Is it possible to have PCOS without being insulin resistant

Postby sydneyme » Mon Jun 16, 2008 11:07 pm

I just had a glucose tolerance test and my GP told me it can back normal. But yet I have all the signs of PCOS and she said that often insulin resistance can be controlled by exercising which I do often. But she didnt mention anything else about PCOS :roll:

Yes you can have PCOS without being insulin resistant. Although I'm type 1 diabetic (inject insulin), I am not resistant to it because my doses are so low and if I do a bit too much insulin I have low blood sugar levels so I'm am not resistant because I response so well to my injected insulin. If I was insulin resistant I would be on much higher doses.

I hope this makes sense.
