Pcos Natural Cure Or Metformin?

Recommended Posts

Hi again :)

I think I found the last piece of my acne puzzle - I spent over 150 Euros for hormonal tests etc. and went to practically every doctor possible. I was diagnosed with PCOS after years of suffering.

My cortisol is sky high, my testosterone is elevated, I have a few drops of estrogen. my ACTH (pituitary gland hormone) is underfunctioning, I have too little cholesterol in my body and insulin resistance. And a few more problems, but this are the main triggers.

I was prescribed metformin for at least one year. I must also drop weight, although I am perfectly fine now, but you know... Insulin resistance.

I feel depressed, lost and I dont know where to start.

I was wondering if the metfomin would be a good point to start the treatment or I should go all natural? What do you think?

I will appreciate EVERY comment, I feel terrible now. :(

It is a personal choice. You could start on the metaformin and switch to natural supplements or use metaformin until the lifestyle changes kick in or fore go it altogether. Whatever you do will take time.
