Women with PCOS are prone to the onset of pre-diabetes. But one of the tricky aspects of the latter disorder is that it often appears to have no symptoms until it has developed into type 2 diabetes.
However, there are signs to watch for, especially darkened areas of skin. This is a condition called acanthosis nigricans and common areas that may be affected include the neck, armpits, elbows, knees and knuckles.
Also, milder forms of classic red flags for type 2 diabetes may be a sign of pre-diabetes. These include:
- increased thirst
- frequent urination
- blurred vision
See a doctor if you find yourself experiencing any of these conditions. Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition, which is irreversible in most cases and may require daily injections of insulin.
Fortunately, pre-diabetes, which usually precedes the type 2 variety, can be reversed, via a balanced, nutritious diet and regular exercise resulting in weight loss or better weight control.
