What is Insulin Resistance ?

Cell Resistance: Cells become less responsive to insulin's signal to take up glucose.

High Blood Sugar: Despite sufficient insulin, blood sugar levels remain elevated.

Pancreas Overcompensation: Pancreas produces more insulin to compensate for resistance.

Beta Cell Strain: Over time, the pancreas may struggle to keep up, leading to beta cell strain.

Link to Type 2 Diabetes: Insulin resistance is a precursor to type 2 diabetes.

Risk Factors: Obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and genetics contribute to insulin resistance.

Lifestyle Management: Exercise, healthy diet, and weight control help manage and prevent insulin resistance.
