Stress and Pre-diabetesPre-Diabetes can be caused by Insulin Resistance-related obesity which, in turn, may be brought on by stress. Various forms of stress release the steroid cortisol and this process may result in weight gain.

Insulin sensitivity decreases after certain stressful experiences, such as surgery and it is also associated with work-related mental and emotional stress. While the underlying cause of Pre-Diabetes can be Insulin Resistance, the disorder is also influenced by such factors as overeating, poor lifestyle choices and sedentary habits.

People who suffer from stress often feel exhausted much if not most of the time and therefore are not motivated to exercise regularly, which can lead to an increase in weight.

As glucose levels in the body rise, they stimulate increased insulin production, which has a number of negative effects: it raises noradrenalin levels which, in turn, can induce Insulin Resistance; it promotes the synthesis of atherogenic lipids (cholesterol); it is associated with kidney dysfunction and hypertension; it favors atherosclerotic plaque formation; and it stores fat.

In people who are "stress-eaters", particularly women, the more they eat high-fat, high-sugar, high-carbohydrate "comfort" foods in response to stress, the more fat they store and the more insulin they secrete. This, in turn, elevates glucose levels, causing even more fat to be stored, thus starting a vicious cycle that also contributes to the development of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), the hormonal imbalance which is a major cause of female infertility, as well as skin conditions and excess facial and body hair.

Interestingly, noradrenalin (the hormone that increases in response to excess levels of insulin in the body) is a stress-response chemical, released under conditions of emotional upset. Further, glucocorticoids (such as cortisol) are also stress-response chemicals in some women and these hormones are also responsible for increased storing of abdominal fat and raising blood glucose levels. One study demonstrated that people with elevated levels of serum cortisol (caused by chronic stress) developed abdominal obesity, Insulin Resistance and lipid abnormalities.

Pre-Diabetes, Stress and Metabolic Syndrome

Insulin Resistance and StressStress-related weight gain can also be a precursor to Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X). Like Pre-Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome can be caused by obesity and Insulin Resistance.

Symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome include high LDL "bad" cholesterol, low HDL "good" cholesterol and an increase in triglyceride levels, which substantially increase the chances of developing Cardiovascular Disease. If neglected, this latter condition may lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Pre-Diabetes, Stress and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Stress and Insulin ResistanceObesity and Insulin Resistance brought on by stress often underlie Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which increases the risk of developing Pre-Diabetes. Women suffering from Pre-Diabetes are also at substantially greater risk of suffering from PCOS.

Excess weight gain needs to be reduced by reversing Insulin Resistance, which is common to both Pre-Diabetes and PCOS.

Clearly, management of stress factors is a critical component to addressing the symptoms of Pre-Diabetes, as well as Metabolic Syndrome and PCOS. But just as clearly, no single approach will affect all the components of this disorder.

A complete system, including nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs and minerals that are disease specific), a realistic exercise program, nutritional guidance and a support network that will help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices, is required.

"I have been on the Insulite Pre-Diabetes System for one year. Within that year I have lost 76 pounds and my glucose level has improved. I followed the plan provided and have also become physically fit. I am able to exercise 2+ hours a day and hike difficult treks at the parks without fatigue. I feel better and healthier than I have in a very long time. I wish to tell others what a wonderful system this is. I have ordered another year of the Pre-Diabetes System and expect that the improvements will keep coming."

"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."

"I have been on the Insulite Pre-Diabetes System for 6 months now. I have lost 52.5 lbs and am walking 5 miles a day, 6 days a week. I feel great! I still have a hard time believing that this has worked so well and so easily. I have tried to lose weight for years and had even come to the point of gaining weight while fasting.

When I read about Insulin Resistance it described me perfectly. The Insulite System made complete sense. I have followed the entire plan and the results are astounding. God has used the Insulite System to change my life. Your support has been tremendous! Thank you for being there for me."

"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!"

"...approximately 90% of overweight Hispanic children with a family history for type 2 diabetes have at least one feature of the metabolic syndrome and 30% possess the metabolic syndrome.

Our results support the view that improving insulin resistance may be crucial in the prevention of both type 2 diabetes and premature cardiovascular disease in this at-risk subpopulation of Hispanic youth."
