Glucose Testing

Dear Doc

Is it worthwhile to monitor glucose levels with insulin resistance? I have IR and PCOS and will be going to see a diabetes specialist in only 5 weeks time. I' m very familiar with the monitoring having 3 direct family members with Diabetes 2.

Thanks as always,
Sophia

Yes, it is worthwhile. Due to your condition (PCOS), you do run a risk of developing non-insulin dependent diabetes militus.
