Metformin: Is It Really the Best Treatment for PCOS?

Metformin: Is It Really the Best Treatment for PCOS?

If you suffer from diabetes, or have ever had a close friend or family member who was a diabetic, you might be familiar with the name of a drug called Metformin. It is not the only medication prescribed for diabetes, but it is one of the more common ones, and in many cases it yields results. According to the National Library of Medicine, Metformin is a drug often used to treat Type 2 diabetes. And the reason for this is clear: This medication has shown results in controlling the amount of glucose in your blood, which can be effective in managing or stabilizing a diabetic condition.

The problem is that Metformin is not only prescribed for diabetes. Because of its effect on blood glucose, many doctors also give it to women suffering from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

This condition is closely linked to Insulin Resistance, the inability of the body to properly use glucose from the blood. But this medication was not necessarily made for those who suffer with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and the side effects can far outweigh the potential efficacy.

 

Metformin: Hazardous to Your Health?

 While the Mayo Clinic reports that Metformin is often administered to PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) patients—despite the fact that it is not approved for this use—the drug comes with a variety of potential side effects that any prospective user should know about in advance. Some of them are relatively innocuous, such as gas or stomach pain, but there is also a reported risk of liver damage and moderate to severe infections. These side effects might be easier to overlook if the drug were actually intended for use in PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Patients), but its label gives no indication that this is its intended use. But not to worry: There is a better way to combat the effects of PCOS without the use of Metformin.

 

A Better Way to Health and Happiness

 Women who have been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) need not worry, nor turn to potentially harmful medications. Research has shown that the condition is entirely reversible, and it can be done so through cultivating a healthier lifestyle; simply improving your diet and increasing your level of exercise can go a long way.
