The Insulin Resistance Cycle

I have several family members and friends who have Insulin Resistance.  I decided to do some research on this. Remember that my research and blog is for information only.  It is up to you and your Dr., and/or Nutritionist to decide what is best for your health. That being said, I will include some links that you can look at for more information.

“Insulin Resistance is when cells in your body fat, muscles and liver start resisting or ignoring the signal that the hormone insulin is trying to send out - which is to grab glucose out of our blood stream and put it into our cells.”  Insulin Resistance Causes and Symptoms - EndocrineWeb

Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas.  Insulin helps control your blood sugar. It also has many other functions in your system.  Including helping to control lipids, a form of fat. Insulin helps control protein and carbohydrates.

Muscles and fat cells do not respond properly when insulin resistance develops. More insulin is needed for these systems to work well and eventually, even the extra insulin doesn't work.

Severe illness can also affect your insulin resistance.  Type 2 diabetes and critical illness: spot the difference - On Medicine This website talks about the insulin resistance in critical illness and type 2 diabetes. There are some differences, such as type 2 diabetes is long term, while insulin resistance during illness is short term.  They also state that insulin resistance during the acute stage of illness is considered an adaptive component of the stress response. After the acute illness phase, continued insulin resistance is associated with the toxicity of hyperglycemia.  This may lead to type 2 diabetes after the illness is over.

“The presence of diabetes is based on medical records, where the type of diabetes, the type of control and treatment are often undefined.”

“The metrics used to report and describe stress hyperglycemia is highly variable”   Drs., who may not be familiar with this may find the reports confusing.

In my research, I found several websites which stated that obesity, lack of exercise and poor eating habits contribute to insulin resistance.  Insulin resistance may also be caused by stress, lack of or poor sleeping patterns, some medications, smoking, pregnancy, and metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is a group of symptoms, including but not limited to high blood sugar, high blood pressure, excess weight or fat around the waist area and abnormal cholesterol levels.    Even if you have one or two of these symptoms, it doesn’t mean you have metabolic syndrome. This syndrome can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes and possibly stroke.

How can you help control insulin resistance naturally?  I found many websites which mentioned many ways and methods to help you with this.  However, my favourite website is Healthline. 14 Natural Ways to Improve Your Insulin Sensitivity - Healthline

I will do further blogs on some of these health problems and/or conditions. Remember to discuss any changes to your activities and/or diet with your Dr. and/or Nutritionist.
