Insulin Resistance in the News

I subscribe to google alerts for the term insulin resistance. Some of the articles flagged are good, some mediocre. It’s a good idea to subscribe to topics you’re interested in, to keep up with the latest. This can give you ideas for blog posts, Facebook posts and other communications with your prospective clients. Here are a few I found interesting.

We talk about the underlying, insidious causes of insulin resistance related to processed food, lack of movement, sleep deprivation, stress and poor timing of meals. A recent article demonstrates the risk related to exposure to to third-hand smoke – on clothing, hair, and clothing.

Another talks about evidence that excess salt intake can contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes and LADA (latent autoimmune diabetes in adulthood).

And finally one on the link between eating red meat and type 2 diabetes. Here’s to a vegetable based diet with limited meat.
