Blood Sugar

I think I have an issue with letting my blood sugar get too low. I'm just not always hungry, or I get hungry once a day and don't really feel like eating the rest of the day. Or I'll "graze", eat little things here and there.

Maybe I should start keeping track of my blood sugar numbers. I have no idea if I have insulin resistance, but diabetes and hypoglycemia run in my family. No idea how often you should test if you have PCOS, I guess that's more research I need to do.

I've just been reading so many different things lately, I feel like my brain is getting full.

I thought about taking pictures of the areas where I have PCOS symptoms (excess hair, hair loss, acne, Anthracosis Nigricans, etc.)as a sort of "base line"- it's where I am at right now. Something to look back at and compare to. Will it help? I don't know. Maybe. We shall see.

Now if only I could find my camera.


  1. I would keep an eye on your blood sugar since it does run in your family and the fact that you have PCOS.

    My prayers go out to you! If you have any questions or just need to vent, contact me.

    I also have a blog: I try to find natural ways to help with PCOS symptoms as well as sharing recipes, latest news about PCOS, and my own personal journey with PCOS.

    Much love!

  2. That is awesome Kristen. I will definitely check out your blog. I really want to keep things as natural as possible for as long as possible, my body seems to respond so much better that way.
