From Roseville, California, USA:

I am 45 years old, and as a teenager was diagnosed with Stein-Leventhal syndrome (PCOS), and my 13 year old son has type 1 diabetes. Is there any relationship between my PCOS and my son's type 1 diabetes?


There is no known connection between Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and type 1A (autoimmune) diabetes which is what I presume your son has.


Additional comments from Dr. Bill Jones:

I agree that there is probably not a relationship between your PCOS and the son's type 1 diabetes.
