After reading on health tap, i'm wondering if metformin would help me. I have pcos and am borderline diabetic. Could this be prescribed for me?

In brief: Possible

Metformin is used to treat diabetes.
Many women with pcos are treated with metformin - it is only beneficial if they have diabetes as well. Metformin does not change pcos and is not effective for treating only pcos.
