Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Inflammation

To reverse diabetes, weight loss and a low-carbohydrate diet must be combined. These are independent factors for reversing diabetes. Weight loss can achieve diabetes reversal through decompressing (decongesting) the liver and pancreas, improving blood flow, and reducing adipocyte hormonal responses. As the worldwide epidemic of obesity continues to worsen, the epidemic of type 2 diabetes […]
