What is Insulin Resistance?

November 27, 2018
The Facts About Insulin Resistance According to Everyday Health, your body “breaks down carbs into glucose, or sugar, which is then released into your bloodstream [for energy].” In order for glucose to be properly absorbed, you need healthy levels of insulin, a hormone produced in your pancreas. Insulin resistance is when your body needs more insulin to absorb glucose into your cells, which can lead to a high blood sugar levels. Symptoms of Insulin Resistance You could be insulin resistant for years without showing any symptoms which is why it’s important for regular blood glucose level check-ups, like A1C testing. The only known symptoms are occasionally fatigue or dark patches formed on the skin (acanthuses nigricans). Insulin resistance increases your risk of pre-diabetes, diabetes, and other diseases if left untreated. Learn more about them here. Ways To Help Prevent Insulin Resistance:
