"I have been studying Insulin
Resistance and have been doing quite a bit of research on this
subject. I really am impressed by your site as well as the sound
of your products to treat this syndrome."
Carrie Power, APN
Resistance is an imbalance of glucose and insulin levels which has many factors that contribute to its presence in
the body. In essence, our environment and lifestyles have
evolved too rapidly for our bodies to keep pace. We are still
genetically "wired" to thrive on the entrenched habits of our
ancestors who consumed different, nutrient-rich foods and a diet
low in carbohydrates as well as sustaining greater levels of
movement and exercise.
Some people may also have a genetic predisposition to Insulin
Resistance. Others develop Insulin Resistance through unhealthy
Over time, the above factors have damaged the complex ability of
our bodies' cells to properly utilize insulin to convert glucose
This results in devastating effects:
The cells become desensitized to insulin, which builds up to excess levels in the blood stream where it can lead to the onset of a variety of conditions, including the cluster of increased risk factors for cardiovascular disease called Metabolic Syndrome, also known Syndrome X, as well as the hormonal condition known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) - a leading cause of menstrual irregularity and female infertility.
Unable to enter the cell, glucose is carried in the blood stream to the liver where it is converted to fat, which can lead to weight gain and obesity.
"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."
