Diabetes 2, PCOS, and natural progesterone
I have a question about PCOS, diabetes 2, and natural progesterone. My daughter is 37 years old. She has been suffering from PCOS for many years. She had a miscarriage 11 years ago.
Next time she got pregnant her doctor checked her progesterone level, it was much too low, and he prescribed her Utrogestan, which is micronized natural progesterone in capsules for the vagina. And she got a wonderful daughter who is 9 years old now. She is using the pill – Cerazette (Desogestrel). Recently my daughter was diagnosed with diabetes 2, – with excessive sugar in her blood; – insulin resistance. She is having medicines, Januvia and Amaryl (she could not tolerant Glucophage (Metformin)). But her sugar level is still much too high. Do you think that Natpro progesterone cream could help to lower her sugar and insulin level? Here in Iceland we cannot have natural progesterone. Neither prescribed by a doctor nor ordered and posted from another country. It is forbidden by the Icelandic ADO. But I have used it myself (I am 61 years old) for some months now with good benefits for my health, by ordering it to an address in the USA and getting it by family member travelling from there to Iceland. I am wondering if natural progesterone could help my daughter with her sugar level? With thanks and my best regards, SB
