Pre diabetes: Insulin resistance is the precursor to type 2 diabetes. It is estimated that people who eventually develop diabetes have had Insulin resistance for at least 10-15 yrs beforehand. Obesity, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, and high fasting glucose are indicators of Insulin resistance (if you have at least 3 out of 5). Weight loss and exercise are essential for treating.
