My Big Fat Fabulous Life: Whitney Way Thore says she has about 30 cysts in each ovary

This week, My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore recommended a book called “Woman Code,” which gives dietary and quality-of-life tips to women suffering from “polycystic ovary syndrome”.

So a follower, who also has the condition, asked Whitney about how she was diagnosed. Thore replied:

“When I was 21 my OBGYN was looking at my chart — no periods, facial hair, balding, acne— and said “I think you have PCOS.” I’d never heard of it…she gave some blood tests and said that if I were insulin resistant that would confirm her diagnosis. I was. Since then I’ve also had several ultra sounds and I have about 30-ish cysts on each ovary.”
