Symptoms of Insulin Resistance



As the pace of life has sped up over the last hundred years, the quality of the American diet has been in decline. As a result of our generally poor eating habits, many Americans find themselves suffering from diabetes. In short, improper nutrition, over time, leaves a diabetic's body unable to properly regulate insulin levels in the blood.

The level of insulin in a person's blood controls the amount of sugar, in the form of glucose, that the body can transfer to the cells to make energy.

The surprising reality is that improper levels of insulin can also cause noticeable effects in non-diabetics. Not hungry in the morning? Feel like eating right after you've had a full meal? Do you get shaky when you haven't eaten in a few hours? If these symptoms apply to you, you might be insulin resistant.

In the video below, Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D. explains the symptoms of insulin resistance.
