    What is Shbg?
    How do you fix it if its low?
    So it can be low even with a normal free testosterone level...? :roll:

    thanks for replying! :)

    i have weight issues, so i suppose met will be good for me? i sure hope so! i know it's not a weight loss pill, but anything to help normalize my insulin issues will be nice!

    apparently met here is pretty common for PCOS women. i went to the hospital the other day 'cause i wasn't feeling well, i told the doctor i have pcos and he asked why i wasn't on metformin. i told him we're working on that with my new endo! i never knew how popular it is for PCOS here in my country (province) anyway!

    SHBG= sex hormone binding globin. Its bound to testosterone to make it less available to effect skin and hair. OCP's like Yasmin can usually raise it. Not sure on the other ques.
