Insulin resistance is something that a number of my clients have been diagnosed with.

What is it?

IR is a resistance to the hormone insulin, resulting in increasing blood sugar.

The hormone insulin helps control the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood. With insulin resistance, the body’s cells don’t respond normally to insulin. Glucose can’t enter the cells as easily, so it builds up in the blood. This can eventually lead to type 2 diabetes.

Treatment can help, but this condition can’t be cured

🌟 Requires a medical diagnosis

🌟 Lab tests or imaging always required

🌟 Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong

This is something that should be managed with diet and with your doctor. As well as a qualified professional in nutrition.

I have always been sensitive to carbs and battled with my weight. In my early 20s I was a sweet addict who used to eat jelly tots for breakfast, I lived on sugar and ended up borderline diabetic with IR. It was hell. I worked hard to reverse my IR, it’s never been completely gone and I still have to manage it with diet and exercise.

I have also worked with numerous clients with IR to help them reduce the systems and in most cases reverse IR(not fully but massive improvements)

Your diet is paramount in the journey to healing.
