Insulin Resistance

Insulin is a hormone secreted by the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas. It helps the body utilize blood glucose by binding with receptors on cells and acting like a key that opens a lock.

With insulin resistant cells, glucose can not enter the cells and it builds up in the bloodstream. This is called Type II diabetes, a condition in which there is too much glucose in the blood and the cells are not binding to the insulin
