im writing to ask about my sister who was just diagnosed with PCOS.
she is barely 110 pounds, has no acne, no excess hair growth, and went from about 130 pounds to 110 pounds last year after gaining weight in college. After she lost that weight, she lost her period. She went to the doc a few weeks ago and they did some tests. Her LH was 3x the level of her FSH. Her Dr. told her she has PCOS and started her on metformin. She has not started metformin as she is completely baffled by this diagnosis. She was thinking the loss of her period was due to her weight loss.
Does this diagnosis make any sense??? I told her to get more tests, like maybe a glucose tolerance test or an ultrasound of her ovaries. She's not TTC, she was just wondering where her period went.
any thoughts here? is a high LH by itself enough to make this diagnosis? thanks ladies!!
