Over The Counter Treatment For Insulin Resistance Syndrome
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.

However, without weight loss, Type 2 Diabetes generally results, often causing severe damage to arteries and ...Read more

I've had type 1 diabetes for over 30 years. Over the long-haul, which is worse: the occasional high sugar (over 200) or the occasional low (under 60)?
