Our expert says:
I would recommend that you go back to the dry or gynae who treated you for the ectopic pregnancy because from what you say it sounds as if you are suffering from a hormone imbalance (thyroid, insulin resistance or even female hormone imbalances). The dr will need to determine what is going on and provide the correct treatment (for example thyroid hormone is you have an underactive thyroid). If you should suffer from insulin resistance (IR) then it is important to consult a clinical dietitian, because the correct diet is a vital factor in treatment. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will take your IR, medications and other conditions such as overweight, into account when working out a diet for you, which will be based on foods with a low glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. Also click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes’. Do try and start going for a walk every day again - even if you walk very slowly because regular daily aerobic exercise for at least 30 min per day can also help you to improve your insulin and glucose levels.
