Insulin Resistance And Acanthosis Nigricans In Kids

What is Insulin and where does it come from? Insulin is a hormone produced by an organ called the pancreas. Insulin tells many tissues of the body to allow sugar to enter the cells. We need sugar in our cells because it is the main energy source for our body. Sugar is the fuel for our body like gasoline is the fuel for a car. Why is Insulin so important? Our bodies convert the food that we eat into energy. This energy is used for our muscles, brain, and heart. Like a car, a steady stream of fuel is important for good performance. For our body to perform at its best, Insulin levels in the blood are constantly adjusted by the body to keep blood sugars normal at all times. In persons without diabetes, blood sugar levels will remain between 80-120 before meals no matter what or how much food has been eaten. There are many things that raise the blood sugar, but insulin is the only hormone that can lower your blood sugar. What is Insulin resistance? Insulin Resistance happens when insulin is blocked or reduced. Even though there is plenty of insulin, the insulin does not work properly. When the insulin is not working well, the body has to make even more insulin just to keep blood sugars Continue reading >>

    High Insulin, normal glucose, deer in the headlights

    I am a 32 year old female, two children. Last January after my second was born I decided to turn my life around. I lost 25 pounds very quickly. Then I stalled out and gained some back. 7 months after the plateau I was finally diagnosed with hypothyroidism (low T3.) That was four months ago. My doctor ordered a 3-hour glucose test. I just got the results:
    Fasting Glucose: 89
    Insulin 1/2 Hour 108.2 20-112
    Insulin 1 Hour 177.7
    Insulin 2 hour 144.1
    Glucose 1/2 Hour 194 <200 mg/dL
    Glucose 1 Hour 168 <200 mg/dL
    Glucose 2 Hour 119 <140 mg/dL
    I eat a low carb, high fat diet. I do not eat processed foods. I do not drink soda. I do not smoke. I do not eat lots of sugar, even being careful to maintain a low intake of fruit. When I do have a treat, it is usually 80% or higher dark chocolate.
    What do I do? What might these results mean?

    The results indicate pre diabetes but you were very close to the 200 diabetic threshold. The high insulin levels indicate insulin resistance. That means your pancreas still produces insulin, but your cells don't always recognize it so your pancreas overproduces insulin. I have heard that if you follow a low carb diet , you should go off of it for a week or so to get accurate results on OGTT.

C-peptide

A C-peptide test measures the level of this peptide in the blood. It is generally found in amounts equal to insulin because insulin and C-peptide are linked when first made by the pancreas. Insulin helps the body use and control the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Insulin allows glucose to enter body cells where it is used for energy. The level of C-peptide in the blood can show how much insulin is being made by the pancreas . C-peptide does not affect the blood sugar level in the body. A C-peptide test can be done when diabetes has just been found and it is not clear whether type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes is present. A person whose pancreas does not make any insulin (type 1 diabetes) has a low level of insulin and C-peptide. A person with type 2 diabetes can have a normal or high level of C-peptide. A C-peptide test can also help find the cause of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), such as excessive use of medicine to treat diabetes or a noncancerous growth (tumor) in the pancreas (insulinoma). Because man-made (synthetic) insulin does not have C-peptide, a person with a low blood sugar level from taking too much insulin will have a low C-peptide level but a high level of Continue reading >>

    I just got the insulin panel back and it said it was elevated. I guess normal is below 24 and mine was 31. The letter said we needed to start medication at the follow up visit.
    Does this mean I am a diabetic? If I have to much insulin then shouldn't my sugar levels be low and not high? Two hour after most meals I run about 160 to 250. So I am very confused as to what is going on? Thank you for you help with this.

    With Insulin resistance, that means your body isn't utilizing insulin as well as it should. With that, your sugar goes up. Your body tries to compensate by pushing out even more insulin to counteract the high sugar.
    "Two hour after most meals I run about 160 to 250"
    Your doctor is telling you that you are prediabetic with numbers like these?
    Might want to request an OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Time) from your doctor. It's what is used to diagnose - but a couple fasting sugars above 127 (or 128?) is used also. How are your fasting sugars (blood sugar taken after 8-12 hours of no food)?
    With your sugars like that, he hasn't ordered a Hemoglobin A1c (aka A1c, HbA1c, HbA1c)?
    I'm not a doctor, but yes, those numbers seem high. You are not in any immediate danger or anything like that, but you are going to want to get to the doc and figure everything out. Your doctor should steer you down some pathway. If he doesn't and wants to keep playing things by ear, you should probably find a new doctor.
    I'm not trying to be mean, but the odds of high insulin and sugars in that range being something OTHER than diabetes have to be extremely low.

High Insulin, Normal Blood Sugar Levels. What Is It?

Is it hypoglycemia? What do I eat with that? I know how to cure type 2 diabetes (Newcastle study) but not sure if it is the same for high insulin levels. I have checked all hypoglycemia plans and it seems that they say to have a snack every 2 hours plus a serving of grain with every meal. Is there anybody here who took care of their hypoglycemia with Paleo and devised a special meal plan? Thanks! Continue reading >>
