A new type of drug used to treat Type 2 Diabetes by improving
insulin sensitivity in adipose tissue (tissue comprised
primarily of fat cells), liver and skeletal muscle. Examples
include Avandia (rosiglitazone), Actos (pioglitazone), and
Avandamet. Unlike other Diabetes drugs, these do not induce the
pancreas to secrete more insulin.
The major form of fat derived from food consumption.
Triglycerides are also produced by the body. Elevated levels of
triglycerides are associated with atherosclerosis.
Type I Diabetes
Usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was
previously known as juvenile diabetes. In Type 1 Diabetes, the
body does not produce insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body
to be able to use sugar. Sugar is the basic fuel for the cells
in the body and insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the
Type 2 Diabetes
Also known as Insulin-Resistant Diabetes, non-insulin dependent
Diabetes, adult-onset Diabetes, late-onset Diabetes and
maturity-onset Diabetes. This hyperglycemic condition occurs
when insulin that is produced by the pancreas is unable to be
used by the body due to the cells' resistance to insulin.
Insulin Resistance can be an underlying cause of Type II
Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome, two disorders that are often
Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF)
Activates inflammatory changes in vascular tissue that promote the adhesion of monocytes,
which are a type of white blood cell, to the thin lining of the blood vessels.
When a monocyte stuck to the blood vessel penetrates the lining, it becomes a macrophage that feeds
on low-density lipoproteins in the plasma. The accumulation of macrophages begins an atherosclerotic
plaque. TNF also interferes with insulin signaling and causes Insulin
"I have been on the Insulite
System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver
functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I
was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the
AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in
years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has
changed my life.
I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program.
Your product is fantastic. I have
cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing
weight again after being
"stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4
starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is
well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is
better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control
between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather
than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months
supply. Thank you!"
"Researchers agree that insulin
resistance is central to the metabolic syndrome. When target
cells are unresponsive to insulin, the pancreas responds by
pouring even more insulin into the bloodstream, leading to high
levels of the hormone in the blood, a condition called
compensatory hyperinsulinemia. The high level of insulin in the
blood forces glucose into cells but also starts the events
leading to arterial damage and eventually a heart attack. Under
these conditions, a person may not manifest either diabetes or
heart disease but could well be on the way to either or both."
"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health.
It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type
II Diabetes by almost 60%."
"I started your product and found
it really boosts my system,
helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards.
It gave me the
energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.
You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side
of the world
(Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your
are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit
harder. Thank you for everything."
"A non-pharmacologic treatment for these
patients is needed, since drugs prescribed to lower blood
pressure have been shown to actually worsen carbohydrate and
lipid metabolism in Syndrome X patients, negating the beneficial
effects of those drugs."
"I cannot believe the difference
the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has
changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my
appetite is somewhat diminished."
"...approximately 90% of
overweight Hispanic children with a family history for type 2 diabetes have at least one
feature of the metabolic syndrome and 30% possess the metabolic syndrome.
Our results support the view that improving insulin resistance may be crucial in the prevention
of both type 2 diabetes and premature cardiovascular disease in this at-risk subpopulation
of Hispanic youth."
