Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
I have been diagnosed with PCOS, and insulin-intolerance. I have been put on metformin, and taken off. Had most of my blood drawn - with no solutions. I have recently been put onto Xenical, and although I feel a touch thinner, it doesn't really seem to be having the effects promised. I was told - the only way to fix the problem is to lose weight. However, I cannot lose weight. So I sit with two problems really. What can I do?

Cazi, it might be that you’re not taking enough metformin or that you should take a different “diet pill” like Reductil®. You can also drop DietDoc a line a hear what she has to say. Good luck.
