I've gained 20lbs since April (10lbs since July). I have a back problem so I can't exercise as much as I want but I am active and eat a healthy diet. I don't think I eat that much. I have Polycistic Ovaries Disease (PCOD) and my doctors prescribe the contraceptive pill to help manage my weight, but it is not working (I'm 5'5" and 175lbs). I only drink water and juice - I get thirsty a lot. Sometimes I have no appetite and others I get very low blood sugar really quickly. My hair is thinning, it doesn't grow, my skin is dry & cuts don't heal. I bruise easily, get restless at night, have bladder problems and little energy. My doctor says its from the PCOD.
I had a thyroid & diabetes test last year and everything was normal. What could it be?
