Carolyn Gundell, MS, Nutrionist
Carolyn Gundell, M.S., leads RMACT’s Fertility Nutrition Program, a service available to all patients. Under Carolyn’s direction, RMACT has implemented a Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Clinic, one of the few of its kind in Connecticut. With Carolyn’s help, patients address this frustrating metabolic condition that causes hormonal imbalances, preventing women from ovulating and leading to infertility. It is a common condition, affecting 5 – 10% of women of reproductive age, and is best managed through lifestyle changes such as healthy eating habits, exercise and weight management.
