I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome about a year ago. My doctor prescibed Glucophage for me, which contols your insulin. He also told me to lower my carb intake and exercise. The weight is slowly coming off but I am final able to lose weight. Hope this helps. It took the doctors to diagnose me with PCOS a long time because I don't have cysts at this time but have all the other classic problems with PCOS.
