PCOS update

500mg Metformin a day since August 2008 combined with close calorie counting meant I eventually lost 4kgs between January and June 2009.  The struggle for a Flutamide prescription is slowly paying off.  I haven’t seen much scalp hair growth, but the shed is less, and some of the excess hair is starting to go away.  I am now off Metformin and on Sibutramine (which is meant to raise metabolism).  It has far fewer side effects, and I’ve since lost a further kilo, though this may be more due to the erratic eating/exercise/sleeping habits I’ve kept over the past couple of weeks – more on that later today.

Nothing to be relieved about just yet, but promising signs.
