    I have done alot of research on D-chiro Inositol and Myo-Inositol for PCOS. I have PCOS myself, and am currently treating it with DCI and Myo-Inositol. I have put together my research on this in this post, and would you add this link to your page?

    Thank you Amanda, you’ve done a great deal of research on the inositols and you obviously spend a great deal of time helping other women learn about it. Well done! I would be honoured to include your information. Keep up the good work.
