Scientists Discover Insulin Sensitivity Gene - 1in10

What does this mean for Cysters?

This discovery finally conquers the myth that insulin resistance, and consequently Type II Diabetes, are not "lifestyle disorders". By discovering the gene mutation responsible for insulin sensitivity, researchers now have the information needed to experiment with treating the gene mutations believed to be associated with insulin resistance and Type II Diabetes.

Because insulin resistance and PCOS are so closely linked, we can only hope that this discovery puts a bug in the ear of PCOS researchers and gives them a renewed sense of hope for identifying the gene or genes responsible for PCOS.

Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy!
