What Is Insulin Resistance? (Diet Is Very Important!)

What is insulin resistance? A lot of
people have heard of insulin resistance they know that it’s a big problem
but how big a problem is it and where does it come from is insulin a bad thing?
well today we’re going to talk about all these things so that you understand it
and hopefully so that you understand it well enough to help others start
understanding it because this is maybe the biggest health problem that we have
in the Western world stay tuned (logo) insulin resistance is exactly what it sounds like it’s the body’s resistance to insulin insulin is a good
thing it’s been around for as long as life has been around and it helps us
survive the purpose of insulin is to store the excess whenever we have feast
versus famine when there’s a feast and we have some extra then the insulin is
there to store it so insulin is an anabolic hormone anabolic means to build
up and what are we building up we’re building up tissues we’re building up
reserves we’re building muscles we’re building fat we’re building up anything
that can help us survive later so when we have plenty we want to save for a
rainy day so that later when we don’t have so much we can start using those
stores we can break down the stores and that’s called catabolic but today we’re
going to talk about the anabolic part because that’s what insulin is. the purpose of everything that you eat is to turn that food into fuel and building blocks and
insulin has to do with both but when we talk about insulin resistance we’re
primarily concerned about the fuel apart so anytime that you eat something that
raises blood sugar that sugar is in the bloodstream and it can’t get into the
cell without the help of insulin so insulin is like a key it’s a hormone
that plugs into the lock and it opens up the door so
the glucose can get inside the cell and this is a very tightly very precisely
regulated process it doesn’t happen by itself and remember that insulin is an
anabolic hormone it stores the excess so when we eat carbohydrates then there is
an enormous response of insulin because that purpose of that carbohydrate is
part of it is fuel in the moment but most of it gets converted into fat that
we can put in storage and use for later protein also has a moderate insulin
response because protein also gets turned into tissues we use it to build
tissues and muscles but fat doesn’t have any insulin response to speak of it’s
virtually zero because fat doesn’t get turned into storage or into tissue it is
already the form that the body needs it which is fuel so when we eat carbs we
want to turn it into fat for future use but the fat itself is already fuel so
it doesn’t have an insulin response to it everything that you eat is to become
blood sugar one way or another and the body likes it to be in a very very
narrow range and if you eat after a meal it should be somewhere between 80 to 120
if it’s been awhile since you ate then it should be somewhere probably between
75 and 95 a fasting blood glucose and that’s a very very narrow band that
means that at any given time you have it about one teaspoon of sugar in your
bloodstream so anything more than that is excess and it has to be stored and
that’s what the insulin does and why does the body want the blood glucose so
tightly regulated because excess is toxic to the brain and diabetic without
insulin where the blood sugar go through the roof they can end up in a
coma or if they take too much insulin so their blood sugar plummets they can also
end up in a coma so on the one hand it’s toxic on the other hand it is too low to
where the body the brain doesn’t have enough fuel to function that’s why the
brain functions the best it can do the things it needs to do at a very steady
supply it’s like you throw a log on the fire and it gives a steady stream of
warmth for for many many hours carbohydrates is more like you throw a
can of gasoline on the fire and it all burns up in an instant so if we want to
capture that all that energy then we have to be able to convert it to
something else and store it so that’s what’s happening so let’s look at a
normal situation with a cell so this here is a cell and inside it I’ve
written little triangles that are supposed to be glucose that’s not their
normal shape but it’s just easier to draw that way and we have a small number
then some of that glucose gets converted into fat and some of the fat is
circulating around on its own but in both cases we have just enough for that
cell to function for a while and then outside the cell we have more glucose
that’s the blood glucose it hasn’t entered the cell yet and the red circles
are insulin and the insulin is there to assist the glucose to enter the cell so
as we use up some glucose inside the cell then it needs to be replenished so
that the cell has fuel for its continued function and this would be a normal
situation it’s tightly regulated it’s a flow and it’s an ongoing process that
gives the body what it needs and not too much not too little but when we start
eating a lot of carbohydrates and we start eating many many times a day and
we start eating snacks in between now we have more carbohydrate we have
more glucose so that’s all of these little triangles in the cell is jam-packed with glucose and when the cell can’t use that glucose it
starts converting it into fat and it starts storing inside the cell first as
fat and then it starts spilling over so that it gets into the blood and then it
can get into other cells to be stored as fat anything the body can’t use at the
time has to be stored and then outside the cell we still have tons and tons of
glucose there’s an abundance there’s an excess of glucose outside the cell
because we keep eating carbohydrates we keep eating frequent meals so the body
doesn’t have a chance to burn through the stuff that you ate at the previous
meal or yesterday so the stuff just keeps building up but remember in the
bloodstream it’s toxic the brain can’t handle that much glucose so that’s an
emergency and the body says hey we got to get this glucose out of the
bloodstream let’s make a bunch of insulin so the more glucose we have the
more insulin is needed to push to open up the door for that glucose to get into
the cell but the cell is already full where is it going to go and this is
where the cell becomes insulin resistant because there is a excess of glucose
inside the cell there’s an excess of glucose outside the cell because of the
excess glucose outside there’s also an abundance of insulin called
hyperinsulinemia there’s too much insulin and all that insulin is trying
to push the glucose in but there is no room and the cell is saying can’t take
anymore I don’t care how desperate you are to get rid of that
glucose in the bloodstream we have all we can handle
that is how insulin resistance happens and the problem now is because the
insulin is a storage hormone it’s an anabolic hormone it works primarily to
put things inside the cell rather than allowing them out then we have all of
this fat inside this cell and an inside a bunch of other fat cells and inside
the liver but we can’t get to it because there’s too much insulin insulin is a
storage hormone it’s a one-way hormone it puts things in it doesn’t allow
things to get back out so if we look at the top reasons of why this mechanism
happens then it has to do with one blood glucose when we eat a lot of
carbohydrates then we’re driving up glucose on a regular basis but that is
typically not enough because there are lots of cultures around the world that
have subsisted on a high carb diet they’ve eaten potatoes they’ve eaten
corn they’ve eaten rice at very very high levels but they still don’t develop
insulin resistance or at least not significantly or at least not in young ages so the second thing that’s required is frequency and if you just
eat a couple times a day you could probably live a long life and eat high
carb and not develop insulin resistance the third factor though is the key and
this is where our societies have changed so much and so quickly and the third
reason is sugar because sugar is a special thing sugar exists in nature in
very very limited quantities its present in vegetables its present in milk its
present in fruits but in small quantities but when we refine it when we
start adding it when we extract it a white crystal stuff and put it in a bag
and we add it to catch up and to dressings and to cookies and ice cream
now we’re getting many many many times more than we ever could
from nature and what’s the problem with that the problem with sugar is that it
is 50% glucose and 50% fructose and the fructose is a special kind of sugar the
glucose can go straight into the bloodstream and it can be dispersed and
every cell in the body can use the glucose so if you’re weighing 200 pounds
then you have 200 pounds of cells that can use glucose so that glucose gets
evenly dispersed and it gets burned off by those cells but the fructose can only
be metabolized by the liver so now the sugar is 50% glucose and 50% fructose so
if you ate a hundred grams of sugar you got 50 grams of glucose to go evenly but
you also have 50 grams of fructose that can only be metabolized and transformed
by the liver and the liver even though it’s a sizable organ it’s somewhere
around three pounds so the liver now is getting 70 times more sugar than the
rest of the body on average and that is the overload that breaks the camel’s
back and the liver is your primary metabolic organ it’s supposed to do
hundreds of different things it converts one thing to another it detoxifies you
it handles your proteins it changes blood blood sugar it detoxifies alcohol
it makes glycogen and does all these different things and now we just threw a
70 times bigger load of sugar onto the liver so this the the packed cell this
is what happens to the liver and so sugar accelerates insulin resistance
many many many times it is even you could go so far as to say it’s difficult
to get insulin resistance without sugar but once you have insulin resistance
now you kind of broke the machine you have a certain carbohydrate tolerance
built into the machine but the sugar broke it and once it’s broken now you
have to backtrack you have to go much much further you have to be much much
stricter to reverse it then you would have to be to maintain it and then in
the light 1900s I don’t know the exact date 70s 80s somewhere they figured that
you know sugar is conceivably the worst food ever devised by mankind but let’s
see if we can make it a little bit worse let’s see if we can really ramp it up
and create some poison on steroids if you will and that’s when they figured
out how to make high fructose corn syrup because now they developed a cheap
sweetener that has a higher rate of fructose so fructose is the stuff that
poisons the liver because they can’t go anywhere else and high fructose corn
syrup is anything that has higher than 50% fructose so they just increased the
horrendous portion of sugar even a little bit more and now we’re seeing and
then you combine that with the low fat diet and you scare people from fat and
all of a sudden we have an epidemic of epic proportion of insulin resistance
and diabetes and obesity and so forth so there are many ways of figuring out if
your insulin resistant and we’re going to talk more in later videos but one of
the basic things is to measure your a1c your a1c your hemoglobin a1c is a
three-month average it’s a way of measuring what your blood sugar is on
average over a period of three to four months and if it is below five point
three then in my opinion it’s good it’s okay you are insulin sensitive and in
the medical world if it is between five point seven and six point four then you
are pre diabetic then your insulin resistance
equals pre-diabetes and if it’s over 6.5 then you have diabetes and according to
current numbers I don’t have the exact ones but approximately 20% of the
population is diabetic and according to official number somewhere around 30
percent are insulin disease resistance or pre-diabetic what does that mean it
means if you don’t change something if you just keep doing what you’re doing
then if you’re pre-diabetic you are more than likely to become diabetic at some
point in time and the official guidelines suggests that you’re okay all
the way up to 5.7 but it kind of it’s obvious that it doesn’t start at 5.7 you
don’t just all of a sudden end up there it’s a slippery slope so I would say
that you want to start paying attention as soon as you get over 5.3 now you know
that you’re developing you’re starting the early signs so instead of waiting
for the full-blown diabetes or the severe insulin resistance why don’t we
start working at it when you have mild or slight insulin resistance and just to
give you an idea of how widespread this problem is then you could just look
around and imagine the number of overweight people which is somewhere
around three-quarters of the population in the United States and that matches
very very closely to these numbers 20% diabetic 30% insulin resistant and in my
opinion 30% and I’m guessing at the number of people that have that but just
based on overweight people and lifestyles I would say some around 80%
of the population have mild to severe insulin resistance or diabetes and again
if you don’t change something then that pre-diabetes that insulin resistance
will continue to get worse and why should you be concerned because
pre-diabetes and biddies are associated with weight gain
increased blood pressure increased risk of stroke and increased risk of
cardiovascular disease so all of the stuff that kills the most people is
associated with insulin resistance and pre-diabetes
when is the best time to stop it when it’s full-blown or in the early stages
the answer is pretty obvious so let me ask you something
based on what we’ve talked about based on your current understanding of based
on what we talked about does this have anything to do with food and if you paid
any attention I think you would say that yes it has everything to do with food
and why am I asking that because when I went to do get my own blood test done
there was a little flyer on the wall from the CDC government agency Centers
for Disease Control and they had a screening test where they wanted to
check and have a little questionnaire to see if you were insulin resistant and
here’s what they were asking have you had a baby that weighed over nine pounds
at birth then give yourself a point do you have a sibling with type-2 diabetes
give yourself a point do you have a parent with type-2 diabetes
give yourself a point are you overweight give yourself five points are you under
65 years of age but you do little to no exercise then give yourself five points
are you between 45 to 64 years old give yourself five points are you over 65
give yourself nine points and then they’re saying if you are three to eight
points then you should watch your lifestyle
you should eat low-fat food you should eat high grain food you should try to be
active don’t smoke and lose weight isn’t that great advice eat low-fat
because that has no insulin response eat high grain because that has the most
insulin response be active is a good idea because activity helps the body
burned through the glucose that’s in the muscles and the muscles can get the
glucose from the bloodstream with less insulin when you’re active so that is a
good idea and of course don’t smoke that’s not a new thing that’s good
advice and then they say lose weight and you’re screaming after understanding
this I would love to but I can’t because I’m insulin resistant alright they’re
getting everything backwards the insulin resistance insulin is a storage hormone
it’s the insulin that stored the weight and it’s the insulin that keeps you from
burning it so that’s useless advice because it’s sort of just stating the
obvious you would if you could and if you’re nine points or more which the
only thing you have to do is to be over 65 to get nine points then you should
see your doctor because you’re probably insulin resistant and they’re right
there the statistics point to that fact but what they’re missing is there’s not
a single question here about food how many sodas do you drink how much sugar
do you eat do you eat processed foods none of that all of this means is if you
had a baby over nine pounds you produced a lot of insulin because you ate a lot
of carbs if you have a sibling with type-2 diabetes they ate a lot of carbs
so probably you eat a lot of carbs if you had a parent with type-2 diabetes
they ate a lot of carbs so you probably ate a lot of carbs if you are overweight
then you probably ate a lot of carbs if you are let under 65 and you don’t
exercise then you probably ate a lot of carbs but you didn’t exercise to give
your body a chance to burn it off and by the time to develop insulin
resistance now the exercise is still beneficial but it can’t really fix the
problem if you’re 45 to 64 then that’s how long you’ve been alive eating carbs
and if you’re over 65 years old then you’ve had more than 65 years to eat
carbs this is what they’re saying but there’s no question about food in here
and then they tell you eat low fat high grain etc so based on that based on that
complete ignorance it is no mystery why we have 80 percent overweight people and
80 percent insulin resistance and why the top killers are things like
cardiovascular disease stroke and diabetes we have to start understanding
that it’s a storage problem the cells have too much fuel and in the presence
of insulin they can’t use it and what’s the medical solution is to give people
things to push even more to help the body push more sugar into the cell to be
converted to fat that’s the solution and when the body can’t keep up anymore and
when the metformin and the glucophage is aren’t enough then we inject them with
insulin to try to push even more inside and it’s the exact opposite of the
solution so that’s how insulin resistance works we’re going to do some

  2. Hi, Dr. Ekberg. Don't know if you can address this, but my blood sugar readings go up after very hard exercise. I usually test between 90 and 112 normally. Today, after 50 minutes of, as I said, hard exercise, it flew up to 143. This has happened three times in the last week: 117, 128, and 143. Thanks. Perhaps others will be interested.

  3. Another great one! And yes sharing to my loved ones in Facebook. Thank you! i'm confused came back from my 4th month Doctor follow up and finally got my A1C to 5.7 from being in the 7.8 ish in the pass 2 years and losing 38 pounds all together. He was happy for my a1c score . And not too happy for my regular 20 hour fasting , told me that my stomach acids? which ketosis happens to be one is not very good for my body? Now not sure what to do? also found my bad cholesterol LDL: at 103 not too bad, but advises me to not eat just meat & veggies, since I have been wanting to give carnivore diet a try. After doing keto/low carb for a while now not sure what to do next.

  4. on you tube,i have seen a lot of vidéos about insulin and diet,and your explanations are the best.i would love to see vidéos from you about stress hormones.

  5. Dr
    Am 39 yr old female. diagnosed with high blood sugar 3 years back and since then taking metformin 2000 mg per day as per the prescription of Doctor. It came down to normal by some months but still dr told me not to stop meds and doses for lifetime..and am 15 kg overweight and planning to conceive but couldn't loose weight much. After getting the information about fasting I hv been fasting intermittently for past one n half months and also stopped taking medicines on my own….am feeling my huge belly is reducing and I hv lost 5 kg…also I checked my hba1c..it is 5.9 now…but it was never came down below 6 with meds on….6.5 was my last hba1c….should I continue meds or can I stop meds as am doing right now?

  6. Doc I've cut carbs, and all bad habits. Exercise. Etc. Still, after 6 months my A1c still a bit high on 5.6.

    I've read it could not be not so much IR, but rather that some of my pancreas beta cells are dead and I don't produce insulin as before? How can I test to know what is what pls? Thank you.

  7. Your very useful. I am following Keto [LCFH] diet for the past 3 months. I am diabetic. My creatinine level increased from 1.1 to 1.36 now. Any suggestion to bring this to normal? Thanks.


  8. Our addiction to food/drinks as well as our unhealthy relationship with food/drinks got us in this mess in the first place.

  9. Very comprehensive video on insulin resistance. Thank you, Dr. Ekberg.

    Excessive carbs get converted and stored as fat with an insulin response, as well as excessive protein to some degree. But if pure fat doesn’t cause an insulin response and is used as fuel, what happens to excessive fat?

    As an extreme scenario, if I were to eat a pure fat meal having 3000 calories after a fast, part of it would be burned as fuel, but how would the body handle the rest? Would some or all of it still be stored in fat cells despite the lack of insulin? Or would it somehow be excreted? What health issues could occur, if any?

  10. Excellent video! It is not by accident the processed fake and junk food industry, the medical industry of sick care (not healthcare), controlled by their boss the pharmecutical industry, tells you exactly the wrong things to eat with their stupid food pyramid and other bad eating advice, which will make most people fat and diseased over time, especially as they age. It's to guarantee life long customers for all three industries, and tremendous profits forever. They all work together purposely mixing good advice with bad advice and outright lies to cause confusion and to sound credible to the ignorant, and to make us sick and addicted to fake food and pharmecutical drugs over time. Thanks to real teachers like Dr. Ekberg and other experts on the internet, we are all getting more beneficial knowledge to get and stay healthy, eat real cleaner food from nature, and to hopefully completely avoid MDs and their toxic pills and dangerous procedures, except for unfortunate emergency trauma where they may help you at least get past the trauma.

  11. If everyone better theirs health , all the doctors and pharmacy and hospital will shut down , the system is so well orchestrated.

  12. Thank you Dr. Big pharma love diabetes and the associated problems, there's a drug to fix everything…….right??

  13. Is sweating a sign of insulin resistance when having blood sugar imbalances?
    If so, what happens in the body when you get dizzy or sweat because of low blood sugar?

  14. for some strange reason in the last 2weeks I cant stop peeing and loosing potassium and sodium . I cant sleep. Im on keto.

  15. 21:35 You got it backwards. High carb whole foods like Fruits, Vegetables, Legumes prevent all kinds of diseases including T2D. All of the healthy long live blue zone populations eat a lot of high carb whole food plants. If you meant highly processed carbs, then your statements about them potentially leading to T2D are correct.

  16. He should become a prof and teach these ignorant doctors about nutrition and natural ways to heal since that's how the body is designed. I understand that fat doesn't cause insulin spike while carb (simple carbs more specifically) will do .. so food type matters but what about quantity? If one ate a slice of bread vs 10 slices will the insulin spike be the same in both cases? Ppl who can't eat one complete (complete balanced ) meal at a time due to gastritis or other problems have to eat smaller more frequent meals. Specially someone like me who is grossly underweight..also older ppl 75/80 yrs who are so set in their dietary ways it's hard to change them to a keto ish diet .. also at that age digesting protein for energy becomes very difficult so does it even make sense to drastically reduce their carb diet? Adding resistance starches and cutting down simple carbs make sense .. but I could be wrong

  17. My low insulin diet strategy is:
    Avos, macadamia nutbutter, eggs, canned sardines make out 75% of my meals. Luckily I love it, and low on insulin spikes. Hope it works 🤔

  18. Hello Dr Ekberg, I need your help, I’ve been fasting (approx 17hrs) for the past 14 days, I thought I could easily get into ketosis if I simply ate fatty food and reduced my carbs in the 6hr eating window (full fat natural yoghurt, bullet proof coffee, chicken thigh meat kebabs, quiche, sugar replaced with monk fruit, nuts – pecan, macadamia.. however I’ve also had minimal amount of dates, honey, pastries and some fruit which I thought I’d burn off with exercise, urine sticks say I’m not in ketosis, I have extremely low energy, low mental/emotional state, digestive issues, I’d really appreciate your suggestions please, and keep up with the good work

  19. Dear Dr Ekberg , thank you so much ,i knew about insulin resistance for so many years as i am suffering about , but till know i did not find it the real cause , as i do not have any factor you mention in this video . i am not fat , no sugar in family , no potato , less bread and rice , no alcohol , i had some times only fruits , and now i cut it also . i cook at home no jank , and now i am in fasting mood mostly , everyday i have some exercise and walking a lot , no time to sit , then , the last where is the problem really ? thank you .

  20. Hi Dr
    I want to say thnks to you and your knowledge. You save and change all my life. Having diabet for near 11 years and eat every day three 500 tablet is terrible.

    Because of your knoweldge and good videos now I'm not use any tablet and my blod sugar is normal
    You did the best. Now I enjoy my life, doing exercise and I have a normal and beautiful life….God bless you. You r great.

  21. In my most recent blood tests I got an insulin resistance score of <25. Recommendation is below 45, and anything below 27 is considered low. Fasting glucose 79, fasting insulin 3.3 from a range of 2.6 – 24.9, and HA1c 5.2 Liver functions all normal. 🙂

  22. food manufacturers figured out long ago just how addictive sugars are for mammals. ever since it has been put in almost every processed food. I was surprised to even find it in my canned sliced jalapenos recently.

  23. Thank you Dr Ekberg. I will appreciate to hear your view on if the A1c guideline could marginally increase with age. I started dieting some years ago when my fasting blood glucose started to go up (highest 6.3 mmol/l in 2014). Firstly mainly by cutting out sugar. Weight reduced from 96 kg to 86 kg and my fasting blood glucose dropped to about 5.4 mmol/l (my height is 180 cm). Started LCHF beginning of 2016 and my weight reduced to approximately 78 kg. Unfortunately I have not monitored my A1c levels over time, but it was 5.4% in January 2019. I turned 65 in March 2019 and my weigh is now 72 kg on a stricter LCHF /keto diet.

  24. -I remember babysitting and mothers telling me to put corn syrup in the water bottle for the baby. OMG. Even then I knew it was wrong (that was 40 years ago). I'm hoping they learned better today.
    -My husband was the first "alien" (maybe the only one too) to ever visit the CDC compound. The section he was interested in were disease like ebola, H1N1, etc. Two things helped. 1. his own credentials such as resume and references/reputation in his field 2. Me being 1/2 American and one of my cousin from GA was to be present.
    -The funniest thing about their screening shown here: I had a baby 10 lb, 23". The biggest/longest/latest baby they ever had in the hospital. I was 5 weeks late. The fact he was so big had nothing to do with what I ate.
    -Both my parents were diagnosed T2D in their late 70's because they started to eat what was easiest for them – packaged food; they had no health problems before that. Should it count still?
    -I'm going to pass on this video to friends and family. I love your videos. Nicole

  25. So….if one cuts out sugar from their diet, works out every day and loses enough weight to bring their body fat down to 6%…can insulin resistance be reversed?

  26. Principally, if I have say 100-150g of carbs a day, I am strictly not in ketosis. What will the body do? Use the carbs then the ketones? Or is it the one or the other?

    My aim is not so much ketosis, rather low carbs, to fight BS and insulin spikes.

    I buy into most of keto and IF, but not 100%

    I battle to accept I strictly must cut 99% fruits.

  27. When i diagnosed diabetic specially type 2 ,,,I come across your youtube channel ,,then I found the best answer ,, i never use drugs and inject, i only change the way i eat food ,, now last 3 months my blood sugar between 70,80, sometimes 90 thanks doctor ,,,,,, ketoy diet is my medical answer ,,, from Somalia

  28. "Someone" knew about HFCS and sugar LONG before now. We have ALL BEEN GAMED BY GREEDY people-loathing devils who have set out to destroy us by addicting to the DRUG of sugar to get us on meds for the rest of our life (to milk insurance and life estate) – all for mere profit and control. "Let them eat cake" (and imagine themselves to be privileged aristocrats and DIE). Wake up people. We are controlled, harvested and buried by evil people. TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE BACK – eat NOTHING IN A PACKAGE, Trust NO ONE in govermnment. Almost all the so called science and studies are FAKE and funded by the people killing and poisoning you for fun and profit.

  29. Dr Ekberg, you explained this topic so clearly well to those without medical background that I can't help but to comment to show my great appreciations. Thank you so much. And you have a new subscriber!

  30. Overall, a great video. However, carbs are not turned into fat unless you take in a surplus. Carbs go to the muscles and the liver for storage (glycogen). Once those stores are filled, then it’s converted and stored as fat. Carbs will not make you fat. I understand that you promote a keto lifestyle, but for people who weight train, this is not optimal. I think it’s important for someone in a position of authority to not spread misinformation. I do love your channel and think you’re doing awesome work. Thank you.

  31. i don't understand why there are negative comments for such a wonderful informative video…:(

  32. AHA and ADA need lots of customers as heart and diabetes are billion dollar businesses. They have a conflict of interest so they push the high carb, high grain diet, which keeps the steady stream of customers going. The Japanese have known for centuries that super heating the body and sweating are critical to good health because it loosens ip and dissolves all the stored fat. Japan has less than 3% diabetes rate.

  33. My friend is prediabetic but can't afford to lose weight.
    Can keto help her gain weight? Or keep her from losing?

  34. If you are insulin resistant and then you get into Ketosis then you are not insulin resistant. Does that mean Your cells then unlock the trapped in insulin and un load it? So then would you be no longer insulin resistant?

  35. This video answered so many questions. What is the best blood tests to test insulin resistance (on my own from Labscorp since my doc won't do them)?

  36. Help doctor, I have type 2 diabetic. I stopped to inject becoz my sugar level is going down every day. .nw i continue to take glucophage850mg but the problem in sugar level going down Again. If I talk to doctor about what happened .he said I must continue to take all medication until am rest, …plz help me doctor sten, coz am dying with medication. Nw my blood sugar is going down, from 6,5,4,

  37. Hi, Dr. Ekberg. I am a subscriber of your Youtube programs. You are very very good at explaining medical problems, you are my favorite doctor. I really appreciate and thank you.

    Would you talk about Alcohol and its damage in human body, please.! I would like to send it to someone who needs to understand. Thank you.

  38. I'm not quite convinced of classification of insulin as being exclusively a storage hormone…
    We need it to access glucose energy. Even in deep keto body produces glucose that is utilized via insulin.

  39. Hi Dr. Ekberg , I am having troubles getting down my glucose numbers, 109.. am on ketosis and intermittent fasting ( 24 houres ). 3x a week since 4 months , I also do a 3 day fasting every month … I am 173 cm and 66 kilos .
    What am. I doing wrong ? ( very sticked keto)
    Thanks 🙏 tack

  40. Thank you so much! My doctor NEVER mentions diet…she pushes METFORMAN instead. Its pretty sad two doctors only recommend drugs not a healthy life style.

  41. I am 45+ and got 5 points. But my H1A1C is 6.1. No matter what I do it is same for last 3 tests over an year time.

  42. Based on Dr. Barnard's explanation of what happens at the cell level of why the body can`t absorb the sugar in the blood, I think this is wrong information. Also, consider Dr. Mc Dougall's teachings.

  43. Really thank you so much for this video. Extremely clear and useful. A lot of good information. I just want to understand why they don't give us this information and they continue to say that carbs and seeds are good. It's so incomprehensible.

  44. If the CDC advice is so bad about grains and low fat, it doesn't bode well for the rest of it. It's all generalizations and associations. No wonder so many of us are so f*&ked up.

  45. Dr. Stern,
    Your vids are amazing👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Two points I didn’t understand at the end of the video.

    1- Eat low fat! I thought we should increase whole fat intake and lower carbs!

    2- Eat whole grain. Wouldn’t that increase carbs, thus, increase sugar in the blood?

    Are they a misconception?
    If they are, then, I’m sorry if I misunderstood.
    Probably an (x) in front of them or over them would make it clear.


  46. This video is most definitely "Life Saving", educational content. Dr. Ekberg, thank you, for properly setting the record straight! Many general practice doctors are actually compounding the diabetes epidemic by prescribing medication that only treat the symptoms.

  47. Thank you very much Dr. Ekberg for this Video. You'r such a good
    teacher! What do you think about beeing on keto for longer times; is it
    dangerous? I'm on keto for 2,5 years because it helps against my chronic
    Migraine. Many people out there are warning me for too long being on
    keto, cause I could get a "physically insuline-resistence (in Germany we
    call it so)". This means, the Body can't produce enough insulin in
    time, if I eat carbs again. Is this correct? I can't believe it. Hope
    you will answer me. Greets from Germany, by Ingrid

  49. So if you're healthy but over 65 go to the doctor? Screw that. They won't let you out with out some kind of prescription. Best to wait till you have no choice then go to the emergency room. Or if you're really old, then just die.

  50. Love the comments about "you ate a lot of carbs." This is fabulous. Thank goodness. Someone who gets it and has a clue! Love it. I'm a health coach and work specifically with people who have Insulin Resistance. These are the same principles that I teach. So refreshing to find someone who is providing good information. Thanks for your work.

  51. I appreciate your videos. They explain a lot and I really wish my doctor would listen to them. She pretty much dismissed me because I don't want to take more and more insulin. I'm sad about this.
