Understanding Insulin Resistance
Written by Dr. Roni Deluz, RN, ND   
In the normal person, your food is absorbed into the bloodstream in the form of sugars. The food is broken down by the digestive system in order to do this and the glucose and fat that results, as well as other basic substances, are then spread throughout the body. The increase in glucose in your blood then sends a signal to the pancreas to increase the amount of insulin produced by the organ. Insulin then attaches to the blood cells and removes the glucose so that the body can use the glucose for energy.
