    Hello everyone,

    Since having all these hormonal symptoms, hairloss, acne, hair growth - I have lost 30 pounds and can't seem to gain any weight. I have high insulin levels during a glucose tolerance test so they think I am insulin resist. Does anyone else have thin PCOS and have problems gaining weight? My estrogen is low so I want to gain about 5-10 punds. I continue to loose hair- a lot of it. These symptoms came on suddenly at age 40 - this does not make sense to me.

    I'm also thin and have been diagnosed with PCOS. I'm still waiting to do my glucose tolerance test. But my periods are all out of whack and I have diffuse hair thinning all over my scalp. I've heard that lean PCOS is highly aggravated by stress, so I've been trying to decrease my stress levels.
