Insulin resistance is one of the most common health conditions I detect in my patients and is a known key driver of cancer progression, heart disease, dementia, immune suppression, systemic inflammation and is the precursor for type 2 diabetes.
To find out if you have insulin resistance, check your hemoglobin A1C, fasting glucose, fasting insulin and get a glucose-insulin response test.
One of the most effective ways to minimize the impact of insulin resistance is by limiting your daily “net carbohydrate” dietary intake to less than 50 grams per day.
