I've been recently diagnosed with PCOS and put on Metformin. Anything that I should know outside of the basic knowledge available on Google?

      Eat seeds, all kinds. And follow a pcos nutritionist on instagram. They always have tips.

Some people with PCOS have reported that they initially felt horrible when starting Metformin. It may be helpful to start with a lower dose and gradually increase it, as advised by your doctor. Additionally, incorporating lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, and managing stress can help improve insulin resistance and PCOS symptoms. Some individuals have also found supplements like Ovasitol and alternative dietary approaches, like going dairy/gluten-free, to be helpful. Always consult your doctor before making any significant changes to your treatment plan.
