Hello, PCOS cannot be treated completely by medicines, it can only be managed. Yes metformin is known to reduce weight among PCOS patients it is safe (most people worry that it causes decrease in blood sugar level,,, but it decrease blood sugar level to normal of high but not below normal, so can be safely used). Weight reduction improves PCOS diet is not necessary,, physical exercise is also important.
