WEFOUNDThe Insulin Resistance Diet Plan and Cookbook: Lose Weight, Manage PCOS, and Prevent Prediabetes


Insulin resistance (IR) is a pathological condition in which cells fail to respond normally to the hormone insulin . The body produces insulin when glucose starts to ...

18.07.2017  · Defines insulin resistance and prediabetes and describes diagnosis. Lists ways to treat these conditions to help avoid developing diabetes.

30.01.2015  · Insulin resistance is a condition that is a precursor to developing type 2 diabetes. Causes of insulin resistance include metabolic syndrome, pregnancy ...

In the entire treatment here, I can't find any reference to systemic inflammation or inflammatory signaling, which a lot of work suggests underpins IR - obesity causes upregulation of inflammatory signaling, as does lack of exercise, Western diet pattern, sleep deprivation, and Vit D deficiency - all factors in IR, metabolic syndrome and type II diabetes. How does this treatment include so many details, and miss the big picture so completely? dfwatt, HMS. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.6.180.11 ( talk ) 16:08, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

I added back the reference to the presentation of Dr. Andrew P. Selwyn on CME on Diabetes that has been deleted during (I suppose) a spamming done a few days ago. This source has been used for the Pathophysiology section. -Eridanis

There is a lot of vague, speculative, or unsourced information in this article. Just speaking as an avid fan of Wikipedia and a non-expert regarding the subject of insulin, it isn't very useful -- in fact I think anyone who doesn't look at it with a critical eye could be misled re: topics like what causes insulin resistance by some of the speculation and unsourced, original research in this article. If the science hasn't established these things, the article should just say so. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.168.112.203 ( talk ) 12:21, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

The body is truly fascinating the way it works because there is a neural network in the pancreas and digestive tract that coordinate insulin release. Insulin helps to regulate blood sugar and gets activated predominantly when we eat sugar and carbohydrates . But although sugar and carbs are the biggest influence of this stimulation, fats, proteins, and other hormones can influence insulin release as well.

In our body, glycemic control (aka blood sugar level ) is kept within a tight range. This is very important to the function of our body and so is insulin, insufficient or excess insulin secretion is life threatening. We see this in type 1 diabetes where the person must have insulin injections in order to survive. And in type 2 diabetes we see the effects of high blood sugar and insulin resulting in cardiovascular issues, oxidative stress, eye, kidney, and peripheral nerve problems.

Insulin action is required throughout the body as the central nervous system uses it’s signals to control energy metabolism and balance, for reproduction, for brain function, and other functions too. But it's main role is as our energy storage hormone.

Your pancreas makes a hormone called insulin. It's what lets your cells turn glucose from the food you eat into energy. People with type 2 diabetes make insulin, but their cells don't use it as well as they should. Doctors call this insulin resistance.

At first, the pancreas makes more insulin to try to get glucose into the cells. But eventually it can't keep up, and the sugar builds up in your blood instead.
