Hi there. My name is Bonita and I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. The doctor told me that if I did not get things under control I would be a full blown diabetic within 10 years. I have been taking metformin (sp?) and have been trying to eat as if I was a diabetic. I would love to see this board become more active so I could learn from all of you!
Hi Bonita. Sorry the board is so slow, I have put a bunch of links that gives information. The best thing you can do at this stage is low carb diet - wish I had done that... I am now a type 2.
I just got back from a weeks vacation. Talk about hard to stick to a diet! I still lost a lb though. I am not really shooting for low carb, but more of a balanced diet (Think food pyramid). If I have not lost some more weight by my follow up apt in July then I plan to join Weight Watchers. I a have lost about 14lbs in the last month and a half. I am thankful for that, but still have a long way to go.
