What is Insulin Resistance?

It is important to understand what is Insulin Resistance when it comes to diabetes. Sometimes referred to as “prediabetes”, insulin resistance results from abnormal levels of insulin in the blood. If left unchecked insulin resistance can lead to diabetes. This video explains, (in a way you have never seen before!) what is insulin resistance and how it happens. It discusses the role of the pancreas and of insulin. Written by endocrinologists Dr. Susan Kim and Dr. Christopher Palmeiro and produced by Doctablet®

    What if you have hyperinsulinemia with this? How does that work? Is there lots of insulin in the pancreas or is there lots of insulin in the blood??
