No real idea as to why they will not treat me. It has been a very long and difficult struggle. I began to follow a low carb diet at the end of March and have lost 20 lbs....have not lost anything in quite some time. I have an appt with a new RE at Bringham & Womens on June 28....although, at this point, I am at a loss for words when it comes to telling them what is wrong with me. Perhaps my insurance would not cover the IGTT and Meds? I truly have no idea and can only hope I have better luck next week. : : Doctors,

: : Two questions....

: : What can a fasting inuslin of 13.9 tell me when combined with a fasting glucose of 89? Also, who do so many physicians refrain from performing an IGTT??
: : I am going on my 6th physician (to treat my PCOS) and they have all refused. Thank You so much for your response! Alexis

: Your fasting insulin is at a reasonable level indicating a low chance of insulin resistance. However, these tests are not perfect. The whole clinical picture is more important. Why are the physicians refusing to treat you?
