Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome
Dr. Richard Maurer
Richard Maurer, MD:
How to Understand, Reveal and Treat People with Insulin Resistance
Over 30% of Americans currently have the condition Insulin Resistance, aka metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes. While there is the possible end-point of diabetes, insulin resistance itself is an underlying cause of hypertension, elevated lipids, fatty liver, arthritis, inflammation, weight gain and obesity. When understood and interpreted correctly, physical evaluation and basic blood tests reveal this condition and help track its cure.
The cure of insulin resistance, and all its associated conditions, relies on the cliché of diet and exercise. We will explore the FatBack Diet, a higher fat traditional diet and the positive changes that occur in one's metabolism and blood test findings. We will review the home-use of body fat calipers to diagnose the condition and assess treatment progress. This lecture is appropriate for clinicians and those interested in blood tests, physical findings, underlying physiology and dietary cure of insulin resistance.
