I was put on it because my blood sugars went up because I had polycystic ovarion syndrome with causes a resistance to insulin. I stuck to a strick diabetic diet and joined a gym.I lost no weight and my blood sugars continued to climb.

I would be cautious about this one, personally... but Wiki says "It also helps reduce LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and may aid weight loss" (note that it "may" help weight loss). I'm sure your doctor weighed the factors before prescribing this drug and that you've tried other diet and exercise programs, so I'm sure I shouldn't worry. In any case, I wish you good luck!

metformin. It improves the way your system uses sugar. I'm not aware of its use as a weight reducer - but I assume your doctor does.
