Hi Arshiya! Insulin resistance & pcos can be closely related. Some basic signs of insulin resistance can be being overweight, having a wider waistline, high BP,elevated lipid profile, elevated fasting levels, increased hunger, sudden weight gain & difficulty in losing weight. Oral glucose tolerance test can be done to understand one's glucose tolerance for more detailed information. Now for the management - Exercise daily,eat clean & healthy especially include more fibre & lean protein in your diet, drink plenty of water, practice mindfulness to control stress, and sleep well. Hope this helps!
