Understanding Insulin Resistance and Diabetes    NEW!

Right now, one in three people reading this has prediabetes, and 90% do not know it. If nothing changes, by the year 2050, one in three people living in the US (including children) will have overt Type 2 diabetes. These statistics could change if we had a better understanding of our body’s physiology! That is what this course is all about. Your body is a miracle and is most likely functioning exactly as mother nature intended, although that may not work as well in 2024 as it did 300,000 years ago. In the four course lectures, you will learn what insulin resistance and diabetes are, why Type 2 diabetes is epidemic, and how the human body interacts with food. In addition, you will gain an understanding of the physical consequences of insulin resistance, what environmental factors play a role in it, what the signs of insulin resistance are, and the latest treatment guidelines from the USDA and the American Diabetes Association and how those guidelines came to be.
