What is a1c?

I hate being told to watch what I eat and exercise. Even though its good advice, it's annoying.

Yes! 5.9 is slightly elevated! Good luck, the best way for you to lose weight and eat healthily would be to follow a low glycemic index lifestyle or something similar such as paleo! You might have heard of them. They're I swear the only type of diets that work for us ladies with PCOS. And being in metformin while following the diet helps SO MUCH....

Also do a little research on Google about how grains and dairy are bad for PCOS. Its amazing...


Good luck hun! My a1c was also 5.9 a few years ago. The metformin alone will help a bit but its more like a bandaid... eating super healthy is whatcha need<3

Wow, they must be super strict!  I thought anything under 7 or 6 was good for a diabetic.  Maybe that's for a type 1 diabetic??  Anyway, I think you're doing good!  I would totally way higher!  Good luck!
