Thank you for such a thorough explanation! One of the things we were asking my Dr. was the PCOS b/c of weight or weight b/c of PCOS....I started gaining and couldn't stop about 5 years ago. I had just gotten married, quit smoking and was working a job I hated and started trying every diet on the market. (I GAINED 2 lbs. on that cabbage soup diet!)
After going to a Dr. about my inability to lose weight we discovered I had PCOS. I'm on GlucophageXR now. Does that work like these other drugs or is it different? My blood sugar is normal, but my insulin levels are through the roof.
Thanks so much!
