IR – Insulin Resistance

Posted in IR - Insulin Resistance tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:40 am by PCOSLady

IR – Insulin Resistance
~
Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body produces insulin but does not use it properly. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps the body use glucose for energy. Glucose is a form of sugar that is the body’s main source of energy.
~
When people are insulin resistant, their muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin. As a result, their bodies need more insulin to help glucose enter cells. The pancreas tries to keep up with this increased demand for insulin by producing more. Eventually, the pancreas fails to keep up with the body’s need for insulin. Excess glucose builds up in the bloodstream, setting the stage for diabetes. Many people with insulin resistance have high levels of both glucose and insulin circulating in their blood at the same time.

Medical research has now identified insulin resistance as a serious condition that causes your cells to become insensitive to insulin. When people suffering from excess weight or obesity fail to address insulin resistance, the possibility of severe complications such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and sexual dysfunction can dramatically accelerate.
~
The medical community is now beginning to understand how vital it is for our cells to receive the correct amounts of nutrients and minerals – such as alpha-lipoic acid, chromium, vitamin D and magnesium – in order to effectively process insulin and glucose.
~
Tests:
In order to process insulin and glucose properly you need to have these nutrients and mineral levels checked:
~ alpha-lipoic acid
~ chromium
~ vitamin D
~ Magnesium

Who Gets FMS? (Fibromyalgia)
~
Answer: According to a paper published by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), fibromyalgia affects 3 to 6 million – or as many as one in 50 – Americans. For unknown reasons, between 80 and 90 percent of those diagnosed with fibromyalgia are women; however, men and children also can be affected. Most people are diagnosed during middle age, although the symptoms often become present earlier in life.
~
People with certain rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (commonly called lupus), or ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis) may be more likely to have fibromyalgia, too.
~
Several studies indicate that women who have a family member with fibromyalgia are more likely to have fibromyalgia themselves, but the exact reason for this—whether it be hereditary or caused by environmental factors or both—is unknown. One study supported by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) is trying to identify if certain genes predispose some people to fibromyalgia.

FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic fatigue syndrome are conditions that often occur together and are believed to have a similar underlying cause.

There’s accumulating evidence that defective production of AFP is the culprit. Makes d-ribose a natural candidate for therapy for both.

A published case study showed that a woman with both experienced a decrease in symptoms following supplementation with d-ribose.

A larger study followed 41 patients with both. Subjects took 5 grams of d0ribose 3x a daily until reaching a total of 280 grams. There was a significant improvement in all five categories on a standard score:
~ energy
~ sleep
~ mental clarity
~ pain intensity
~ well being
On average, patients reported a 45% increase in energy levels.

Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome remain complicated and perplexing to scientists, these findings offer real hope for a solution.
