Insulin Resistance - Do you have it?

Hump Day Health Hack with @amysfitnessandnutrition


Insulin resistance is one of the biggest and fasting growing health concerns in the modern world.


IS INSULIN GOOD OR BAD?


Insulin is essential to keep us alive. When there is a surplus of glucose (sugar) in the blood insulin signals our cells to remove glucose. Where does it go? Insulin cleverly removes the sugar from our blood and stores it as fat for later on. For this reason, it is also known as the fat-storage hormone. Doesn’t sound so good now does it?



THE PROBLEM WITH INSULIN RESISTANCE


When we become resistant to insulin, our cells stop responding to insulin and our blood sugar levels remain high. This can lead to a number of health issues including (most notably) Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease, PCOS, weight struggles, and high blood pressure. 50% of people with insulin resistance will likely develop Type 2 Diabetes without a lifestyle change.


THE SYMPTONS OF INSULIN RESISTANCE


- Abdominal Fat

- Sugar Cravings

- Extreme Thirst

- Hormonal Imbalances

- Dark Skin Patches or Tags

- Hunger Straight Away After A Meal

- High Blood Sugar Levels At The Doctor
