Signs and Symptoms:
High blood sugar levels, High Insulin Levels, or type 2-diabetes
Normally, food is absorbed into the bloodstream in the form of sugars such as glucose and other basic substances. The increase in sugar in the bloodstream signals the pancreas (an organ located behind the stomach) to increase the secretion of a hormone called insulin. This hormone attaches to cells, removing sugar from the bloodstream so that it can be used for energy.
In insulin resistance, the body’s cells have a diminished ability to respond to the action of the insulin hormone. To compensate for the insulin resistance, the pancreas secretes more insulin.
People with this syndrome have insulin resistance and high levels of insulin in the blood as a marker of the disease rather than a cause.
Over time people with insulin resistance can develop high sugars or diabetes as the high insulin levels can no longer compensate for elevated sugars.
This occurs because the pancreas is unable to secrete enough insulin to overcome the insulin resistance. Blood sugar levels rise and pre-diabetes or diabetes is diagnosed.
Insulin resistance can be reversed if you follow a proper low GI diet, exercise, get enough sleep, control stress and take a supplement like the Manna Blood Sugar Support caplets with each meal to control blood sugar levels as well as to help the body to require less insulin.
