    Hi,

    This is going to be long and I apologize if it's not in the right thread.

    I was diagnosed with PCOS 14 years ago (@ 21). At the time I was about 265 lbs and had given up on getting back to a healthy weight. At 25 after seeking help from MDs including endocrinologists I gave up, no one helped. I later found the hCG protocol and then the Leptin Reset, thank you Dr. Kruse. I managed to lose 80 lbs and keep it off for 6 yrs with a paleolithic diet but my PCOS symptoms didn't improve so about 2 years ago I was put on metformin and birth control. I started to gain weight rapidly. I had a car accident 6 months ago and with the immobility, and not eating paleo, I peaked at 270. I stopped taking the meds, because they were also causing other issues.

    Since finishing my treatment (April 2018) I have now switched to a ketogenic diet with how's of losing the weight. I'm currently at 243 lbs but have seen no progress in over 1 month. I workout or 5 days a week : 3 lifting days and 2 cardio days.

    I don't crave carbs or sugars, I can easily fast intermittently, and I have more energy now than ever before. But is it possible to become leptin resistant again? I just don't know which direction to go in right now. I don't want to further compromise my metabolism.

    I live in South Florida, does anyone have MDs they can recommend to help me figure out what's going on? Which blood tests should I have done and what should I look for?

    I also take the following supplements:

    1. multi
    2. vit d
    3. b complex
    4. b6
    5. b12
    6. folic
    7. coq10
    8. magnesium malate
    9. potassium
    10. collagen
    11. melatonin
    12. Chromium picolinate
    13. L-arginine
    14. DHA

    TIA
