One of the clinical symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is obesity. Medical studies have established that PCOS is often accompanied by a visceral obesity, accompanied with the most severe changes in the endocrine system. Hormonal imbalance in PCOS is usually caused by insulin resistance.
To cure obesity with PCOS, Phentermine weight loss drug can be prescribed. Regular use of Phentermine pills combined with healthy eating and physical activity helps reducing the risk of some diseases caused by PCOS.
Weight loss in PCOS by means of Phentermine normalizes the concentration of pituitary hormones, ovarian androgens and recovery of the reproductive function. It was noted that along with weight loss, Phentermine anti-obesity therapy decreased the size of ovaries and improved somatic state in women suffering from PCOS.
In addition to normalized function of hormonal system, weight loss by means of Phentermine also:
- Normalizes the blood pressure, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases;
- Increases the glucose tolerance, decreasing the blood sugar and thereby, reducing the risk of diabetes;
- Minimizing the cholesterol level, reducing the risk of atherosclerosis;
- Stimulates ovulation and increases the chance to conceive.
To cure obesity complicated by PCOS and to relieve symptoms of PCOS, (e.g. acne, excessive growth of facial hair, irregular menstruation, and high level of androgens) along with Phentermine some birth control pills are prescribed.
Insulin resistance is a typical symptom for PCOS and hirsutism. To treat moderate and severe hirsutism in women with PCOS, combination of Phentermine and Metformin or antiandrogens (Dianette) can be prescribed. Clinical trials have shown that hirsutism in women suffering from PCOS can be effectively cured by lessening the blood insulin level.
In women with PCOS, a combined therapy with Metformin and Phentermine reduces hair diameter, suppresses the activity of androgens and reduces insulin resistance markers. Weight loss combined with improved glucose tolerance restores menstruation and stimulates ovulation.
Phentermine interacts with Metformin, which may increase antihyperglycemic actions and cause hypoglycemia. To reduce the risk of extremely low blood sugar during the use of Phentermine in antidiabetic therapy, a patient should take low doses of Metformin.
