Our expert says:
If you are studying at Potchefstroom, then I would recommend that you take all your blood test results to your lecturers and say to them: "Here I am, one of your dietetics students and I suffer from IR, PCOS and raised cholesterol despite exercising, taking omega-3 FAs and not overeating! What do you, as my lecturers, recommend?" They should do a diet history for you to determine your kJ and fat intake. This will give them an idea if you need to reduce your energy intake and how much exercise you require to start losing. I reckon they will also put you on a low-GI diet. If this does not help, then you may require products like Xenical to help you lower your fat intake even more (both to lose weight and reduce the cholesterol). You are at one of the best Departments of Human Nutrition with a whole range of experts who will be able to assist you, so tap into their knowledge. Tell them I send my best regards.
Best regards to you - hope they can sort this problem out for you.
