Insulin Resistance

Clinical Overview

Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body does not use insulin efficiently. Therefore (in someone who produces insulin), the pancreas begins to produce a great deal more insulin to process the same amount of glucose eventually leading to hyperinsulinemia (excess levels of insulin present in the blood).

Insulin resistance is often a primary precursor or symptom of type 2 diabetes. However, insulin resistance can also occur in people with type 1 diabetes due to the numerous causes and risk factors.
