As much as you want to believe 2010 is going to be the best year yet....Life still happens.

I have felt for awhile that I needed to take Reagan to the doctor. In my heart, I knew something was not right with her. What I noticed was that she craved sweets like a smoker craves cigarettes. Her moods were up and down, etc.

Finally I took her to a regular OB doctor and they did blood work. It came back and the doctor called me to say that Reagan's insulin levels were very high. The norm is 20 at the highest. Her's was 56. They immediately schedule me with a reproductive endocrinologist.

We went and the doctor said Reagan has PCO - polycystic ovarian disease.
It screws up your hormones and makes your insulin levels high and makes you crave sweets like you wouldn't believe!!

Finally some answers. They are putting her BC pills and Metformin to bring her insulin level down. The pills are huge, but it could be worse.
Thank God for doctors and another blessing was that our insurance paid for her medicine 100%.

I've more to share, but have to pick up kids......
