Insulin Resistance Syndrome (Overview)

Insulin resistance is a state in which a given concentration of insulin produces a less-than-expected lowering of blood sugar. This results from obesity and often causes higher blood sugar levels. The early stage of Insulin resistance, known as impaired fasting glucose (IFG) or prediabetes, is potentially reversible with significant weight loss (at least 7 percent). However, without weight loss, Type 2 Diabetes generally results, often causing severe damage to arteries and organs and reduced longevity.
