My doctor put me on Metformin w/o even checking my sugars. I have PCOS (irregular periods, not currently but have a history of, lots of facial hair, hard time losing weight, TTC for 14 months, etc.) I had one elevated sugar during my second pregnancy, but passed the three hour glucose test with flying colors. So I called my doctor (or rather the nurse) and asked why I was on Metformin. Have any of the rest of you had this experience? They took me off of it, but I am just concerned I may need it since I have a hard time losing weight. Does it do anything else besides regulating insulin levels which in turn regulates hormones? What would you do? I do not want to take something I do not need, but if it helps, I should probably use it! Any answers would be appreciated!
