Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

In polycystic ovaries the hormone dis-balance is such that there are long intervals in between two periods. Relax deranged sugar levels are common in PCOD but that does not mean that you would have diabetes in future. Metformin is commonly prescribed in case of PCOD. Doing some lifestyle changes will help you like-

1.Reduce saturated fat intake.
2.Maintain good body composition .
3.Increase dietary fiber .
4.Increase aerobic exercise .
5.Restrict sugar intake.
You can also consider visiting a Dietician who can help you in diet according to your requirements and choice.

Take care!
