Does the following differential equation have a simple analytic solution?

[tex]\frac{dy}{dx}=y-\frac{2x}{y}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

Don't know.

3. The attempt at a solution

I would have said that there is no simple solution to this equation, I tried to find the integrating factor, which would just be [tex]-x[/tex] in this case, but i don't know what to do about the [tex]-\frac{2x}{y}[/tex] part? The standard formula's I have don't work.

Any hints and pointers would be much appreciated!
