    There are things you can do to reduce insulin resistance. These include exercise and losing body fat. Keeping your blood sugar under control can also help to decrease insulin resistance.

    I went on a strict diet targeting Insulin Resistance in December 2004. My symptoms at the time included:
    • very High Blood Pressure, especially at night
    • Breathing Problems after consuming Carbs at night
    • Breathing Problems after consuming too many Carbs during the day
    • Moderately high blood sugar readings
    • Fatigue
    • Mental Confusion
    • Unstable Heart-Beat
    • etc

    The worst of the symptoms, in my case, were the breathing problems.

    After several months on the strict diet, I was able to consume more carbs without effecting my health. Now....... five years later, I've still got to watch the carbs, and I make sure that I eat a balanced diet of 50% carbs, 20% Proteins and 30% fats. But, I am able to eat larger portions and significantly more carbs than in 2004, and still keep my blood sugar at healthy levels; and without suffering from any nasty symptoms.

    I don't think that I will ever NOT be Insulin Resistant, but at least, approaching age 70, I can eat a more normal diet without suffering.

    Regards..... best of health!
