PCOS, Exercise, and Insulin Resistance: What Does the Research Show?
Dr. Huddleston is a specialist in reproductive endocrinology (hormonal function) and infertility. She cares for patients with a wide array of reproductive and fertility concerns. She has special interests in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), recurrent pregnancy loss and uterine disorders, including Asherman’s syndrome (a condition involving scar tissue in the uterus). She also has expertise in techniques for diagnosing and treating complex uterine causes of infertility, including hysteroscopy, in which a thin, lighted tube is inserted into the vagina to allow examination of the cervix and interior of the uterus.
As director of the UCSF PCOS Clinic and research program, Huddleston oversees multiple research projects focused on improving medical understanding of PCOS. She also conducts research on recurrent pregnancy loss and treatment approaches for uterine factor infertility (abnormalities of the uterus that interfere with pregnancy). She has spoken on her findings all over the country, and her research has been widely published in scientific journals.
Huddleston earned her medical degree at Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Huddleston is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
