Some Insight Into Insulin

Lori Boxer
Weight★No★More℠ Diet Center


The relationship of obesity to insulin resistance (and type 2 diabetes) is long-recognized. I’ve read, over time in countless published research papers, that as high as 85% of patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes are overweight and obese.
The risk for insulin resistance (and diabetes) rises as body fat content increases from the very lean to the very obese). Additionally, it is important to know that all sites of body fat are not equal in this regard: central fat deposits (intra-abdominal) are much more strongly linked to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes than are peripheral (subcutaneous) fat deposits.
If you’re overweight or obese, please understand: Long before diabetes (and even pre-diabetes) is recognized, insulin resistance is already creeping up.
I meet many people, newly diagnosed with insulin resistance (especially women who have PCOS). When I do, I provide them with this reference sheet.
