Insulite Laboratories' Customer Service Team Answers Your Frequently Asked Questions About Ordering the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System.

 


How do the symptoms of type 2 diabetes relate to insulin resistance?

If the insulin sensitivity of the walls of your body's cells has been reduced by insulin resistance, your ability to lose weight is severely compromised. Insulin receptors on individual cell walls allow glucose to pass through and be converted to energy.

Reduced insulin sensitivity causes a lot of glucose to be "rejected" by the cell, which results in it free-floating in the blood stream. This leads to elevated levels of blood sugar, which are sent to the liver. Once there, the sugar is converted into fat and stored via the blood stream throughout the body in a process that can lead to weight gain and obesity, which can underlie a wide variety of other serious conditions.

Woman sitting next to a man reclining in a rocking chair. Excess, free-floating insulin also has a harmful effect. It can damage the lining of the arteries and contribute to the development of atherosclerosis, which is characterized by a dangerous build-up of plaque on the artery walls.

The imbalance of glucose and insulin caused by insulin resistance can lead to a greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease leading to a heart attack or stroke because it also causes increased levels of triglycerides. These are fat-storing substances carried through the blood stream to the tissues.

As your weight increases, stressors build up on the entire cardiovascular system. The heart and lungs, for example, have to work harder to distribute an adequate amount of freshly-oxygenated blood throughout the body.

As well as the increase in triglycerides, there is also a rise in LDL "bad" cholesterol and a lowering of "good" HDL cholesterol. This combination increases the risk of a heart attack and stroke.

Increased insulin and glucose levels have also been proven to cause changes in the kidneys' ability to remove salt, leading to hypertension, as well as increasing the risk of blood clot formation.

All of these are key factors in type 2 diabetes. But reversing insulin resistance and losing weight can lead to increased insulin sensitivity, which can reduce your dependence on insulin.

This, in turn, can greatly improve your sense of well-being and help reduce the additional risk to persons with diabetes of developing serious complications like declining vision, kidney disease and the need for amputation.

Are certain racial groups prone to developing diabetes?

Male lab technician looking at a test tube.Yes. While different forms of diabetes occur in people of all ages and races, research has shown that some racial groups have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This condition is more common in African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans as well as Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Regarding age, the elderly are also at greater risk.

How does the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System help people suffering from Type 2 Diabetes?

This product has been designed specifically for people suffering from the type 2 diabetes. The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is an important strategy for reversing insulin resistance, a root cause of obesity and diabetes. It can also increase insulin sensitivity, resulting in more efficient management of diabetes and better health as a well as reducing the risk of developing serious Diabetic complications like declining vision, kidney disease and the need for amputation.

Are there any stimulants in the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management products?

No. We do not believe the stimulant approach is beneficial for long term weight loss, which is vital for reversing insulin resistance and facilitating weight loss, which are vital to increased insulin sensitivity and more effective management of diabetes. In fact, reducing one's appetite and over stimulating the body will only cause a rebound of weight gain! Stimulants can be dangerous when taken on a daily basis and Insulite Laboratories is committed to your well being by providing a lasting, safe, scientifically-based solution to your weight and health problems.

Additionally, weight loss products containing stimulants can cause problems if you have high blood pressure, glaucoma, edema, a history of stroke, if you are pregnant or if you experience heart palpitations or hyperaldosteronism.

How long do I stay on the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Young lady walking with a book in her right hand.Scientific research overwhelmingly confirms the fact that a truly effective change in the body at a cellular level needs to be gradual. You did not become overweight and Insulin Resistant overnight. Therefore, it is not realistic or safe to attempt or expect a complete reversal in a few days. We recommend that you follow the guidelines of the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System for at least six months. Most of our customers will need to stay on the system for at least one year. Keep in mind that we recommend your weight loss does not exceed ½ to 1 lb. per week. At the end of 6 months, we would like to evaluate your progress with you and make recommendations for a course of action based on that evaluation. Just email us to arrange a complimentary telephone consultation with our Consulting & Advisory Teams. Please do not be discouraged! Research shows that the rapid weight loss evident in most fad diets is almost immediately followed by rapid weight gain. Why? Because the body has a memory. If you have been overweight for some time, your body recognizes that weight as its normal state. When you lose weight quickly, the body does not have time to habituate. It sees the rapid weight loss as abnormal and, once a diet is stopped, it makes an effort to get back as quickly as possible to the normal retaining of fat. At Insulite Laboratories, we emphasize gradual weight loss so that the body can slowly adapt to a lighter weight as well as to eliminate the dreaded "rebound effect" of weight loss and gain. Insulite Laboratories wants you to be healthy for life, not thin for one event in your life. Because of the factors above, we recommend that you dedicate at least six months to the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System.

How many pills are there to take every day?

The SensitX and RejuvenX products are both to be taken 2 caps twice per day (4 caps of each per day). The GlucX product is designed to slow the absorption of sugar in the blood stream. It is recommended to take 3 caps twice per day between meals. The OmegaX product is recommended at 2 caps twice a day with food.

The total number of pills is greater than most programs because we at Insulite Laboratories know that there is no one pill that can affect the same type of changes as our system. In fact, you are changing numerous ways in which your body heals itself and these changes need to be supported with therapeutic doses of nutrients.

How should I take the pills for the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

With breakfast:   SensitX – 2 caps and RejuvenX – 2 caps
Between breakfast and lunch:    GlucX – 3 caps
With Lunch:   SensitX – 2 caps, RejuvenX – 2 caps and OmegaX – 2 caps
With Dinner:   OmegaX – 2 caps
After dinner/before bed:   GlucX – 3 caps

If you forget to take any of the supplements with breakfast or lunch, you can take that dose with dinner.

Has the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System been approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration)?

Currently, there are no nutritional supplements for weight loss or diabetes available over the counter that are FDA-approved. At present, the FDA does not regulate the manufacture of these types of products. Therefore, the Insulite Diabetes Advanced management System has not been approved by the FDA.

Woman and man walking their bicycles down a path lined with trees.Our supplements are manufactured using high-quality nutrients that will affect metabolic change. Our manufacturer certifies the authenticity of all ingredients in our formulas. Additionally, research conducted by Insulite Laboratories confirms the safety of this formulation of nutrients. There are no toxicities to any ingredients in any of our formulas.

How do I dispose of the Insulite Supplements?

For information regarding the proper methods of disposing of unused medicines please visit the FDA website at www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm101653.htm

Are the Insulite supplements made in the USA?

Yes, all of our supplements, which are also known as nutraceuticals, are made in the USA.

What is the source of the ingredients (vitamins, minerals and herbs) in your nutraceuticals?

They come from various sources. The adrenals are a high quality freeze dried mix from Denmark; they are porcine. All flax seed is made from organic flax seeds sourced from the northern USA.

Most minerals, some extracts, and vitamins are sourced from an international source which is the industry standard.

How can I be sure that the ingredients in the Insulite supplements are of the highest quality?

Insulite Laboratories develops relationships only with reputable suppliers and manufacturers who maintain the highest standards of production and testing to ensure the purity and integrity of the ingredients. All products have a certificate of analysis from their source and each batch is individually tested for microbial limits (when applicable), purity, and heavy metals.

Our manufacturers are a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) company that is fully compliant with the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) regulations.

The FDA has recently released extensive new cGMP laws for dietary supplement manufacturers with a 2010 deadline for full compliance. Our manufacturer is on schedule to meet the new regulations in advance of the "comply by" date. They are inspected by the FDA and local/state health departments on a drop in basis. There have never been any complaints from these agencies.

Certificates of Analysis for the Insulite Systems' supplements are available for review by customers. Email us your name, email address, supplement name, i.e. GlucX and the Lot numbers stamped on the side of the bottles.

What is the shelf life of the Insulite supplements?

Two (2) years from date of production. Expiration dates are clearly marked on all Insulite Laboratories supplement bottles. 

Do I need a prescription for the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

No, a prescription is not required.

Is your system covered by insurance?

Unfortunately at this time, insurance companies do not recognize the use of nutritional supplements and rarely reimburse for them. Some companies do, in fact, reimburse their insured but the vast majority do not. In the future, we hope that our Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is adopted by conventional medicine and is used routinely as treatment for insulin resistance and its related disorders.

Is there anything in the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System that will increase blood pressure?

Man having his blood pressure checked.No. There are no ingredients in the formulas that will have a negative impact on blood pressure levels. One additional long term benefit of using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is that, by lowering circulating fasting insulin levels, and your weight you will eventually reduce high blood pressure. Elevated levels of insulin will actually damage the interior lining of vessels contributing to high blood pressure, also known as hypertension.

Can I purchase the supplements only, without the diet and exercise guidelines?

The diet and exercise guidelines are included in the price of the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System. We do not sell the different elements individually, because the System was designed to work as a whole. Insulite Laboratories finds that the best results are achieved when combining all of the supplements with lifestyle changes.

Even if you already have a "good" diet and you exercise regularly, you will likely benefit from the suggestions offered in the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System. Our diet and exercise guidelines were designed to enhance the effects of the System.

How will I feel when I use the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Woman eating an apple.As you begin the Nutrition and Exercise Plans, and the longer you use the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System, you should feel more energized and your levels of stamina are apt to stay constant throughout the day. Afternoon lulls in focus or concentration should decrease. You are certain to experience a marked reduction in cravings for simple carbohydrates in the early afternoon. Most people will also sleep more soundly and will awake more refreshed in the morning.

Can I use oral contraceptives while on the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Yes. The nutrients in the System will not interfere with the oral birth control pill, nor will they produce side effects.

I am gluten-sensitive. Is there any ingredient in the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System that would create an allergic reaction?

There are no products with gluten in any of our formulations.

I have been diagnosed with diabetes but don't have problems with weight gain. Would the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System still work for me?

Yes. We recommend that you still comply with the diet, exercise and nutrient supplementation to reverse insulin resistance and increase your sensitivity to insulin. The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Diabetes System is designed to reduce elevated insulin levels, lower cholesterol, blood pressure, CRP (C-reactive protein) and homocysteine.

Is your product appropriate for someone with hypoglycemia?

Individual reviewing the results on a Glucose testing machine.Yes. However, we recommend that you are careful about watching your blood sugar levels for several weeks when first starting the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System. It is important to monitor your blood sugar levels 3-4 times per day, especially initially. The nutrients in this formula are effective at stabilizing blood sugar. The diet changes that we recommend require that people with hypoglycemia are vigilant about their blood sugar levels. Additionally, if you suffer from hypoglycemia, eat 5-6 small meals per day that are protein-based and decrease consumption of simple carbohydrates. Also, it is our recommendation that you contact your physician to make adjustments to your insulin levels if your blood sugar is consistently low after starting the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System.

Can I take glucophage (Metformin) while using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Yes. If you decide to take glucophage (Metformin) while using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System, please make sure to take the glucophage separately from the GlucX product. GlucX contains fiber, which may interfere with the absorption of glucophage if they are taken simultaneously. We recommend taking the GlucX 4 hours apart from the glucophage.

Glucophage acts as an anti-hyperglycemic; it reduces glucose thereby reducing insulin levels. It is prescribed for those with insulin resistance. Metformin can impact weight loss. However, the results are variable. There are also many negative side effects with the treatment of Metformin that can impact your health.

Our view on the pharmaceutical treatment of insulin resistance is that there is no single drug on the market that will change your condition. The only way to reverse the disorder is to reduce elevations in insulin and glucose.

The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System was created to increase insulin sensitivity. This can be partially achieved by diet and exercise changes. The addition of nutrients will help you become more sensitive to your insulin, to lower your blood glucose and reverse insulin resistance, a key underlying factor in your diabetes.

If you do decide to keep taking glucophage while using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System, we recommend that you test your blood sugar daily for the first few weeks on the System, as the Insulite nutrients and glucophage together may decrease your blood sugar beyond what you may expect. This is good news, however. If you find this is happening, speak to your doctor about withdrawing from the glucophage. 

My Doctor has prescribed an anti-depressant for me. Is it safe to take this medication with your product?

It is recommended that you contact your physician and/or pharmacist to discuss this matter. A full listing of the ingredients in the Insulite Diabetes Management System is located here.

You can print off a copy for your healthcare providers. 

Why does the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System recommend a regular exercise program to help increase insulin sensitivity?

Woman leaning against a wall after exercising.The main reason we recommend exercise as a critical part of this system is that it will reduce your insulin secretion, an underlying cause of insulin resistance, which, in turn, can worsen the symptoms of your diabetes. Exercise is a necessary component of addressing other symptoms of diabetes. It boosts your metabolism, burns calories and increases the number of insulin receptor sites on your cells' surface, allowing glucose to enter the cell and be converted to energy instead of fat. Keep in mind that there is no single step that will enable you to manage your diabetes more effectively. It takes a complete system to support these changes metabolically.

I have had a few minor changes in my digestion since starting the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System. Why is this happening?

We have had feedback from a small percentage of our customers that they experience gas, bloating, changes in the frequency of bowel movements and even a change in the color of stools. This is mainly due to the GlucX product which contains more fiber than one is usually accustomed to consuming each day. This increase can cause these symptoms, which are completely benign and will resolve over time. However, we recommend using a smaller number of GlucX capsules to begin with and then work up to the full dose. For example, use 1 cap twice a day for the first week and increase to 2 caps twice a day for the second week. Work up gradually and this will help reduce the side effects. If these symptoms persist, please contact our Consulting & Advisory Teams.

Since starting the Insulite supplements, I have had a few headaches. Why is this and what can I do about it?

We have had feedback from a small percentage of our customers that they have experienced headaches when starting to take the Insulite supplements.

There are several reasons that the headaches could be happening, all of which represent positive changes taking place in your system.

Headaches could be due to your body detoxifying which is a great thing. Or, it could be low blood sugar, due to your decrease in carbohydrates and from the supplements, some of which contain blood-sugar lowering properties. Another reason could be that you are eating carbohydrates without combining them with protein or fat.

If you are uncomfortable, we suggest that you decrease all supplements by half for the first two weeks and consume 3 liters of water over the course of the day. Slowing the dose will take care of this symptom and drinking plenty of water will help flush out toxins.

Headaches can also result from a change in bowel habits due to starting the program and making diet changes. Again, drinking plenty of water with a decrease in the Insulite supplements at the beginning of the program will help eliminate this problem. If your headaches continue despite both of these changes, please consult our Consulting & Advisory Teams.

What kind of pancreatic and adrenal tissue is used in the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

The pancreatic and adrenal tissues in the supplements are porcine (pig) derived and are from Australia. They are range-free, hormone-free and pesticide-free. The glandulars and the gelatin capsules are the only animal derived substances in our products.

Are there any ingredients in the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System that may prevent me from becoming pregnant?

Woman looking over a man's shoulder as he holds an infant.No. In fact, if you are having difficulty conceiving, lowering your insulin is a way to enhance your ability to conceive. We do recommend, however, that, if you become pregnant while using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System, you discontinue using the supplements during your pregnancy and then resume them after you finish breastfeeding. The reason is that while we know that the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is safe and non-toxic in general, these supplements have not been tested in any clinical trials specifically on pregnant women or infants.

Is it safe to continue trying to get pregnant while using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Yes. However, if you do get pregnant, we recommend that you discontinue taking the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System supplements during your pregnancy, and then resume the supplements after you are finished breastfeeding. The reason is that while we know that the Insulite Diabetes System is safe and non-toxic in general, these supplements have not been tested in any clinical trials specifically on pregnant women or infants.

Is the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System safe to take while pregnant?

We at Insulite Laboratories want to support healthy changes that you have made. However, if you conceive while on the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System of nutrients and lifestyle changes, we recommend that you discontinue the nutrients until after you have finished nursing. The reason is that, while we know that the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is safe and non-toxic in general, these supplements have not been tested in any clinical trials specifically on pregnant women or infants.

We strongly encourage you to keep working on the carbohydrate reductions and exercise plan as these recommendations are both safe for pregnant as well as nursing mothers. 

Is the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System safe to use while nursing?

Woman sitting on a bed holding a baby.We at Insulite Laboratories congratulate you on your pregnancy and birth of your child. We recommend that you discontinue the use of the nutrients in our System until you have stopped nursing. The reason is that, while we know that the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is safe and non-toxic in general, these supplements have not been tested in any clinical trials specifically on pregnant women or infants. We strongly encourage you to keep working on the carbohydrate reductions and exercise plan as these recommendations are both safe for pregnant as well as nursing mothers.

Can I still take my multivitamins while on the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Yes. You may take your multivitamins at the same time as taking the pills of the Insulite Diabetes System except GlucX. Because it is a soluble fiber, GlucX may interfere with the absorption of vitamins (and any other medications). To be safe, we recommend GlucX is taken at least an hour before meals. Your vitamins can be taken at meal time with SensitX, RejuvenX and OmegaX.

Here is a suggested schedule:

With breakfast:   SensitX – 2 caps and RejuvenX – 2 caps
 
Between breakfast and lunch:   GlucX – 3 caps
 
With Lunch:   SensitX – 2 caps, RejuvenX – 2 caps and OmegaX – 2 caps
 
With Dinner:   OmegaX – 2 caps
 
After dinner/before bed:   GlucX – 3 caps
 

Your vitamins can be taken at meal time with SensitX, RejuvenX and OmegaX.

Can my teenager take the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management products and safely follow the program?

Yes, the diet and exercise recommendations are safe for all people over the age of 12. However, it is recommended that teenagers take the Supplement Plan at half the adult dose since there have been no clinical studies conducted with teenagers using the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System nor any other nutrient formula. Adolescents should follow the same recommendations for blood sugar monitoring as adults and discuss with their prescribing physician any changes in blood sugar levels that may require adjustments in their insulin use.

Please contact our Consulting & Advisory Teams to discuss dosing for YOUR teenager.
 


About diabetes and insulin resistance

Why do diabetes and insulin resistance cause excessive food cravings?

Both diabetes and insulin resistance are the result of imbalances in your insulin and glucose. These imbalances can cause dramatic swings in your blood sugar level. The biological effect is that your brain continues to send signals saying it needs food. As a result, you continue to feel hungry, yet no amount of food is likely to satisfy your cravings for very long

Does eating a diet high in fat contribute to diabetes and insulin resistance?

Man cutting vegetables with a knife.No, naturally occurring fat does not cause the glucose and insulin "spiking" that occurs with the repeated consumption of carbohydrates. A diet high in fat may not, however, enhance your chances of weight loss and can pose other health risks. However, the consumption of trans-fats has been shown to increase insulin insensitivity which can lead to diabetes. Trans fats which are also called "hydrogenated fats" are found in crackers, some chips, cookies, bakery items, pastries and margarine and should be avoided completely.

Is insulin resistance the same as type 2 diabetes?

No. Insulin resistance can occur well before type 2 diabetes is diagnosed, perhaps for as long as decades before. When someone suffers from type 2 diabetes, their pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to meet the needs of the body's insulin resistant cells.


About Weight Loss

How soon will I lose weight on the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System?

Transforming your body's chemistry in a manner that will lead to permanent change takes time, commitment, persistence and patience. To heal the ravages of insulin resistance you must honestly commit to altering your lifestyle. Once you make this commitment, Insulite Laboratories is here to help.

Before you sign up for the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System, please remember that no single pill can reverse insulin resistance and weight gain or increase insulin sensitivity. The way to approach conditions is with a complete system that requires commitment and realistic expectations. Insulite Laboratories recommends that you lose no more than 1/2 – 1 lb. a week on the System so that you can experience long lasting weight loss without the heartbreaking "rebound effect."

Why do you recommend gradual weight loss?

Gradual weight reduction results in a more permanent change in the way your cells respond to insulin. Research shows that rapid weight loss evident in most fad diets is almost immediately followed by rapid weight gain. Why? Because the body has a memory. If you have been overweight for some time, your body recognizes that weight as its normal state. When you lose weight quickly, the body does not have time to habituate. It sees the rapid weight loss as abnormal and, once a diet is stopped, it makes an effort to get back as quickly as possible to the normal retaining of fat.

At Insulite Laboratories, we emphasize gradual weight loss so that the body can slowly adapt to a lighter weight. In fact, in an effort to eliminate the dreaded "rebound effect" of weight loss and gain we recommend in most instances that the System is used to lose no more than 1/2 – 1 lb. a week. Insulite Laboratories wants you to be healthy for life, not thin for one event in your life.

Two medical professionals monitor a man as he walks on a treadmill.While you can expect to see and feel changes sooner, we recommend that you commit to using the Insulite Diabetes System for at least six months. At this point, we ask that you contact us for a complimentary consultation with our Consulting & Advisory Teams. We would like to evaluate your progress with you and make recommendations for a course of action based on that evaluation. We cannot and will not make claims that this System will produce an overnight transformation. Rapid weight loss is unhealthy and non-permanent. We do guarantee that, if you follow this program for six months, you will experience weight loss, increased vitality and better health.

Is this just another high protein, low carbohydrate diet?

No, this is a system of elements that when followed carefully will completely eliminate the need for "diets". This is not an Atkins or Protein Power look-a-like plan. While protein is emphasized on this program, carbohydrates are not excluded. The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System includes not only a Nutrition Plan but also Supplement and Exercise Plans, as well as a Support Network. Our Nutrition Plan recommends a healthier balance of protein and healthier carbohydrates (e.g. vegetables, fruits) than that which the majority of us currently consume. The Nutrition Plan is carefully designed to keep your blood sugar stable so that you are hungry only at mealtimes, you are satisfied easily and your energy stays constant throughout the day.

Additionally, the specialized supplement program "instructs" or "reminds" your insulin and glucose how to work together again for the prevention of weight gain.

Another reason that you are likely to succeed with the Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is the emphasis we place on support. Studies show that support is vital to any lifestyle transition. The goal of the Insulite Support Network is to keep you motivated through weekly messages with advice on nutrition, healthy recipes, exercise and research on insulin resistance and its related conditions such as Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Insulite participants also receive a monthly newsletter and can obtain feedback on their progress at any time by contacting us via email or by calling 1 888 9 TO HEAL.
 

Can I use Slim Fast or a Power Bar for lunch and still use this product?

We are advocates of getting your nutrients from food rather than snack bars and processed food. However, if you feel that you must eat protein bars, we recommend eating a high-protein bar like Balance Bar that is designed to have a ratio of at least 30% protein to 40% carbohydrates. High protein foods like nuts, cottage cheese and lean meats are also good suggestions when you are on the go.

If I am following the Nutrition and Exercise Plans and taking all the supplements and am NOT losing weight, could it be my level of stress?

Yes. Stress increases the circulating levels of cortisol and adrenalin. Both these hormones cause the release of glucose from your liver. Therefore, stress increases blood levels of glucose and consequently causes an increase in insulin secretion from your pancreas, which further contributes to your insulin resistance. Cortisol also causes an increase in fat storage around your abdomen and thighs.

If I have already done Atkins and "failed" why would I succeed with this program?

Two men jogging along side a road.The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System recommends a more realistic and healthy nutrition program and emphasizes a reasonable approach to exercise. Once the user masters both of these concepts, the likelihood of gaining weight in the future is minimal. The nutrients in our Supplement Plan improve the way your body uses insulin and reduces the cardiovascular effects of having too much insulin. The Atkins diet merely suggests severe carb restriction without emphasizing the importance of healthy nutrients to reverse the condition of insulin resistance. The Insulite Diabetes Advanced System's goal is to increase the number of insulin receptor sites on the cell surface. Because of the therapeutic dose of nutrients delivered in the System, there is reversal of insulin resistance, resulting in more permanent success with weight loss and increased insulin sensitivity.

We are advocates of healthy eating, not just avoiding one major food group for fast weight loss. We emphasize increasing green vegetables and "good fats" in your diet because both promote weight loss. Additionally, the specialized Supplement Plan "instructs" or "reminds" your insulin and glucose how to work together again for the prevention of weight gain.

Another reason that you are likely to succeed with the Insulite Diabetes Management System is the emphasis we place on support. Studies show that support is vital to any lifestyle transition. A key objective of the System is to keep you motivated through weekly messages with advice on nutrition, healthy recipes, exercise and research on insulin resistance, diabetes, metabolic syndrome (syndrome x) and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). All Insulite System participants also receive a monthly newsletter and can obtain feedback on their progress at any time by contacting us via email or by calling 1 888 9 TO HEAL.

"I have been using the Insulite System for about 6 months. I have noticed that my eating habits seem to have transitioned very naturally.... no starvation or denial, I don't crave junk food or sweets anymore!! I have been able to lose about 20 pounds, slowly, safely, and permanently. This is a "for life" program and everyone that has a weight problem should try it!!"

"Although I have never met any of your staff I feel that I get more positive response from you all than my doctors for the last five years.

I'm just so grateful for your organization. You have given me so much hope and something to look forward to. I feel as if I'm dealing with professionals who care about what happens to their patient."

"I cannot believe the difference the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my appetite is somewhat diminished."

"I have been using the Insulite System for about 6 months. I have noticed that my eating habits seem to have transitioned very naturally.... no starvation or denial, I don't crave junk food or sweets anymore!! I have been able to lose about 20 pounds, slowly, safely, and permanently. This is a "for life" program..."

"I have been on the Insulite System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has changed my life.

I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program. Your product is fantastic. I have cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing weight again after being "stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4 lbs since starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months supply. Thank you!"
