A new report and video from Health News Wires titled Top 5 Ways To Prevent Insulin Resistance describes the the most effective ways to prevent insulin resistance and lower the risk of diabetes.
Insulin is a vital hormone created by the pancreas and required for transporting glucose from the blood to the muscle, where it is used as energy. Insulin Resistance is a condition that prevents the regular amount of insulin from moving blood sugar to the cells; the cells become resistant to accepting the insulin.
Lifestyle choices are the leading cause of Insulin Resistance, these choices include being overweight, eating a poor diet and not exercising. Perhaps the most significant risk factor is the accumulation of excess fat around the abdominal area.
There may not be any physical indicators that insulin resistance is occurring; however, the condition affects several important functions within the body. These functions include increasing the amount of calories stored as fat, increasing the amount of cholesterol produced in the body, and high blood pressure. Over time, and left untreated, insulin resistance can slowly develop into type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
The body’s insulin resistance responds best after losing weight and increasing physical activity. Specific recommendations include decreasing the amount of carbohydrates consumed, increasing fruits and vegetables, and exercising on a daily basis.
According to Michael Healey of Health News Wires, “Insulin resistance is a serious health concern for over 25% of adult population in the United States. The suggestions and tips provided by Health News Wires will help reverse the effects of insulin resistance.”
