An estimated 20 percent of Americans (more than 55 million people) have insulin resistance – and most of them don’t know it! If your diet is high in carbohydrates, what you eat could cause your body to become immune to your own insulin, which regulates your blood sugar levels. Her own experience with insulin resistance caused medical journalist Miryam Ehrlich Williamson to research its impact, which she found surprisingly pervasive. Although doctors seldom make the connection and rarely mention insulin resistance to their patients, it is a contributing factor in a plethora of diseases and disorders; heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and an abnormal tendency toward blood clots; obesity and almost all cases of Type 2 diabetes and hypoglycemia; breast, colorectal, and prostate cancer; infertility, Candidiasis, osteoporosis; autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and arthritis. Drawing on the latest medical studies and reports, and on her extensive knowledge of the human body’s functions, Williamson provides an invaluable primer on how the body processes sugars and starches, and the effect increased glucose levels have on metabolism and health. She also – shows the links between insulin resistance and each disease or ailment; offers essential advice on making lifestyle changes that can control or even reverse insulin resistance; compares five popular high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets to help you find one that best suits your taste, temperament, and lifestyle. Insulin resistance can be controlled, even reversed, and Blood Sugar Blues gives you the knowledge, tools, and health-affirming message that will encourage and inspire you to face this serious condition.
