Polycystic Ovarian Syndromme - jazzygirlhal — LiveJournal

Apr. 23rd, 2006 04:28 pm Polycystic Ovarian Syndromme

After years of irregular periods and other symptoms,
I have finally been diagnosed with PCOS.
The scary part is that 40% of women with
PCOS will have type II diabetes by the age
of 40. The bigger picture starts to come
into view. Maybe this is the gift of my
infertility, to understand the risks of my
lack of insulin sensitivity and do something
about it before diabetes is the conclusion.
I am hoping it is not too late, and that my
insulin levels are still in the prediabetes
stage. I guess with PCOS I am at increased
risk of cardiovascular issues and hypertension.

My local OBGYN has done as much as they can
do so I am seeing a specialist at Baystate
in Springfield. It looks promising. I will
keep all of my loyal readers up-to-date on that.
