Pcos ....
I had irregular periods all the time growing up, and yet I never went to the doctor to check it out. Because of that I developed diabetes.

If I had been treated for pcos I could of avoided diabetes.


My friend was diagnosed with pcos and was treated she never developed diabetes.

Hope this helps

Hi I am new. I was diagnosed with pcos in march of last year and then diabetes in october. I go to a pcos forum and have learned a lot about it. Pcos and insulin resistance goes hand in hand. I have also heard that hypothyroidism has to do with pcos as well. I think I have had pcos since I was young but my dr never told me and now I am paying for it. The things you do for pcos is just watching your carb intake and you can get on some meds if you want to have a baby and are having problems. I have heard there is medicine as well if you get a really long period. I have the opposite problem and don't get periods unless I take something. It is important to get one at least every three months so I take prometrium(progesterone pill). If you would like to check out the pcos forum I can give you the web address. I hope this at least gives you some info you may not have known.

All of these condtitions could have been avoided if the .Dr's had looked into the hormone imbalances in our bodies. Yes, they could have been avoided, but I do not know if they can be reversed by taking of the proper hormones. Weight gain is also involved and has to do with these same hormones. Sleeping too much and depression can also be linked together with these. One hormone being off, changes the other hormone balances. Etc, etc.... I have just been researching it for my daughter, because she has a bad weight problem, and hardly eats at all, been diagnosed with pcos, but started having normal periods after her baby, depression, probably hypothyroid also--has not of yet been checked, gestational diabeties with her baby, and borderline diabeties now, I am sure of it.

Edit--the .Dr's told her possibly pcos, but I do believe she has it. I dont remember if we had the hormone tests done for it or not, but I know they were ordered for her to do.

I know pcos is for life. There is no way to get away from it. You can just get the symptoms under control. Good luck to your daughter.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Only diabetes mellitus can be delayed by doing regular exercise and changing life style. Others can't be prevented. These are associated diseases in Schmidt syndrome.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
