I was diagnosed with Type 2 last year and then went straight to having a bout with cancer. I was under control with the diabetes, until my scare and then it is getting a little out of control, so I have reel myself back in....I take only metformin.

this is a wonderful site to find the help and support that you need. Good luck

Hi everyone! I am so glad that I finally found a forum like this! I am 30 and I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome 2 1/2 weeks ago. When all my blood work came back in it turns out that my family history has finally caught up to me as well. I am insulin resistant and borderline type II. My father is type II and my mother and brother are type I. I have been having a really hard time adjusting. I also am still waiting to hear on second testing for possible liver issues. They also have put me on HUGE doses of vitamin D, phentermine, lovaza and calcium. They took me off of glucophage until my liver results are in. I am obviously an emotional train wreck! Thank goodness I have my wonderful husband and daughter to help me. She is only 2, but she always loves on me when I'm having a tough day. I am so happy to see that there is a support group like this! Has anyone else ever heard of PCOS? It affects 1 in 4 women and can lead straight to diabetes if not caught early. A great site to learn more is they provide all kinds of information. I hope that more women and men will learn about it so that others do not have to wonder what in the heck is going in their bodies. I hope to meet you all and work together to live healthy, happy, and productive lives!
