- polycystic ovary syndrome, metformin, weight
Ive been on metformin 500 mg extended release for a couple of weeks now because i am prediabetic with high fasting sugar levels and I have PCOS. Im actuslly only 55 kg and want to lose only a couple of kg to get rid of that belly fat and fat around my waist. Im insulin resistant.
The metformin hasnt helped me drop a single kg despite all the exercise I do. I run 30 min a day 4-5 times a week with light weight training. Im trying to eat as healthy as I can but im ALWAYS HUNGRY.
can someone suggest what I can do? Will increasing metformin dose help me?
Hey Vienna! I am just like u! I was just diagnosed PCOS and insulin resistance. I'm not fat i'm 57 kg but just like u i want to lose belly fat. Before i used to do exercise and i never lost weight! Now it's been a week since i started metformin 500mg. The doc prescribed half morning for 3 days and then one
Morning after breakfast and one after lunch. I am tolerating the first dosis in the morning a bit more, but i take half after lunch and it's so untorable!no diarrea but loots
Of nausea like it's like being hungover all day! I can't even sleep.
So i'm not taking the afternoon dosis anymore. I have read that people
Start losing weight when it's like 2000mg daily. I do an hour intensive exercise a day and i also haven't seen any results eventhough i'm not
eating ANYthing unhealthy. Low carb, no fat. High protein. It's so frustrating i get so hungry and i want to eat all
The time lol. Tell me how you are doing with the med! Good luck
