PCOS and Insulin test results

Saturday, October 27, 2012

I finally got my insulin test back. It was a c peptide that the doctor ordered. Normal is between 1 to 4.4 according to their scale. My C peptide came back 3.3. The Endocrinologist said that was on the higher end of normal. I decided to try Metformin one more time. Metformin is most commonly used for diabetics but can also be used for PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian sydrome.) Many women with PCOS become diabetic. I am not diabetic yet and I hope to keep it that way. :)

I read there was a reaction to Armour (for the thyroid) but I trust the Endocrinologist. He was very tuned in and back to himself this time. He does care and I appreciate that.

Today was day one. It didn't make me feel sick today at all. I can't conclude anything from only taking it for one day but at least it's starting off positively. No stomach or chest pains so far...

I would also like to thank everyone from their comments on my previous blogs. It's been a busy week so I haven't had much time to stop by your pages much so thank you for being supportive and awesome! :)
