Insulin Resistance Question

Postby rees54 » Wed Dec 12, 2007 3:35 pm

Hi all,

Quick question, let's say that I do manage to lose weight, exercise lots and lower my insulin resistance. If I was to stop all my efforts would my insulin resistance return or would my body have developed a permanently better state?

Obviously I am not planning on doing this but just wondered if any one new if there is such a thing as even a slight "cure" for insulin resistance?

Answers on a postcard :wink:

I honestly have no idea, but would presume that if losing weight helped then maintaining that weight would help too - it would only become a problem again if you gained weight back, but as I said this is only a guess so don't take it as a proper answer.

I agree with MRs B.

From what I gather, theres not actually a cure. Weight loss simply helps with the symptoms, but weight gain will bring it back.

After losing 3 stone, I was feeling great, but after a couple of days over xmas, I feel as bad as ever, headaches, tired etc.
