Insulin resistance is a metabolic syndrome that affects the way your body responds to the hormone insulin. Insulin regulates the way food metabolises in the body. It plays an essential role in metabolising carbohydrates, proteins and fats specifically. Insulin is responsible for converting the body’s glucose in the blood, into fat.
A normal insulin response is when the body is triggered to take glucose to the body’s cells and used as energy instead of being stored as fat.
