I read this article and just had to report the findings of the major study they refer to http://diabetes.niddk.nih.gov/dm/pubs/insulinresistance/#6.
'lifestyle changes reduced the risk of diabetes by 58 percent'The main recommendation is to be active and eat well.
I just wanted to make the point that insulin resistance can be reversed. They also found that many people with pre-diabtes, symptoms that often lead to diabetes, returned to normal.
Further explanations about why this is the case can be found in the other articles on the GLUT 4 transport chain elsewhere on this blog.
So anyone out there who's worried about or has been told they have or are likely to get diabetes. There are options for you and they don't all involve medicine. Simple approaches like looking at the balance in your life and including activity and adjusting your foods can make a big difference
