PCOS: Pcos may be present in up to 30% of women. It is an Insulin resistant state that is characterized by weight gain, irregular or absent periods, hair growth, infertility and predisposition to diabetes. Diet, exercise and weight loss will help, as will metformin which can reduce Insulin resistance and regularize menses and even fertility. Education and other medication may be needed for high glucose.
