  • Type 2 diabetes usually develops gradually over several years, beginning when muscle and other cells stop responding to insulin. This condition, known as insulin resistance, causes blood sugar and insulin levels to stay high long after eating. Over time, the heavy demands made on the insulin-making cells wears them out, and insulin production eventually stops.

  • Insulin Resistance If someone has insulin resistance, their body does not respond properly to the hormone insulin. The normal function of the hormone insulin is to transfer glucose from the blood into the liver and muscle cells, to be used as energy, and managing our blood glucose levels.

  • Summary: Excess calories make you fat, usually carbs are wrapped up with fats in processed foods. When people eat better quality foods, they will reduce energy load, and therefore facilitate fat loss, which assist in controlling insulin, providing an opportunity for cells to re-sensitise to insulin.
