Thanks for your reply.
Although I have been dieting (exercising and cutting out all sugar and carbs), I have not lost any weight.
I am 1m57cm and about 73 kg.
There is no history of diabetes in my family.
Apart from PCOS I don't have any illnesses, however I am prone to hormonal unbalances ( i have had a myoma removed 5 years ago).
I had started taking Glucophage a year and a half ago, taking various doses (from 1500 up to 3000 at some point). I stopped taking it several months ago - I didn't feel comfortable taking a medication for such a long time and my doctor said I don't need it.
Also, I have been trying to get pregnant, unsuccessfully for a year and a half.
I have consulted with an endocrinologist, - he is the one who tested me. He tells me I am not prediabetic and have no disposition for diabetes at this time. All I want to know is if this is correct or not - based on the results I have sent you:
Insuling fasting: 5.0 uU/mlGlucose fasting: 4.9 mmol/LGlucose 1 hr: 5.10 mmol/LGlucose 2 hr: 3.94mmo/L(oral glucose load quantity: 75)
And whether I should take medication.
Unfortunately as a woman it is virtually impossible for me to travel to Saudi Arabia.
