You may have Insulin Resistance and we can help you with this frustrating condition
Many people that struggle with their weight have a primarily genetic condition called Insulin Resistance Syndrome (IRS), also called Metabolic Syndrome. People who are insulin resistant secrete too much insulin from their pancreas at mealtime because their insulin receptors (on fat and muscle tissues) are “resistant” to recognizing normal amounts of insulin. High insulin levels stimulate the appetite for carbohydrate rich foods and stimulate fat storage, particularly in the belly. This is a vicious cycle because the more fat you store, the more insulin resistant you become, the more carbohydrates you eat, and the more weight you gain.
This excess insulin may also cause many health risks such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Most notably, IRS is often called Pre-diabetes because once the overworked pancreas wears out from excess insulin production, full-blown diabetes develops. These conditions are often preventable if caught early enough. Even if you already have some medical problems, it’s never too late to improve your health.
