Weight Gain

Weight gain and obesity are two related conditions that often occur together. Insulin resistance occurs when the body’s cells become less responsive to the hormone insulin, which is produced by the pancreas and helps regulate blood sugar levels. This can lead to elevated blood sugar levels and, over time, may contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. Obesity, on the other hand, is a condition characterized by excess body fat that can increase the risk of several health problems, including insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Weight gain and Obesity can cause insulin resistance by promoting the release of inflammatory substances that can interfere with insulin signaling and metabolism. Excessive weight gain and obesity can create a vicious cycle, where obesity leads to insulin resistance, which in turn can promote further weight gain. This cycle can be broken by making healthy lifestyle changes such as exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet, and maintaining a healthy weight. In some cases, medication may also be necessary to manage Insulin resistance and related health problems as explained in our treatment plans.
