Define Insulin Resistance and How It Contributes to Weight Gain
Insulin resistance is when cells in the body become tolerant to the hormone insulin. As a result, they fail to absorb blood glucose as they should, leading to elevated insulin and blood sugar levels. High blood sugars are associated with increased hunger and appetite. This can make you eat more calories, making you gain weight. Also, when your insulin and blood sugars levels are dangerously high, your body can store excess sugars in your liver, muscles or fat tissue. Blood sugars stored in fat tissue can cause weight gain.
