Hallo Mickey B
No increased insulin levels usually mean that you are insulin resistant ( you have enough insulin but your body does not react to it as it should) It can develop into diabetes if not treated. It can be treated by 30 min exercise per day and Metformin medication and overweight people should lose weight (your'e fine there!) PCOS is a condition that cause weight gain, stops menstruation, causes acne and sometimes abnormal hair growth on the face - it is not necessarily always linked with insulin resistance.
