It is an unfortunate thing to have this illness but it could be worse. A lifestyle change can eliminate your symptoms as well as change your diagnosis of Type II diabetes. It is not easy but it is possible. God bless and your quest for good health!!!

I'm so sorry to hear the news. I don't know if they're directly linked, but the PCOS does contribute to problems which elevate blood sugar and make the body insulin resistant, leading to diabetes. I hope you're able to get good advice on dealing with it. ((hugs))

I was told I had PCOS November 2003 and 20 days later that I was IR, then 6 months after that told IR had progressed to type 2 diabetes

That's a bummer, I'm sorry. PCOS is a precursor to diabetes. We could all be a step away of joining you b/c of the IR we are at higher risk. I do have a friend w/ PCOS that was recently diagnosed w/ diabetes.
