Dear Madam,
first and foremost you will do very well with weight loss and metformin. metformin is very good for your polycystic ovaries also (GLUFORMIN XL). please concentrate on weight , it will help you reduce b.p, sugar & cholesterol. You are not obese. Your target should be to lose 5-10% of your current body weight in next 6 months. I would generally prefer young patients like you to be on least dose of medicines so that you benefit on a long term basis.
I am confident you will do well. take out your running shoes and walk towards weight loss.
All the very best!
