Susan is currently involved in conducting research into the area of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). PCOS affects between 5-10% of women in the UK of reproductive age and is relatively under researched, particularly regarding lifestyle management. Common features of PCOS are abdominal obesity, infertility and an increased risk of developing diabetes in later life.
The study maps the treatment and referral routes for women diagnosed with PCOS in South West London. The results of this research will contribute towards a better understanding of this disease and to increase awareness of this relatively common condition.
