… All My Blood Tests Show That My Hormones Are In Normal Range & I Am Not Insulin Resistant?
Dear Robin: “Why do I have PCOS when all my blood tests show that my hormones are in normal range and I am not insulin resistant?” ~ Nicole
Dear Nicole: PCOS is a catch-all condition for the symptoms you are experiencing, specifically irregular menstrual cycles. You have been prescribed the Minipill which contains progestin so please see above for the dangers. One of the side effects of the Minipill is depression and 13 in 100 women will get pregnant in a year of use on the Minipill if you are sexually active. Additionally it carries the risk of birth defects.
I am curious about the blood tests that were run for you, and how you know you don’t have insulin resistance. Fasting insulin is almost never run and that is a key marker for insulin resistance. Additionally, fasting glucose, hemoglobin A1c, triglycerides and uric acid are key markers. Gaining weight around the middle, mood swings, foggy brain, feeling tired and hungry, increased thirst, dark skin patches or skin tags, and more are indications that you may have insulin resistance.
The diagnosis of PCOS is not important Nicole, but it is important that you feel well. You deserve to feel fabulous and live the life you desire. Keep asking questions!
