Weight reduction Tab Metformin after BSL, though very low chances hypoglycemia Very often related with hypothyroidism & hyperprolactinaemia Lab test is necessary & treat accordingly

To understand the ideal treatment, we first need to understand the problems: 1. Metabolic abnormalities: insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, excess hepatic and visceral fat, obesity, glucose intolerance, diabetes 2. Hormonal abnormalities: mainly increased pituitary secretion of LH, increased ovarian secretion of testosterone & androstenedione possible stimulated by both increased LH and insulin 3. Dermatologic abnormalities: acne, hirsutism, alopecia Now to treat these: 1. To reduce insulin resistance and hepatic/visceral fat: Metformin or Pioglitazone 2. To regain the hormonal balance: COC i.e., Combines (estrogen-prog) Oral Contraceptives 3. To take care of the dermatologic problems: antiandrogen - spironolactone Ideal therapy: A combination of the above three
