Metformin for PCOs


Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCO) is a condition that makes it hard for some individuals to get pregnant. PCO is more associated to an obese or overweight woman than to thin women. It is said that this syndrome occurred due to hormone imbalance in the body.

If you have this disease, your doctor may prescribe a medicine called Metformin (Glucophage – brand name). Basically, metformin is used to alleviate the symptoms of PCOs in some women. Metformin is a drug which is used to control the blood sugar/glucose level and usually it is given to individuals suffering from Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Extensive research has revealed that metformin work by decreasing absorption of dietary carbohydrates through the intestines, reducing the production of glucose by the liver and increases the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin. Thus, metformin (taken together with other medicine like Saw Palmetto Extract - SPE) can also help to promote weight loss for obese females diagnosed with the symptoms of PCO.

To sum it all, the basic function of metformin is to lower the insulin level, testosterone level and also the glucose level. But before taking this drug prescription, be sure to get some advice from your doctor about its benefit and also its side effect. If you want to know more about metformin, read about it in this review. Good luck!
