When it comes to insulin resistance, what exactly is it?
When we eat food, our body releases glucose and we use it for energy. Insulin, produced by the pancreas, is the hormone that helps in this conversion. Glucose gets stored in the muscles, fat cells, and liver. This enables your body to use the energy in the future as well.
Insulin resistance occurs when your cells do not respond well to this hormone. Your body is unable to efficiently convert the glucose from the blood into energy.
