    Hi,
    I was wondering if any of you with polycystic ovarian
    disease (pcos) are taking the ZMA? I just
    got some but now am a little worried because
    it says it raises testosterone levels. My levels
    are low anyway but am just wondering if anyone
    else with PCOS is taking the ZMA?
    Thanks,
    Lynn

    Can't help you there, why not ask your doctor or the pharmicist. They would be able to help you.

    Hope you get some information.........

    After some researching, mainly on bodybuilding
    sites, it seems that the men are saying that
    it will raise their low levels to a normal level, if
    it even does raise it. It's so funny. I can hardly
    find any info on this for sleep. Quite a few
    bodybuilders were saying that they slept
    better while on it though! LOL

    Take Care,
    Lynn

    I take glucophage because I have insulin resistance that causes the PCOS. I am also on growth hormone replacement therapy and the glucophage reverses the side effects of raised insulin resistance.

    Hi,
    I take the glucophage as well. Just wanted
    to find someone taking ZMA who had PCOS.
    I guess no one is.
    Thanks,
