With the specially prepared nutrition program, the insulin resistance is eliminated and the patient loses weight. Drug treatment is started to lower the level of male hormone in the blood. Birth control pills can be used to treat menstrual irregularity. Vitamin and mineral supplements or hair removal technology can be used for hair and skin problems.
