The diagnosis of PCOS is usually made with an ultrasound. If PCOS is present, your doctor should do a glucose tolerance test, as diabetes and insullin resistance is associated with PCOS. Glucophage is used to treat these conditions. There are studies that have showed that Glucophage can also alleviate the severe symptoms of PCOS.
