PCOS can improve with acupuncture treatment. More research looks into the mechanism of it. One of the lead researchers in PCOS and acupuncture Dr Elisabet Stener-Victorin from Sweden has long suspected that acupuncture may play a role in regulating blood glucose levels and helping with insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is one of the features of PCOS. This study put the theory to test.
The study revealed acupuncture increases whole-body glucose uptake during and after stimulation in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. See the abstract and a full text of the study below.
