Now in case you didn’t know, lack of insulin leads to the dysfunctional metabolism of sugar into cells of the body leading to type 2 diabetes. However, insulin resistance also leads to the condition of diabetes where the cells in your body stop responding to insulin which helps cells absorb sugar or glucose for energy or storage as fat. It is this condition that besides causing type 2 diabetes also leads to prediabetes and gestational diabetes.

According to Doctor Mark Hyman who writes in his own blog Insulin resistance isn’t a condition that occurs in a day. It builds up gradually. This happens because of worldwide diets of people depending more on a carb rich diet that includes potatoes, pastas, white rice, white bread, sugars, and liquid calories from sugary drinks. This places more pressure on your insulin to work overtime where your body’s demand for insulin increases to keep sugar in check. Ultimately, your cells start becoming resistant to insulin effect on them leading to insulin resistance.
