    Yes, I have read it, just finished a meta analysis on PCOS, obesity is a symptom of that. Very slender women have PCOS as well. There is a vast amount of misinformation on PCOS.

    In Richard Bernstein M.D.'s book (I got a copy from the library) "The Diabetes Solution" he has a complete chapter on PCOS, which he says is very common for obese young women. He says that ALL obese people are Insulin Resistant and can benefit from taking Metformin and unless they lose weight they WILL develop Type 2 diabetes in time. 95% of his patients have Type 2 diabetes, but he has had Type 1 since he was 12 and was told he wouldn't live past 42 because of complications, but he is a healthy 78.
