Insulin resistance creates increased levels of insulin and glucose in the blood stream, which is a major underlying cause of diabetes.

Combating this condition is crucial for heart disease prevention because diabetes can damage the cardiovascular system, specifically the lining of the arteries, as well as creating a greater risk of blood clot formation. The kidneys' ability to remove salt is also affected. All of these factors raise the likelihood of developing Cardiovascular Disease leading to a heart attack or stroke.

Research by Louisiana State University published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in December 2003 found that those suffering from Metabolic Syndrome were at significantly greater risk of dying from a heart attack than those without the condition. The study, conducted over a 15-year period, concluded that men with Metabolic Syndrome were from 2.9 to 4.2 times more likely to die of a heart attack.

This breakthrough in understanding the body's biochemistry remains relatively unknown among the general public, even though insulin resistance has reached epidemic proportions. Your doctor may not have explained the crucial link between insulin resistance, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. You need to understand this link in order to better manage your diabetes and reduce the risk of the onset of other serious conditions.

The Insulite Diabetes Advanced Management System is a scientific breakthrough that could improve your health by reversing the symptoms of insulin resistance through increasing the insulin sensitivity of the walls of your cells. Greater sensitivity can result in a huge improvement in the efficient processing of glucose and insulin, which may reduce the amount of insulin you require to manage your diabetes.

By reversing insulin resistance, your glucose and insulin levels could become better balanced, enabling weight loss to be achieved via a nutritious diet and regular exercise.

By lowering insulin intake and dependency through more effective management of your diabetes, you are likely to experience better long-term health and a greater sense of well being. You may also reduce your risk as a Diabetic of developing such serious, insulin imbalance-linked complications such as the need for amputation, failing eyesight and kidney disease.

Insulin resistance has many factors that contribute to its presence in the body. In essence, our environment and lifestyles have evolved too rapidly for our bodies to keep pace. We are still genetically "wired" to thrive on the entrenched habits of our ancestors, who consumed different, nutrient-rich foods, a diet low in carbohydrates and sustained greater levels of movement and exercise. Some people may also have a genetic predisposition to insulin resistance, while others develop the condition through high stress and unhealthy lifestyles.

Over time, the above factors have damaged the complex ability of the body's cells to properly utilize insulin to convert glucose to energy. This process can create insulin resistance.

The medical profession is still studying and evaluating the effect of inflammation on a wide variety of inter-connected disorders like diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and PCOS. To learn more, click on Inflammation, Insulin Resistance and Diabetes.

 

 

 

"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!!"

"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!"
