The Insulin-Resistant state is widely acknowledged to have key linkages to metabolic disease and poor health outcomes. From the work of Kraft, Reaven and countless others since the 1970’s, we now have an enormous literature relating to it. Combine the term “Metabolic Syndrome” or “Insulin Resistance” in Google along with any chronic disease name, and you’ll experience a deluge of hits. Interesting is how prevalent the condition has become during the past few decades. For instance, a recent analysis suggests that over half of US adults have pre-diabetes or diabetes (which can be taken as synonymous with Insulin Resistance). The proportion might be even higher, if one utilized more accurate criteria. How did we end up with over half our population sharing a common (and serious) disease state? And more importantly - what do we do about it?
