Insulin Resistance When a patient presents for my care, insulin resistance is often one of the first things to be addressed, as its negative health consequences are far reaching. Insulin resistance is when one’s cells become “resistant” to the effects of “insulin”. One of insulin’s primary roles is to get glucose (sugar) into the cells. If one is insulin resistant, there is impaired glucose transport into the cells. This results in a number of negative health effects, as all of our tissues fundamentally need glucose in order to function optimally. There are varying degrees of insulin resistance. What degree of insulin resistance one has can be quantified by specific markers on a functional blood chemistry analysis. The spectrum insulin resistance is diagramed below. While diabetic states are recognized in conventional medicine, metabolic syndrome (pre diabetes) and pre pre diabetic (early insulin resistance) states are often overlooked. One can have (and almost always does) significant symptoms and health consequences associated with pre pre diabetic and metabolic syndrome states even though they are not diabetic. Spectrum of Insulin Resistance Pre pre diabetes (early insulin resistance) Pre diabetes (metabolic syndrome) Diabetes The negative consequences of insulin resistance include promotion of stress responses and elevated cortisol, inflammation, impaired barrier health, promotion of leaky gut, compromised liver detoxification, compromised good bacteria in the gut, hormone imbalances, infertility, ovarian cysts, high blood pressure (sodium retention, magnesium depletion), high cholesterol (increased bad cholesterol, decreased good cholesterol), increased blood clotting, increased uric acid (promoting gout), increased oxidative stress (glycation), decreased antioxidant (glutathione) production, decreased energy production, nerve compromise (hands/feet/eyes), kidney compromise, and immune imbalances (decreased infection and cancer fighting, increased allergies and sensitivities). The negative consequences of insulin resistance are far reaching, but the good news is that insulin resistance can oftentimes be greatly improved. Appropriate diet, supplementation, and exercise strategies can have tremendous beneficial impacts on insulin resistance states. In fact, a report from the New England Journal of Medicine in 2001 stated that insulin resistance is curable with diet and exercise. In order to understand how to improve insulin resistance one must understand the cause. Let’s examine the causes and vicious cycles promoted by insulin resistance. There are three primary causes, and three vicious cycles promoting insulin resistance. The first cause of insulin resistance is carbohydrate overload. This simply means, one is consuming more carbohydrates (breads, pasta, rice, starches, sugar) than the body can process. When you exceed your unique carbohydrate tolerance insulin resistance is promoted...

Some of the danger components for building CKD include hypertension, diabetes, gout, prolonged shock, household historical past, specified ethnic teams and some drugs. The greatest way to deal with CKD is with early detection to avert renal failure.

A diet regime very low in purines is a diet regime that will make very low amounts of uric acid. This form of diet regime is generally referred to as the uric acid diet. Many gout victims, myself included, know that an excess develop up of uric acid in the human body is what leads to a gout attack.
