Polycystic ovarian disease
is condition where there are multiple small cysts in the ovaries along with hormonal imbalance leading to mensrtual irregularity, infertility
, acne and excess hair over body. Also there is insulin resistance
and obesity which predispose to conditions like diabetes and hypertension
Insulin resistance results in high insulin levels. High insulin levels increase the production of male hormones called androgens. High androgen levels lead to symptoms such as body hair growth, acne, irregular periods
and weight gain.
Zomet is metformin. Metformin is a useful medication in PCOD as it helps to improve fertility, reduce miscarriages and gestational diabetes
(diabetes in pregnancy), and reduce long-term health problems. You have to continue this medication for minimum of 6 months consistently. Metformin lowers insulin resistance. It increases the sensitivity of the liver, muscle, fat, and other tissues to the uptake and effects of insulin produced by the pancreas. This helps to lower the blood sugar levels. All this helps in weight loss
further improving the hormonal levels leading to regular periods and chances to conceive.
Other important thing in treatment of PCOS is to loose weight.
This helps a lot in decreasing insulin resistance and improving hormone levels. Also it decreases the risk of hypertension and diabetes in pregnancy.
So you should continue Zomet. Also Try to regulate your diet with healthy foods along with regular exercise. All this would help you in losing weight and treating your PCOS. The better your hormone levels are prior to pregnancy, the better the outcome of pregnancy would be.
