insulin resistance from birth?

Postby Carly Rose » Thu Sep 08, 2011 5:47 pm

Hi everyone.

i was just wondering if anyone else had symptoms of insulin resistance from since they were a baby. ?
according to my mum ive had brown skin patches on my back forever. as well as a dark line across my waist.

its a shame nobody thought to get it all checked out.... :(
i might have held back on the sweets and fizzy drinks as a kid and spared myself the weight and acne problems.
luckily ive managed to get rid of those symptoms now.....but FATIGUE is ruining my life. i just got back from meeting up with a few college friends, and all i wannna do is sleepppp. its so not normal. ive only bin out two hours!

would be nice to hear of other people's experiences of living with it there WHOLE life....

Our experts at verity are looking at a link between vitamin D defficiency and PCOS - Are you taking any vitamins, if not, try taking Vit D and see if it helps with the tiredness.
