The Dangers of Insulin Resistance: Diabetes, Infertility, and Cancer

Insulin Resistance: Causes and Consequences


Insulin resistance is a condition characterized by the inability of glucose to reach cells, resulting in increased glucose levels in the blood.

Effects of High Insulin Levels

Dr. Alexander Myasnikov notes that high levels of insulin in the blood lead to serious diseases, including:

1. Diabetes

Metabolic syndrome is obesity that is accompanied by high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high glucose levels. As a result, a person suffers from coronary atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, and angina pectoris.

2. Infertility

All women suffering from insulin insensitivity experience irregular menstruation and impaired reproductive function.

3. Liver Damage

Insulin insensitivity also affects the liver, leading to potential damage.

4. Increased Risk of Cancer

Most types of cancer, such as endometrial cancer, uterine cancer, and others, are directly related to insulin insensitivity.

Factors that Cause Insulin Insensitivity

Factors that contribute to insulin insensitivity include:

  • Excess weight
  • Malnutrition
  • Stress
  • Some medications
  • Genetics

Combating Insulin Resistance

One way to combat insulin resistance is through exercise and physical activity, as recommended by Dr. Myasnikov.
