Help! I am 26 and have been battling with PCOS and weight gain for a long time.. and suggestions
Hello there . I have been battling pcos for few years now and it is sooo hard to loose any waight . I did get help from my doctor he put me on metformin " anti diabetic " drug and it's helping a lot . Please give it a try it help me loose few pounds .
I am 27. Last year i was diagnosed w insulin resistance...I gained 30lbs in 2 years. This year my obgyn explained the "2 for 1 package deal" of pcos/ir. It's been a struggle for me too. I've only recently decided to delve into everything... diets, exercise, information. I've finally realized that i have to stop cheating my body & expecting it to work. It's a lot of information & really overwhelming sometimes. I really liked a book you can buy from amazon, The insulin resistance diet. It's about linking&balancing your food (for every 15g carbs, link at least 7g of protein-of course there's many more details) but it's not so scary & it has really helped me.
I just found out today that I've crossed over into the diabetic range. I was IR for years before this. My A1C is 6.6, so just over the limit. Now I'll get to monitor my blood sugar all the time and cut out all refined carbs. Not fun... Try to do something about IR before it turns into diabetes.
