A New Paradigm of Insulin Resistance

F abulous talk by Dr Jason Fung, at Low Carb Down Under, on the topic of "insulin resistance". He explains, where it comes from (the long slow build up to insulin resistance) and where it takes you. Dr Fung explains how "fatty liver" causes "insulin resistance" and how it is cured, through a number of interventions including: fasting, bariatric surgery (gastric band or gastric bypass). He goes on to explain on how burnt-out pancreatic beta cells recover and start producing insulin once more. More shocks to come when he expands on how type-2 diabetes is completely reversible, even in people diagnosed 20 or 30 years earlier.
