Discussions that mention glucophage

Alternative Medicine board


Hi there, my testosterone was also elevated and my dr brushed it off and put it down to my PCOS (had it for 20years without ever having elevated testosterone....hmmmm) I also have elevated DHEAS. Have not had a period in...hmm 4 years or more but did manage to have 2 babies with intervention. I too would like to find an alternative medicine to help but have not heard of any so far. I take glucophage (metformin) for insulin resistance (just started a month ago). It may have a beneficial side effect of lowering the testosterone...or not.

I'll be watching the posts to see if anyone else comes up with something for you
