Help for PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) & Weight Loss
<< Back to Weight Loss Article Index

PCOS & Weight Loss

There may be an alternative for those suffering from PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), a hormone imbalance that interferes with normal ovulation. Women with PCOS do not have normal, regular menstrual cycles and may have multiple small cysts on their ovaries. The main problem is the hormonal imbalance which affects other body systems, such as their metabolic and cardiovascular systems.

British researchers in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism's February 2005 issue reported that from 10%-50% of PCOS patients are obese.

It's also well known that reducing weight can greatly help alleviate the symptoms of PCOS.

Metformin, a diabetes drug, is often prescribed to reduce the chances of miscarriage, yet Metformin does not help with weight loss.

Xenical versus Metformin for Weight Loss

This article at reports on a study done with PCOS sufferers to see whether Xenical may help them lose weight and relieve other symptoms, including excess testosterone.

Results showed those taking both drugs (Xenical and Metformin) found a reduction in testosterone. This is significant because excess testosterone is largely why women with PCOS have side effects such as excess facial hair and usually have difficulties in conceiving and carrying a child to full-term.

If Xenical also helps with weight loss, this would be very good news, since even a small drop in weight can also help alleviate PCOS symptoms.

The side effects of Metformin reported at a 30% or greater incidence include: diarrhea, gas, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and bloating. Yuck. Three out of 10 is a pretty significant number, so the possibility of Xenical offering similar benefits with less side effects, and the added benefit of helping with weight loss makes it worth consideration.

If you suffer from PCOS, it may be worthwhile to ask your doctor about Xenical versus Metformin.
