Is there a connection between PCOS and diabetes or a specific kind of diabetes?

There is definately a link between PCOS and type 2. There are studies going on regarding insulin resistance and how it involves PCOS and T2. Apparently the statistical link is quite strong. Since they are both endocrine related issues I am not surprised. Many times one endocrine problem will be accompanied by another.

Aren't skin tags in the creases of the body and darkening of the skin in these areas also symptoms?
