I discovered that Europe and the US have different ways of diagnosing PCOS. Some diagnoses go by symptoms (which is an unreliable method), while others do ultrasound checking (more common in Europe) to actually see the cysts on the ovaries. In addition to hormonal tests, I would recommend doing an ultrasound with a trustworthy doctor to see if indeed you have PCOS, and how severe it is (depending on the number of ovarian cysts).
Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes].
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
