You are at risk: for diabetes and perhaps even have it already with a fasting glucose 126, Diet, exercise, weight loss and sometimes a medication is prescribed even BEFORE you get a Diabetes Diagnosis- some think Metformin can prevent Diabetes in a pre-diabetic, SInce you have PCOS this medication may be appropriate to lower you risk of complications in the future.
