Only Half of PCOS-Linked Pre-Diabetes Sufferers Taking Steps to Avoid Type 2 Diabetes

New research suggests only about 50% of women with PCOS-linked pre-diabetes who are aware of their condition are taking steps to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. 
 
Writing in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers discussed an analysis of survey responses from 1,402 people with pre-diabetes who participated in the 2005-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
 
Only 7.3% of respondents said that a healthcare provider had diagnosed them with pre-diabetes and only 48% of them had been tested for diabetes or high blood sugar within the past three years.
 
In the last 12 months, only about half of the respondents had taken steps like losing weight via reduced calorie intake and increasing exercise to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
 
Women with PCOS are particularly vulnerable to type 2 diabetes, which is irreversible in most cases and may require insulin injections to manage. The disorder is a severely increased risk factor for blindness, kidney disease and the need for amputation.
