The danger of insulin resistance
A major health crisis is emerging, and it could well be affecting how you feel right now. It’s out-of-control blood glucose, and you may have it without even knowing. One in four people now have some impairment in glucose tolerance and insulin secretion. (If you’re overweight and over 45, the chances that you have it are nearly one in two.) Left unchecked, the end result is metabolic syndrome, which is a precursor to heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
The good news is that insulin resistance is reversible and eating the right foods may cure it. Try these four healthy GI recipes to keep your blood glucose levels under control.
