Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance happens because your body's cells are trying to protect themselves from the toxic effects of high levels of insulin in your blood.

It is important.

So controlling sensitivity is extremely important.

How sensitive are your cells to it?

Who has heard of this?

Insulin is not a drug

Insulin is the hormone responsible for getting glucose (sugar) in the blood into cells throughout the body to use as fuel.

The cells of people with type 2 diabetes do not respond adequately. As a result, levels of both glucose and insulin in the blood remain high.

Another major effect is on fat, that is, it prevents you from burning it.

What happens is that you have an excess floating around all your body.

What?

You don’t burn that fat but sugar is taken away from your muscles. So you feel tired and without energy.

What causes It?

Any time your cells are exposed to insulin they are going to become more resistant. What you eat or your diet has the most effect.

What happens if you eat sugar?

We only have one hormone that lowers sugar, and that's insulin.

So this very harmful process goes on and on until your doctor tells you that you are a diabetic!

Can Sensitivity Be Restored?

If you eliminate that need to burn sugar, you don't need such high levels of sugar even if you are insulin resistant.

Insulin is associated with heart disease, cancer and many other conditions often lumped together and called metabolic syndrome.

Have Good Health Through Balance?

Maintaining healthy glucose (sugar) levels is an important part of good health for millions of people around the world.

Metabolic and endocrine disorders keep your body from producing or properly using insulin, a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starch and other foods into energy needed for daily life.

Heart Healthy food promotes healthy glucose levels in the body and provides natural support to both your metabolic and endocrine systems.

In addition minerals; herbs and plant nutrients have been clinically shown to support healthy hormone production, improve glucose tolerance and promote pancreatic health.

Recent reports provide increasing evidence that low-grade inflammation is involved in the progression of Type 2 diabetes and associated complications.

Elevated levels of some inflammatory markers in the body can often predict the development of Type 2 diabetes.

  • Diabetes - sixth leading cause of death listed on United States death certificates in 2000.

  • The American Diabetes Association reports that there are 18.2 million people in the United States who have diabetes.

  • An estimated 13 million have been diagnosed with diabetes

  • More than five million people are unaware that they have the disease

Diabetes is divided into two major subgroups: Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

The sugar level problem in Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune response of insulin deficiency and in Type 2 by insulin deficiency or insulin resistance.
