Hi...My name is Sherry and I have PCOS. I wanted to start a blog dedicated to my struggles and accomplishments while dealing with this syndrome. I am currently overweight and pre-diabetic. My triglycerides are off the charts. I also have excess facial and body hair and skin tags. I need to get this under control. My doctor started me on metformin about a month ago. I have been taking it faithfully. The side effects in the beginning were pretty bad.. but, I have stuck with it. The metformin is supposed to help control the symptoms of PCOS. I am taking 1500 mg. I can't tell a difference so far. But, I haven't been on the med for very long. My doc says that 3 months is the average amount of time for the med to get into your system and start doing it's job. I have lost 10 lbs in the last 7 weeks. That was due to an intense detox diet that I was on for 12 days.
Currently, I am following a diet that consists of low fat and low sugar foods. Or I guess I should say "trying" to follow a diet that consists of low fat and low sugar. It's hard when my body is craving all the good stuff. UGH!
So, drop in frequently and check out my progress.
