RE: I keep hearing about insulin resistance and diabet

Insulin resistance can occur even before someone develops Type 2 diabetes. In the early stages, the pancreas secretes extra insulin to compensate for insulin resistance, so blood glucose levels remain in the normal range. Eventually, the pancreas may be unable to keep up with this extra demand, blood glucose levels may begin to rise, and Type 2 diabetes may develop. A growing body of research suggests that any degree of insulin resistance can increase a person’s risk of heart disease, even if the person does not have Type 2 diabetes.
