developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  We are establishing methods to detect early disease risk in women with PCOS. We are also undertaking clinical interventions to treat high-risk women with PCOS in the prevention of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Our Studies

We have several studies that you can learn more about:

  1. Heart health in women with and without PCOS  (we are currently not recruiting for this study)
  2. Understanding health care and nutrition services in women with PCOS  (we are currently not recruiting for this study)
  3. Health outcomes in women with and without PCOS  (we are currently not recruiting for this study)
  4. Fish oil-metformin improves blood lipids in high-risk women with PCOS  (we are currently not recruiting for this study)
