PRE-DIABETES AND WEIGHT GAIN


Pre-diabetes and weight gainObesity is a root cause of Insulin Resistance, which, in turn, is a key factor in the development of reversible Pre-Diabetes. If neglected, this latter condition severely increases the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, which, in the vast majority of cases, can only be managed for the rest of the Diabetic's life and may require daily injections of insulin.

Reversing Insulin Resistance can be a crucial factor in the prevention of Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes and its attendant risk of Cardiovascular Disease.

Insulin is the hormone responsible for allowing glucose, or blood sugar, to be absorbed by the cells of the body, where it is converted to energy. If you are Insulin Resistant, your cells react sluggishly to insulin.

When you eat a meal, whether it's steak, fish or vegetables, the body breaks it down into a usable energy form, namely glucose.

In a simplified explanation, the food you consume becomes sugar that will be transported to the tissues, muscles and organs of the body via the blood stream to be converted into energy. Following a meal, particularly one that is high in carbohydrates, you will have elevated levels of glucose in the blood stream, which signal the pancreas to release even more insulin until the excess glucose is absorbed by the cells.

When you are Insulin Resistant, excessive amounts of free-floating unconverted glucose remain in the blood stream until they are sent to the liver and converted to excess body fat. In addition, hyperinsulinemia (elevated insulin in the blood) encourages your liver to produce even more triglycerides which are directly related to a greater risk of heart disease.

Insulin Resistance and Serious Health Conditions

Reverse Insulin ResistanceInsulin Resistance promotes fat storage because glucose cannot properly enter the cells to be used as energy. Elevated levels of insulin in the blood stream lead to a series of biochemical reactions with wide-ranging consequences. As well as Pre-Diabetes, it can lead to a variety of serious health conditions, such as the cluster of increased risks for cardiovascular disorders called Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), a leading cause of female infertility as well as menstrual irregularity, skin conditions and excess facial and body hair.

The interactions of Insulin Resistance, obesity and Pre-Diabetes are complex and still under medical review. Many scientists believe that this is a case of "which came first: the chicken or the egg." Insulin Resistance contributes to obesity and is an underlying cause of Pre-Diabetes, while obesity worsens Insulin Resistance, which then accelerates the development of Pre-Diabetes, which, if left unchecked, can lead to Type 2 Diabetes. It is likely that each disorder exacerbates the other in a vicious cycle.

Another factor in Pre-Diabetes may be the role of inflammation, which is part of the body's immune system. Inflammation triggers a defense response to harmful stimuli or injury by sending specialized blood cells to damaged areas where they attack "invaders" like the renegade molecules called "free radicals" and clean up dead and dying cells.

In the case of inflammation and Pre-Diabetes, the "invader" is thought to be excess levels of insulin, which can be caused by the imbalance of blood glucose and insulin called Insulin Resistance. To learn more, click on Inflammation, Insulin Resistance and Pre-Diabetes.

Helping Patients, PatientPlus

Because there is no single solution that addresses all the symptoms of Insulin Resistance or Pre-Diabetes, you must rely on a multi-faceted approach to reversing these conditions. A complete system is required to address the issues presented by these syndromes - one that includes nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs and minerals that are disease specific), a realistic exercise program combined with nutritional guidance and support that will motivate you to make healthy lifestyle choices.

The Insulite Pre-Diabetes System is scientifically designed to reverse Insulin Resistance and obesity-linked Pre-Diabetes. It includes a formulation called Pre-InsulX, which contains magnesium that decreases glucose and insulin levels in the blood stream, a key factor in reducing weight gain.

"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."
