Glucophage and Weight Loss

For the many women who are wondering why they keep adding on the pounds despite eating healthy and regular exercise, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may be the problem. And if one has been diagnosed to indeed have PCOS, weight loss pills may come in the form of diabetic drugs like Metformin.

Glucophage aids weight loss by lowering insulin levels, a rise of which makes you hungrier and leads you to manufacturing more fats (as well as storing them in your belly).

So if you've been struggling with weight loss for sometime now, despite your best efforts, consult your OB. You just might have PCOS. If you do, then weight management may get easier once you're taking the necessary drugs for it.
