I'm struggling with my body. I feel like I'm fighting it everyday. From my weight, my excessive hair, my mood swings and emotions - I just feel like I'm in a never ending fight. Can anyone relate?

      Yes it is an everyending fight evening after my diagnosis 25 years ago. I think the hair loss journey loss I have solved by stop getting perms. I didn't look to see if you were Caucasian. This is my first post. I am sorry. I am African American and so I went natural and not going through that solved that pain. Now weight gain. I am still beautiful and heavier set but I eat very bland and stopped alot of things. It is working. PCOS is very hard to loss weight so I was shocked that finally after all these years but after no beef or pork and only chicken/fish/alkaline water etc started to make a change. Good luck. I forgot the rest Please 4give me.

      Hello. Just joined yesterday. Found out I have PCOS about 5 years ago. Lately I have noticed my facial hair has increased a little since switching birth control types, some is light colored and some is dark and grows quick. I have to monitor that constantly. I have been trying to manage my diet better but I eat way more sweets than I should and I am scared I am dangerously close to becoming diabetic. I work full-time so a lot of times I eat whatever is available or even skip meals. My annual is coming up and I will ask to have my blood work drawn again since it's been 3 years. My A1C and my blood sugar were good last time but that may have changed.

      I do get yeast infections. Uggggh. How do you keep your A1c managed?

        @Artismylyfe I eat practically no granulated sugar, make 98% of my "sweets" so I can use splenda and now I'm low carb as well so staying away from practically all white flour and using almond or coconut flour in any food that needs flour. I also check my sugars prior to eating anything that may raise it or drinking liquor. I make sure I'm not above 120 on sugars before I risk anything.

      Do you also get yeast infections and uti's almost everytime you turn your head?

      Yea I'm very tired. All the time. I have insomnia so I only sleep 4-6 hours. I got my a1c under control but my sugars bounce like a ball. I just got back from camp where I walked over 20,000 steps a day for a week and did not lose a pound only lost an inch of belly but I look down and I can't see the difference. I also started losing hair on my head which was likely due to spironolactone I was on for almost a year

      I'm so tired. I'm sure you are too. I look at my ever growing belly and I'm like Stop It! My blood pressure and A1c are through the roof and doctors keep wanting to push drugs on me that make me feel horrible.

      I can completely relate. I am overweight by now 60 pounds, I have a pretty dark and visible mustache and goatee. I hate shaving as it makes me feel manly when all I want to do is feel and look like a woman. I just found out past year that I have diabetes due to weight and my pcos and found out last month that I have high cholesterol due to my diabetes. 😥 I went on a full keto diet to lower my cholesterol but wound up lowering my sugars too much. It's damned if you do and damned if you don't.
