Dr. Wilshire is one of the leading physicians in the field of fertility, but one of only a handful nationwide who actually implores a controlled-carbohydrate approach (or "nutrient-dense" as he likes to refer to it) with his mostly overweight patients who are having trouble getting pregnant. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a spouse who just happens to be the most popular low-carb blogger on the planet living under the same roof, too (she even brags on hubby today in this blog post about my interview with him)!

Dr. Wilshire is certainly on the cutting edge of the latest scientific data regarding carbohydrate-restriction as it relates to the child-bearing health of his patients. Why do you think low-carb living hasn't caught on yet among his colleagues and do you think there will be more people like Dr. Gil Wilshire turning to this healthy nutritional approach in the future of reproductive care? Tell me what you think about treating PCOS, obesity, and infertility with a low-carb diet.

Ironically, it was my PCOS that first lead me to low carb living about 10 years ago. Team of experts #1 diagnosed me with a minor case of PCOS at age 31, Team of experts #2 put me on Metformin about a year later (which was dreadful) but they also suggested that there was a connection between insulin resistance and PCOS. At that time a low carb diet stabilized my cycles somewhat but ultimately it was IVF (with the help of Team of Experts #3!) that turned me into a mother of twins 6 years ago.

I cannot help but believe there is a connection between my PCOS, Insulin Resistance and my inability to get pregnant without modern technology. And it may be more widely accepted now but it certainly wasn't when I was in the thick of things. In fact the use of Metformin to treat me was considered "experimental" by a top Reproductive Endocrinologist at a major NYC hospital

Thank goodness for the advances of modern medicine and Drs who think a little outside the box.
