The ups and downs of insulin resistance 

Quick summary of the science  :

When you’re insulin resistant i.e. you have metabolic syndrome, pretty much every chemical in the body is NOT QUITE RIGHT.  Some are up.  Some are down.  Few are actually at physiologically NORMAL levels. 

Traditionally the focus is on the big guns.

Insulin. Sugar. And cholesterol.

In this series, we’ll take a look at some of the other players.


the system of insulin resistance



Who they are, what they’re up to and how they’re part of the state of insulin resistance.


Watch this video to learn more about insulin resistance being A SYSTEM.

And WHY it matters.

Now meet some of the players....

Discover what they do and how you can "manage" them.....




We look at aldosterone, a hormone associated with high blood pressure,  in this episode of the UPS & DOWNS of insulin resistance
We look at irisin, a hormone associated with freaked out muscles,  in this episode of the UPS & DOWNS of insulin resistance
We look at mannose, a kissing cousin of glucose, who loves to decorate, in this episode of the UPS & DOWNS of insulin resistance
We look at how agile your baroreceptors are, or should I say, aren’t and why this matters, in this episode of the UPS & DOWNS of insulin resistance
We look at hepcidin, the body's iron king pin. Thanks to his antics, if you're insulin resistant, you're short of iron, while wallowing in it.
We look at endotoxin, gram negative bacteria’s dirty laundry.  It shouldn’t be a problem, but because the gut becomes “leaky” in the insulin resistant, it is.
We look at ferritin, the molecule responsible for keeping iron tucked away safely  INSIDE CELLS.  In the insulin resistant, ferritin fails……unleashing the reactive genius on iron, ON ALL AND SUNDRY, with horrible consequences.
Glycine, is the only amino acid, that’s down in someone with insulin resistance, since glycine is a big hitter, when it comes to body chemistry, this matters
If you’re insulin resistant, the odds that you are short of thiamine are quite high.  It’s unlikely to be a dietary supply problem, but rather a personal supply issue
Lung function, is diminished, when you’re insulin resistant. Don’t panic, it’s not enough for you to notice, but enough for your cell’s to notice…….and this matters.
Circulating Vitamin D levels are lower than ideal, when you’re insulin resistant – but you might have a lot more vitamin D than you think, it’s stored in fat cells.
