In brief: PCOS

Polycysitic ovaries will cause weight gain and a "swollen face.
" I believe you are also probably functionally hypo-thyroid, even though your blood tests are "normal." Thyroid blood tests are generally a waste of blood. You need Metformin and the herb Berberine for PCOS (500 mg of each, 3 times daily). Get Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness.
