You could be suffering from insulin resistance without even knowing it. But how will you be able to tell?
Insulin resistance can often be tricky to spot in its early stages since it may take years before noticeable symptoms become visible.
What Exactly is Insulin Resistance?
In short, insulin resistance is a condition where the body’s cells become resistant to the effects of the hormone known as insulin. This is a problem since insulin is what keeps the blood sugar levels in the body stable.
Insulin resistance results in constant high blood sugar levels in the body, which can lead to numerous other health issues.
What are the symptoms of insulin resistance?
Although there might not be any clear-cut symptoms at first, here are a few signs to look out for that may indicate that you could be insulin resistant…
- Extreme thirst
- Frequent urination
- Not feeling full after a meal
- Tingling in the hands and feet due to nerve damage
- Constantly feeling fatigue
Common Complications of Insulin Resistance:
Insulin resistance may lead to various other health complications, but the most common ones are…
- Acanthosis Nigricans –
This is a skin condition where dark patches appear on the back of the neck, in the armpits, and on the groin. Sometimes this can be the first noticeable symptom of insulin resistance.
There is no treatment specifically for the dark patches on the skin, but some of the original skin colour can be regained by treating the root cause, which is insulin resistance.
- Damage to the Blood Vessels –
Seeing that insulin resistance leads to constant levels of high blood sugar in the body, it can cause damage and deterioration in the blood vessels which in turn leads to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
- Type-2 Diabetes –
More often than not insulin resistance leads to type-2 diabetes, and this is once again due to the continuous high blood sugar levels. As with insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes may only be discovered after several months or years, after which it might have already caused significant harm to the body.
What causes insulin resistance?
Insulin resistance can be caused by different factors, or a combination f these factors. The most common causes of insulin resistance are…
- Certain medications
- A group of conditions known as the metabolic syndrome.
- Infection or severe illness
- Inactivity and excess weight
- Steroid use
How is insulin resistance diagnosed?
Usually, the measurement of the fasting blood glucose levels, along with the insulin levels will be sufficient in determining whether or not you suffer from insulin resistance and/or diabetes.
Moreover, a qualified healthcare professional may be able to determine what risk you face for developing insulin resistance by taking a detailed history, performing a physical examination, and simple laboratory testing based on individual risk factors.
What can I do to treat or prevent insulin resistance?
Healthy Lifestyle –
The best way to keep the likelihood of developing insulin resistance to a minimum is by making healthy lifestyle choices.
This means following a healthy eating plan and getting enough exercise. It can help you maintain a healthy weight, as well as balanced blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
All of this is even more important if you have already been diagnosed with insulin resistance or pre-diabetes. It is a slippery slope from here to type-2 diabetes.

By taking the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement with food, it can assist in the lowering the Glycemic Index of the food you eat and therefore helping to lower insulin levels to prevent diabetes or diabetes health complications.
