    Does insulin automatically cause weight gain?

    I keep hearing that insulin 'makes it harder' to lose weight. I have also read reports that it can make you gain weight. If I took insulin is there a sure fire way to make sure I don't gain any weight?
    If I took up weight lifting could I keep off the fat or will it come regardless?

  2. CalgaryDiabetic

    Yes insulin is a weight gain agent for me and yes countermeasure are for sure needed. Weight weight lifting I have a lot of tummy fat still but also some muscle mass.
    Sure fire ? Nothing is sure fire but adding metformin helps and so does a low carb diet to minimize the insulin needed.

    I have been on insulin for 8 years and weigh now what I weighed 8 years ago. I have not gained. I don't think there is a "sure fire" way to make sure you don't gain however it is important to remember that taking insulin is not an OK to eat anything and as much as you want.
    Portion control, eating the right type of carbs and exercise will help.

  • Insulin Sensitivity And Exercise

    The physiology behind exercise's role in controlling diabetes: burns fat, increases insulin-independent glucose uptake and increases capillary proliferation. Type II diabetes occurs when the body fails to regulate its body's glucose levels. The failure can occur at many points in the body. The pancreas may fail to produce sufficient insulin, the liver may fail to release glucose into the blood, endothelial tissue lining the capillaries may fail t ...

  • How Does Exercise Affect Insulin Sensitivity?

    When the digestive system breaks down food to produce glucose, it is absorbed into the blood stream and the body’s blood glucose level (BGL) rises. As the BGL rises, the pancreas releases insulin to help the uptake of glucose by the cells to use as energy. In a non-diabetic, normal levels of the hormone insulin are released after a meal to help restore the blood glucose levels to normal as the tissues respond by absorbing glucose, storing it as ...

  • Exercise Insulin Sensitivity

    Although all exercise is beneficial for improving your health, is there one form of exercise that trumps all others in helping to stabilize blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity? Based on the latest research, it appears the answer may be yes. In today’s post I want to discuss what the research is showing and share with you my opinion based on personal experience. Before we dive right in I want to be perfectly clear with a few thing ...

  • What Is Insulin Sensitivity And Resistance?

    Abstract Since insulin resistance was first associated with type 2 diabetes and later with cardiovascular disease and hypertension, there has been considerable interest in the role of dietary and environmental factors. Sucrose and fructose have been a particular research focus. Research on animals, particularly rodents, has shown a clear and consistent effect of high-sucrose and high-fructose diets in decreasing insulin sensitivity. Experiments i ...

    Go to: Abstract Estrogen deficiency due to natural menopause or surgical menopause has been suggested to have an adverse effect on insulin resistance. Testosterone and sex hormone–binding globulin (SHBG) as well as estrogen are also associated with insulin resistance in women. However, to date, the associations of estradiol, testosterone and SHBG with insulin resistance according to estrogen level have not been clarified. We examined the associ ...
