    Hey guys I acctually had my doctor appointment yesterday to get my test results and I am a bit confused. if anyone understands this please try to reexplain it to me cause I am lost lol.

    She said my biopsy came back beinge....good

    my ultrasound showed a thick endometrium (I was coming to the end of the medicine and was supposed to get my period the next couple days so she said that could be why but she is gonna repeat it. ) and that is showed possible hyperplasia but she thinks it doesn't when she looked at it and that it would have showed in the biposy and it didn't

    then my blood LFT's were slighly elevated and they always have been (I have major work ups couple years back and it was said thay as long as the stay at the slightly elevated level and don't increaase there is nothing to worry about) and my fasting insulin was extremely high, but my glucose was completely normal. SO this is where I am confused!

    She said I do not have diabetes...that I am insulin resistant and will take metaformen? starting in january when I go back to see her. Now when I look up insulin just talks about type 2 diabetes...and she specifically said I didn't have it. Also wouldn't he medication mess me up if its for diabetes...if you know what I am talking about let me know

    Lisa- Sometimes women that have polycystic ovarian disease, one of the symptoms is insulin resistance and the treatment is metformin....I don't know if that is what the doctor is thinking. Metformin will help with your insulin resistance whatever the diagnosis as it will help your cells respond better to your insulin and decrease the hyperproduction of insulin in your body. Anyway this is just a thought, but definitely talk to your doctor in more detail. Write down your questions so you cover all the areas you are concerned about.

    but I am not understanding why my glucose isn't messed up if I have an over production of insulin...and if my body isn't recognizing the insulin do I not have high glucose...and won't the medication make my glucose go low or high

    How I understand that the reason your glucose is still normal is because your hyper production of insulin so far is forcing the cells to take the insulin, but over time the cells will become more restistant to the insulin and cause your glucose levels to rise. Metformin will encourage the cells to be less resistant to insulin and in turn your pancreas will produce less insulin. I would recommend monitoring your glucose levels with the start of metformin to see how you respond to the medicine.

    My ultra sound was normal. The plan is if this repeats I will take the pill for a couple of cycles and hope this straightens it out. Thanks for all your replys.
