Diabetologist 's  Response
this disease is also named diabetic bearded syndrome
reduction of insulin resistance and good control of diabetes is the best option
hirsutism is caused due to excess androgens
if you are overweight ,try to reduce the weight so that fat cells may not help in production of androgens
on what treatment are you on right now
to reduce the testosteron elevels flutamide may be given
Eflornithine works by blocking the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) that stimulates hair growth. Eflornithine HCl cream 13.9% has been shown to slow the rate of hair growth in animal and human studies.
some other methods for hair removal
kuppameni powder
a brown colored herbalpowder available in india(told to be made of sea mud )i am not sure of the name,when applied i,it removesthe hair in 2 minutes without any side effects

see to it that you dont catch infections while waxing

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Munish Sood's  Response
1. going by the diagnosis it will be presumed that you are a female, because synonym of this disease is Diabetic Bearded Woman Syndrome and occurs primarily in post menopausal women and is characterized by insulin resistance (type 2 Diabetes) and androgen excess.
2. It combines features of both: Adrenogenital+ Cushing syndrome.
3. you haven't mentioned about your blood glucose level, blood pressure measurement, neither any symptom related to the syndrome like :deep voice, hirsutism,clitoral hypertrophy, amenorrhea, osteoporosis or adrenal adenoma?
4. treatment is mechanical removal or bleaching of excess hair and hormonal therapy to correct Endocrinal imbalances related to systemic diseases.
