Insulin is a vital hormone that controls the levels of sugar in our bodies. In a nutshell, it removes excess glucose from the blood through a process known as glycogenesis. However, problems with insulin are at the heart of many medical conditions. Insulin resistance occurs when your cells stop responding to insulin. This means that… Continue reading What Exactly Is Insulin Resistance?
Obesity, Prediabetes, and Diabetes Type 2 are associated with most of the diseases of modern society (cardiovascular/cerebrovascular disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease). These are all metabolic dysfunctions related to the malnutrition of overconsumption which leads to metabolic inflammation, or metal inflammation. This series of articles provides a recipe on how to make a healthy society, and… Continue reading The Secret To Becoming A Type 2 Diabetic
Insulin sensitivity can be described as the response the body elicits following the release of insulin. When the sensitivity is high, the body will require a small amount of insulin to reduce blood sugar levels. On the other hand, when sensitivity is low, the body may fail to respond to even high levels of insulin.… Continue reading Foods That Improve Insulin Sensitivity
Hyperinsulinemia (HI) serves as the common link between adipose tissue inflammation (ATI) and metabolic syndrome. The obesity-associated metabolic phenotype elevated pro-inflammatory cells (M1 macrophages and NK-cells) suppressed anti-inflammatory cells (M2 macrophages, eosinophils, and regulatory T-cells). Partial reduction of circulating insulin level attenuated excess calorie-induced ATI and improved insulin sensitivity. Mol Cell Endocrinol. 2018 Dec 5;477:15-28.… Continue reading Insulin is The Link Between Adipose Tissue Inflammation and Metabolic Syndrome.
