Lea Michele Opens up About PCOS Diagnosis.
In a recent interview with ‘Health’ magazine, Lea Michele spoke about her struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Michele revealed that the hormone imbalance caused severe skin issues for her when she was growing up.
I had terrible skin.
I went on Accutane three times.
I was put on every medication that you could imagine to help my skin.
Luckily, birth control was a savior for me when I was in my teens, Lea Michele, via ‘Health’.
It wasn’t until her late 20s when she stopped taking birth control that the symptoms came back, this time with weight issues as well.
I didn’t know what was going on.
All people wanted to do was give me more medication… I went to a great doctor, and the minute she looked at me, she was like, ‘Oh, you have PCOS.’ It explained everything, Lea Michele, via ‘Health’.
Although she is able is able to manage her PCOS through dieting and working out, Michele acknowledged that her version of the condition is “not as intense.” .
I am very fortunate.
There are way more extreme versions of PCOS that women have a lot of difficulty with—mine is not as intense.
Which is why I haven’t really talked about it, because there are women who have it so much more intense, Lea Michele, via ‘Health’
