Like most of life's Treasures, when it's new, it's absolutely stunning; fail to keep up with basic maintenance, and ruin sure to follow. Our bodies are no different!
Remember the study from the last post? It recruited 147 lean and overweight middle-aged volunteers without diabetes or diagnosed cardiovascular disease. They measured the volunteers' insulin sensitivity, divided them into three equal-sized groups based on their degree of insulin resistance, and waited six years to watch who developed a variety of diseases over that period +Group I: had the lowest level of insulin resistance +Group II: had an intermediate level
+Group III: had the highest level. - - The RESULTS: NONE of the people in the least insulin resistant group developed a disease or died. In contrast, 36% of the people in the most insulin-resistant group developed a disease and/or DIED, from a variety of causes including hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
People in the middle group, group II, had an intermediate rate of disease. -
Group I “also had a variety of other healthy signs, including less body fatness, higher physical activity, lower blood pressure, lower levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and the higher levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol.
It doesn’t mean that Insulin Resistance was 100% the sole cause for the other metabolic disturbances and/or diseases, but as Shah suggest, we can reasonably conclude it played at least somewhat of a causal role, and it's still a metabolic characteristic we should care quite a bit about. SWIPE RIGHT, that is the OneTouch meter I referenced in the last post. You do NOT have to be morbidly obese to be affected. Even @TameraMowryTwo shared she was once prediabetic!
