I agree with the above. The gluten free diet is much easier lately as even walmart has a section of gluten free. We have a store that labels each item that is gluten free in their store (and they are a big one). The symptoms are widerange and act like many other diseases. My ggrandaughter was diagnosed and she went from awful to a perfectly normal healthy child...her mom said --gramma try this. It was amazing!!. It makes a huge difference in less than a week.
The other comment is when I went on metformin i had these symptoms and was changed to a different med..take less and controls well.(glyburide).
God bless and good luck
The first diet you could try to help control your symptoms is a gluten free diet. A gluten free diet is a diet free of wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats. A gluten intolerance (which is when someone doesn't have the enzymes or not enough enzymes to break down the gluten in the above foods) can cause all of your above symptoms - PCOS, RA, hypoglycemia, etc. It's easy to look this up on the internet. If you'd like to give the diet a try, make sure you take a gluten free multivitamin (like NatureMade brand) and that your medicines don't have gluten. If you need help, just leave me a message.
Another diet you can try is a low carb diet like the Atkins diet - you can find the books on Amazon.com or go to your local library. The diet for PCOS is a low carb diet - people with PCOS have an insulin problem, which is helped with this diet along with metformin. I would also eliminate gluten along with the low carb diet. If you try the low carb diet, make sure you take the recommended nutrients. They are recommended for a reason. And some people get silly with the diet and don't take in any carbs - DON'T DO THAT! Maybe you can call your doctor to make sure this diet is safe for you.
