In this video, I want to cover the symptoms of insulin resistance. I realized I have many videos where I talk about insulin resistance, but I don’t have any videos where I go through the symptoms of insulin resistance. My guess is that at least 60-75% of the population has some form of insulin resistance. Even people that are prediabetic and diabetic also have insulin resistance.
28 insulin resistance symptoms:
1. Frequent urination at night
2. Frequent hunger (need for snacks between meals and at night)
3. Needing to nap after eating (especially after lunch)
4. Not satisfied after eating
5. Craving carbs
6. Low endurance/fatigue
7. Belly fat
8. High cholesterol, high triglycerides, low HDL and high LDL
9. High blood pressure
10. Fatty liver
12. Dark folds (on the back of the neck, armpits, or groin)
14. Skin tags
15. High blood glucose and high insulin
16. Inflammation and pain
17. Sleep apnea
18. Slow metabolism
19. Memory problems
21. Loss of muscle mass
22. Can’t absorb nutrients
23. Increase in the sympathetic nervous system
25. Low testosterone
27. Fatty liver
28. Poor focus or brain fog

Type 2 Diabetes – It Is Time For You to Pay Attention to Nutrition
If you are like many people, you have neglected your well-being for longer than you would like to admit. Usually, it is only when one realizes they have not been fair to their health they decide to change. Is it your moment?

Type 2 Diabetes – High Blood Sugar and Certain Bacteria Increase the Risk of Benign Colon Tumors
A species of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori is linked to a high danger of developing stomach ulcers and benign tumors of the colon.

Scientists in Taiwan found having both risk factors puts people at an even higher risk of developing the tumors than either factor alone. The increased risk seen in both health problems at one time is greater than a mere addition to both risks. Researchers term this a synergistic effect.
