What is Insulin Resistance?
Insulin resistance is when cells in your muscles, fat, and liver don't respond well to insulin and can't use glucose from your blood for energy. To make up for it, your pancreas makes more insulin. Over time, your blood sugar levels go up.
Diagnose and test for insulin resistance.
Check with your doctor and book a blood test.
