No, your A1C and glucose levels can be perfectly normal even if you are insulin resistant. Did they test your insulin levels? If you are insulin resistant, your insulin levels should be higher than normal.

Also, it is possible to have PCOS and not be insulin resistant. As a syndrome, PCOS has multiple symptoms and presents itself differently in different women. If you are in doubt, you might be well served to seek a second opinion.

I went to the doctor a week ago Wednesday and she told me she was pretty sure I had PCOS based on my symptoms, but would do lab work to find out for sure. She was so confident though, that she went ahead and started me on Metformin. I got a letter in the mail yesterday with my lab results and all my levels and both my A1C and Glucose levels were extremely amazing and considered normal. If PCOS makes you insulin-resistant, wouldn't they have been high if I had PCOS? Any feedback would be great!
