How Insulin Resistance Drives Fatty Liver, Cognitive Issues, Metabolic Syndrome, And More

Food should be a tool for helping us feel our best. But most people don’t realize what kind of impact many of the foods they eat are having on their blood sugar—and subsequently their entire body. The symptoms of blood sugar imbalances are everyday occurrences for most people. Feeling hungry even when you just ate, craving sweets, and dealing with acne, hormonal imbalances, and signs of aging, like wrinkles, are just a few of the many symptoms of blood sugar swings. When these continue to go unchecked, more severe dysfunctions can occur, like type 2 diabetes, infertility, fatty liver disease, and dementia. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Ben Bikman, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Ronesh Sinha about how common dietary patterns like eating simple carbs throughout the day create constant insulin spikes leading to insulin resistance, which in turn contributes to many diseases and aging. Dr. Ben Bikman is a renowned metabolic research scientist and a popular speaker on human metabolism and nutrition. Backed by years of research, Dr. Bikman’s mission is to help the world appreciate the prevalence and relevance of insulin resistance. He is the author of the book Why We Get Sick, which offers a thought-provoking yet real solution to insulin resistance and reversing prediabetes, improving brain function, shedding fat, and preventing diabetes.
