Dr just called. Our 17 yr old has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) based on the tests she's had (and no menses).
She has few symptoms until recently. Growth in facial hair, weight has been an issue, and lack of menses. (Has never had.)
We'll see an endocrinologist when the referral goes through.
The nurse just called and said this is a "rather serious case for someone so young because her insulin numbers on yesterday's test were off the charts.". Our daughter's fasting insulin (not glucose) level was 36, at one hour (after the drink) it was 230, and at two hours it was 290.
My question is, has anyone else had a teen with this? What do they do to get the hormones back in balance?
