People really should get their blood work done. I'm no longer insulin resistant but my doctor keeps an eye on my a1c level so I get blood work quarterly for everything including that.

this was me as well....

I had PCOS and a lot of women who have PCOS also have IR as well.

I have GD. It's annoying because I never test high eating my normal diet. My doctor even told me to check it once a week cause they don't see my numbers moving. the diagnostic test they give you challenges how effective your body is after ingesting pure sugar. I'm a meat veggies, salt, and salad girl rather than sweets so I'm guessing my body already knew the deal.


Anyway, now I'm at higher risk for developing type 2 later in life. So I have to make sure to never let my weight get out of control and make sure I'm tested during my physical exams from now in.

I usually check mine at home about once a month. I'm not diabetic/pre diabetic, and never had any issues but I just like to know what's going on. I guess it's like the scale thing lol

I have regular physicals too but I check it and my b-pressure (and other things) at home just for my own info.

I make sure to check my stats every years because I don't always eat right. I love my soul/comfort food but I do it in moderation.
