He ran a lot of tests and said my sugar level and thyroid were all normal. I have a appointment with a different female gp for Friday so I might see if she can point me in a direction that works

I didn't see the specialist as I wasn't convinced of the treatment and didn't want to pay hundreds just to find out more.

I was diagnosed with PCOS @14 years old. By age 31 I weighed 160kg, despite working in an active and physical job, I had Severe insulin resistance (fasting level was 20, peak was 100 - peak is meant 50 be 20!). Saw fertility specialist for advice on babies - ended up needing treatment for precancerous cell changes in the uterus - caused by not having a regular period.
After a few months of treatment for that. I saw a nutritionist and surgeon, and opted for gastric banding. 73kg gone in 13 months - and gone for the last 5 years. I was on metformin to resensitise my body to insulin., but stopped that after 12 months.
I would suggest if your GP is just wanting to wait and see, ask for a dietician and endocrinology review
