Insulin Resistance Treatment

Insulin is the hormone “key” that unlocks your body’s tissues, enabling them to utilize as fuel the glucose  or sugar that is in your blood from digestion of the foods you eat. This ability to remove sugar from the blood and convert it to fuel is vital to a healthy body. Your muscles need sugar to function, and so does your brain.

Insulin resistance is a condition where the cells of the body become resistant to the effects of insulin, that is – the normal response to the given the amount of insulin is reduced. As a result, higher levels of insulin are needed in order for insulin to have its effects. The resistance is seen with the bodies own insulin and if insulin is given through injection.

When insulin resistance syndrome is present many times high blood pressure and high levels of triglycerides are usually present as well. The very nature of syndrome X implies that that not all conditions are present but typically many are including these.

Insulin resistance is the underlying cause of metabolic syndrome, a complex of symptoms that often leads to weight gain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. The very best way to overcome this common impediment to good health is lose weight. Almonds, however, also help you overcome it.

Insulin resistance also known as syndrome X, metabolic syndrome and metabolic syndrome X is commonly overlooked by health care professionals. With the proven model of eat less and exercise more it is easy for health care professionals to overlook the possibility that your weight problem may be related to insulin resistance.

Causes:

1-a genetic predisposition (insulin resistance and the conditions it causes – type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and PCOS – tend to run in families.)

2-a less than favourable lifestyle, with loads of starchy food and not enough exercise.

There are many people who hear the words Insulin Resistance and think diabetes. While the two are related, they are definitely not the same. Although Insulin Resistance is not diabetes, it is a condition that can lead to diabetes.

Insulin is the hormone in charge of allowing blood sugar to be absorbed by the body cells, where it is transformed into energy. If you are insulin resistant, your cells react very slowly to insulin.

However, once your body move towards the pre-diabetes type II stage and beyond you may require medical treatment for the rest of your life. Insulin resistance, and type II diabetes in particular, is often referred to as a lifestyle medical condition related to obesity and a lack of exercise.

symptoms:

1-Brain fogginess and inability to focus
2-Elevated triglycerides. Optimum range: 70-110 mg/dL. 40 to 60% of total cholesterol. Can only be determined with a fasting sample. Triglycerides are a component of fat stored in the tissue.

Los Angeles Outpatient Rehab

Spending for treatment in the state of California has doubles since the year 2000 when voters passed Proposition 36, a policy that seeks

alternatives to incarceration for drug offenders. The prison population has decreased from 27 percent to 21 percent and taxpayers have been

able to save hundreds of millions of dollars by investing their money in treatment programs instead of paying for prison terms which do not

solve offenders addiction problems. The rate of imprisonment for drug possession offenses has decreased by more the 34 percent and residents

support the movement because it is helping save lives instead of destroying them. Narconon’s premier facility Narconon Arrowhead located in

Oklahoma  has been delivering drug education lectures across the nation since 2000 in an attempt to stop addiction before it starts through

education.

SACPA – Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act of 2000 ( Prop.36) became an effective law on July 1, 2001.  The intent of the program is to

allow first and second time non-violent drug offenders who use, possess, or transport illegal drugs to receive treatment instead of being

incarcerated. The SACPA program was designed to firstly preserve jail and prison cells for violent and serious offenders. Secondly, to

enhance public safety by reducing drug related crime and thirdly to improve public health by reducing drug abuse through proven and effective

treatments. Eligible offenders may receive up to one year of treatment and six months of after care through state licensed and certified

programs.

Helping offenders who struggle with addiction problems is a much better way of ensuring that society as a whole gains success instead of

repeated failures. Drug addiction continues to be a major concern in the Los Angeles area as well as the nation but, with programs like

Proposition 36  and continued community support more and more people are getting the help they need. There are thousands of treatment types

outpatient being one of the most commonly used due to it’s flexibility which enables an individual to continue to live their lives at home

and at work but, it’s not for everyone. Most addicts will find that they need more in-depth treatment. Long term inpatient programs that  

cover all the barriers of addiction: physical, mental and emotional aspects are normally the less expensive in the long run and give the

addict life long recover.
