If you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes or a health professional that works with these patients, chances are, you probably think you have an understanding of what the underlying physiological issue is.

 

I chatted with Dr Tom Wood who breaks it all down for us; after listening you’ll have a greater understanding of insulin resistance than the vast majority of health professionals who work with these patients (a.k.a. Type 2 diabetes) do. You’ll finally understand that it’s not a blood sugar issue but rather an insulin issue.
