I was put on Metformin myself and it didn't do well with me, I am on glumetza something simliar but its slow release. I really don't like taking medication but I'm going to give it a shot for a while and see what happens. I'm trying to change my diet and I've added more exercise.

I can't take Metformin because it makes me very sick. When I tried it, my chest tightened up and my stomach hurt so badly. The doctor said it would really help with my weight and I told him that I will not risk it!! I gave it a fair chance. I was just diagnosed this year but I have known I had this for a long time. I am not diabetic yet and it's one of the reasons why I really want to lose the weight now. I want to do as much as possible to prevent it. I wish there was something else that I could do to manage the PCOS (besides the obvious..eating right, exercise, etc.)

I am happy you found something that is helping you. :)

I have been recently diagnosed with Diabetes. I was told by my MD that PCOS/Diabetes, Insulin resistence all part of the same endocrine issue. I am 50 years old, and I have been having problems with insulin resistence for years, and was dx'd with PCOS in my 30's after a lifetime of dealing with it. I have lost 13 lbs since being put on Meformin and changing my diet. I feel like someone finally flipped the switch, my brain woke up and so did my muscles. How about yall. I also read if you have PCOS you are 5X's as likely to become a diabetic. What odds wish someone had told me.
