Metformin Reduces CRP in Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
What I find interesting about this article is not that a diabetic drug could lower CRP levels (insulin will raise CRP levels–so if you lower insulin levels you will lower CRP as well) but that the standard care, aka the Pill, will increase CRP levels!! It seems like, in so many cases, the OB/GYN answer to most female problems is to use the pill to force a “normal” cycle on the patient. Yet this sets up a physiological state that is ultimately damaging to the patient’s long term health.
