Has anybody ever had insulin resistance? How did you treat it? Change your diet, exercise, meds??
I know it's not really a pregnancy related health issue. I just didn't know where to post it.

It's a common 'symptom' of pcos, however not everyone gets it. I try to control mine through diet - low gi, no sugar, etc. After putting on weight quickly after last mc, I got some bloods done and doctor wants to trial metformin once we have finished our family. I also workout daily. Lots of ideas in diabetes cook books I find.

My fs did tests and found I had slight insulin resistance, I lost weight and it went back to normal with out the need for meds.

I'm thin (48kg) and I have it. I was on metformin to TTC. I find a low GI diet is good for me.

Did you ladies see a specialist about it? I'm seeing a dietician on Saturday but I'm so confused about it all.

I was recently diagnosed with IR and the doc wants me to go to a dietitian but I haven't yet.

I was seeing a holistic GP who put me on a list of vitamins, IV treatment and healthy eating at set times which also helped with weight loss (if you need to lose weight). Took me a good 6 months but its back to normal now.

I had mild insulin resistance and pcos and saw a dietician at the suggestion of my FS. I changed my diet to be very low carb from lunchtime onwards, and got my bmi from 25 to 22 in three months. I just did another glucose tolerance test at 27 weeks pregnant (conceived naturally after losing weight, changing diet and previously not ovulating) and no longer have IR so it can be reversed!

I found my IR would go on holiday during pregnancy, and then stays that way for an unknown amount of time afterwards. I have a BMI of 22 and have IR. I have heard of many people who see it disappear after losing weight or a diet change.
