In a double-blind, randomised trial of 72 women with PCOS who were treated with liraglutide had a significant improvement in their menstrual bleeding, weight reduction of 5.2 kg and a reduction in levels of male hormones when compared against the placebo.7

What is PCOS?

PCOS is a condition which affects how the female ovaries function and may affect as many as one in ten women.1

There are 3 main effects of PCOS:

irregular periods – this means the ovaries will not regularly release eggs.

excess androgen – increased levels of male hormones in your body, which can cause physical signs such as excess facial, body hair and weight gain.

polycystic ovaries – your ovaries become enlarged and contain multiple follicles that surround the eggs.

PCOS & Weight Gain

Most conversations with your doctor about PCOS will focus on irregular menstrual periods but women with PCOS face other problems — and a big one is weight gain.

Those who suffer from PCOS tend to have increased insulin resistance which is often cited as a large contributing factor to obesity.


Insulin is a hormone made in the pancreas that helps glucose in your blood (which comes from the food you eat) enter cells in your muscle, fat, and liver, where it’s used for energy.

When blood glucose levels rise after you eat, your pancreas  releases insulin into the blood.

This helps lower the blood glucose to keep it in the normal range.

Insulin resistance is when the body has difficulty absorbing glucose from the bloodstream and converting it to energy. This causes the body  to produce more insulin in an attempt to maintain a normal blood sugar level.

Eventually the body becomes used to overproducing insulin to keep blood sugar level normal.

The high levels of insulin then lead to excessive hunger, increased cravings & in turn, weight gain.

The high insulin levels will also cause the production of "androgens", which are male hormones and one of their effects is weight gain in the abdomen.

A six month medicated weight loss treatment which included Liraglutide resulted in significant reduction in weight and improvement in quality of life of young women with PCOS and obesity.4

Why is it so hard to lose weight?

There are four main reasons why it's so hard to lose weight for those with PCOS.

1. Your body is in fat storage mode.

This is because the high levels of insulin promote fat storage, leading to increased abdominal fat.

2. You experience higher levels of hunger.

Insulin acts as an appetite-stimulating hormone and high levels of insulin may explain why some people with PCOS experience more hunger.

Intense cravings are reported in women who are insulin resistant and if it isn't managed, these cravings can create bad eating habits leading to higher calorie consumption and weight gain.

3. Your appetite-regulating hormones are impaired.

Appetite-regulating hormones ghrelin, cholecystokinin, and leptin have been found to be impaired in women with PCOS. 2

These hormones when at impaired levels stimulate hunger in people with PCOS which leads to  increased food intake and difficulty managing weight.

4. Your metabolic rate is impaired.

Researchers discovered that those with PCOS have reduced postprandial thermogenesis  which means your metabolism is slower than it should be after you eat. 

A reduced metabolic rate can lead to fewer calories burnt at rest which can lead to weight gain.5
