Insulin is a storage hormone and often insulin resistance can result in being overweight.
Poor blood sugar management, also known as dysglycemia or insulin resistance, is an epidemic problem in our society today. The biggest contributing factor is the number of refined carbohydrates eaten.
Insulin resistance can cause high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high LDL, low HDL, heart disease, depression, inflammation, pain, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid problems, and hormonal imbalances.
Your diet, amount of regular exercise and your unique genetic variations all contribute to your predisposition to insulin resistance.
