Excess Weight, Obesity and Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes

Excess Weight and Diabetes
"...approximately 90% of overweight Hispanic children with a family history for type 2 diabetes have at least one feature of the metabolic syndrome and 30% possess the metabolic syndrome.

Our results support the view that improving insulin resistance may be crucial in the prevention of both type 2 diabetes and premature cardiovascular disease in this at-risk subpopulation of Hispanic youth."
Cruz ML, Weigensberg MJ, Huang TT, Ball G, Shaibi GQ, Goran MI.,J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2004 Jan;89(1):108-13. (PDF)
Excess weight and obesity greatly increase the risk of developing Pre-Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes, which can lead to a number of other very serious disorders.

Individuals with blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet in the Type 2 Diabetes range have Pre-Diabetes. Most people who go on to develop Type 2 Diabetes first become Pre-Diabetic. Doctors sometimes call this condition impaired fasting glucose (IFG) or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), depending on the blood test used to diagnose it.

The good news is that Pre-Diabetes is reversible. But if neglected, it may become Type 2 Diabetes, which must be managed for your lifetime and often requires daily insulin injections.

Type 2 Diabetes significantly increases the risk for cardiovascular damage as well as blindness, amputation and kidney disease.

Insulin Resistance and Diabetes - Understanding the Difference

Insulin Resistance underlies excess weight and obesity, which, in turn, can cause the onset of Pre-Diabetes. So it is critical that you understand the interaction of Insulin Resistance and the various forms of Diabetes in order to learn about avoiding related health complications.

Insulin Resistance and Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes are not the same. Insulin Resistance occurs when the body produces too much insulin but its cells lack enough insulin receptor sites to allow the absorption of insulin at a cellular level.

Excess Weight and Diabetes Pre-Diabetes is the intermediate step between Insulin Resistance and Diabetes; when someone has Pre-Diabetes, their insulin is higher than normal and their blood glucose is increasing, but they are not yet Diabetic. When an individual is diagnosed with Diabetes, their ability to make insulin is compromised and their blood sugars are rising higher and higher. Diabetics have low or no insulin, those who are Insulin Resistant have too much insulin.

The human body processes food into energy by converting it into glucose, which then passes through the cell wall via insulin receptor sites. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas. Pre-and Type 2 Diabetes are disorders of that metabolism and a malfunction of the process that converts food to energy.

People with one form or another of Diabetes either cannot use the insulin that is produced or the pancreas produces little or no insulin. As the pancreas struggles to keep up with the body’s need for more insulin, excessive levels of glucose and insulin build up in the blood stream, often leading directly to Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes.

Excess Weight and Diabetes Men and women who suffer from excess weight and obesity are particularly susceptible to Pre- and Type 2 Diabetes. Studies have shown that a single solution will simply not work in trying to address the myriad symptoms of these conditions.

While no pharmaceutical has yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) specifically for Insulin Resistance, there are drugs approved for use in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes.

But a single drug, or even a combination of them, will not eradicate or reverse Insulin Resistance and Pre-Diabetes. If you wish to return to optimum health, you have to consider a system which combines nutraceuticals (vitamins, herbs and minerals that are disease-specific), a realistic exercise program, nutritional guidance and a support system that will help you change unhealthy lifestyle choices.

"I have been on the Insulite System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has changed my life.

I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program. Your product is fantastic. I have cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing weight again after being "stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4 lbs since starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months supply. Thank you!"

"Obesity is no longer an American disease. Globalization's bounty—economic development, lowered trade costs, and rising incomes—has turned it into a worldwide pandemic for rich and poor alike. If it's left unchecked, the economic health of developing countries will surely be crushed under the weight."

"I cannot believe the difference the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my appetite is somewhat diminished."

"There is a clear and consistent scientific literature showing pervasive bias against overweight people. It is logical that the bias begets discrimination. There is now sufficient evidence of discrimination to suggest it may be powerful and occurs across important areas of living.

Studies on employment have shown hiring prejudice in laboratory studies. Subjects report being less inclined to hire an overweight person than a thin person, even with identical qualifications. Individuals make negative inferences about obese persons in the workplace, feeling that such people are lazy, lack self-discipline, and are less competent. One might expect these attributions to affect wages, promotions, and disciplinary actions, and such seems to be the case.

Overweight women, for the same work, receive less pay than their thin counterparts. This does not seem to be the case for men, but overweight men sort themselves into lower-level jobs. There is evidence that promotion prospects are dimmer for overweight individuals, and there are many examples of people being fired on account of excess weight."

"I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health. It's hard to express in words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily provided for me.

I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank you again!"

"Middle-age people who are overweight but have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels are kidding themselves if they think their health is just fine." "Northwestern University researchers tracked 17,643 patients for three decades and found that being overweight in mid-life substantially increased the risk of dying of heart disease later in life – even in people who began the study with healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels."
Obesity may be an independent risk factor for heart problems, MSNBC

"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type II Diabetes by almost 60%."

The Insulite System

Article by Dr. Sheri Colberg, Phd, FACSM

"The United States is experiencing an epidemic of obesity. Thirty-four percent of adults are overweight and an additional 30% are obese. Thus, 2 of every 3 Americans have an unhealthy body weight. Obesity contributes to over 300,000 deaths per year, principally through its association with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and several cancers. Obesity currently is the second leading cause of preventable death and will soon surpass cigarette smoking, the leading cause. Health economists estimate that obesity costs our nation approximately $100 billion a year. And these figures say nothing about the personal suffering of those affected by obesity."

"I started your product and found it really boosts my system, helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards. It gave me the energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.

You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side of the world (Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your weekly messages are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit harder. Thank you for everything."
