Insulin resistance inevitably leads to the so-called lifestyle diseases. Do nothing to correct it for long enough and eventually you’ll develop one or more of the very debilitating diseases, for sure.
Like many medical doctors, Dr Georgia Ede developed a deep understanding of integrative, restorative medicine after some personal health challenges. It’s a very interesting journey, which she describes at the About tab of her website.
Dr Ede’s website is filled with articles she has written in a fluid style that’s a pleasure to read. The website tagline aptly describes her approach: ‘nutrition science meets common sense‘.
A fine example of her extensive knowledge and ability to convey it in a way everyone can understand, is her post ‘How to Diagnose, Prevent, and Treat Insulin Resistance‘.
As Dr Ede wrote:
‘It is excess glucose that raises blood sugar and insulin levels, turns off fat burning, shifts fat and cholesterol production into overdrive, feeds cancer cells, and sets the stage for inflammation throughout the body. People with insulin resistance are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes in the future, so insulin resistance is often referred to as “pre-diabetes”.‘
If you’re interested in enjoying a life free of disease and prescription medicines, Dr Ede’s website post is a great place to start.
In the spirit of helping others, she has generously supplied the code for a superb infographic, with the following words, quote:
‘The infographic below includes simple steps you can take to remove hidden sources of sugar in your diet before it does any more damage to your health, along with additional strategies to control your blood sugar and insulin levels. I hope you find it useful, and if you do, please pass it along to others.‘
