With the high testosterone and glucose levels as well as the ovarian cysts, it's possible she could have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which is a metabolic disorder of insulin resistance. Cystic ovaries are a common manifestation of this disorder. The typical presentation of ovarian cysts associated with PCOS is a strand of pearls which cannot always be differentiated as separate cysts on ultrasound. These types of cysts do not require treatment. Girls / women with PCOS who are overweight can usually improve their insulin resistance as well as the other characteristics of PCOS by losing some weight.

Best of luck in finding a doctor who can help her.
