More on Insulin Resistance and Diabetes


This is excerpted from the latest article in Life Extension Magazine August 2008 by Dr William Davis

Most people with heart disease and diabetes are insulin-resistant, which is a root cause of the metabolic syndrome that leads to the same destination—raised blood sugar, increased triglycerides, reduced HDL, heightened inflammation, and an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.

Diabetes and heart disease are intimately connected. Diabetics without heart disease have the same risk for heart attack as non-diabetics with established heart disease.
The first step in guarding against metabolic syndrome is to gauge the risk of insulin resistance through simple blood tests such as triglycerides, insulin, HDL, CRP, and DHEA.

Insulin resistance and inflammation can usually be reduced effectively without the need for prescription drugs by using the right
nutritional supplement and lifestyle strategies.

Nutritional supplements that are effective for reducing insulin resistance include fish oil, chromium, white bean extract, DHEA, vitamin D, lipoic acid, magnesium, cinnamon, beta glucans, resveratrol, and polyphenols found in cocoa, green tea, and apples.
