I was diagnosed with PCOS at age 19. I had ultrasounds every year, and had 2 ruptures. At age 26 I was diagnosed with Diabetes, but from what I've read PCOS can cause symptoms of Diabetes, does that mean that I really am NOT diabetic? I have been on Glucophage for 5 years now, and it has not made a difference in my sugar, although I haven't had anymore ruptures since then.

My sugar is in the low 200's in the morning, then mid-morning it's 130's, and the rest of the day between 150-180. My diet has NO effect on these numbers. Can anyone clarify, or have other ideas that my Doctor may not be focusing on? She is so focused on Diabetes now, she hasn't even mentioned PCOS in over 2 years.

If you have any advice to offer, please email me at mugirl25@yahoo.com.

Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
