Are You Insulin Resistant?

Previously known as Metabolic Syndrome X
This condition is discussed in our artical about: The Level 2 Chain Reaction

In 1988, Stanford University Professor and researcher Gerald Reaven, MD, announced the results of 20 years of research. He wrote a best selling book called Syndrome X: Overcoming the Silent Killer That Can Give You a Heart Attack - by Gerald Reaven, MD. In it, he noted that many patients seemed to suffer from several different diseases, all at the same time: High blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol and high triglycerides (dyslipidemia), high blood sugar (hyperinsulinemia), and heart disease (cardiovascular disease). At that time it was thought that all of these were different diseases. However, because so many people seemed to suffer from all or most of them simultaneously, he began to suspect that they were in fact the same basic, fundamental disease, or at least were caused by a common underlying condition or set of conditions. Since this underlying condition was at the time unknown, he called it "Syndrome X". Some people later began to call it "Metabolic Syndrome" or "Metabolic Syndrome X". Gradually, scientists began to understand that resistance to insulin was actually the single cause that united all of the metabolic conditions that had been described as Syndrome X. Only a few months ago, on October 17 of 2005, the American College of Endocrinology (ACE) and American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) announced their decision to change the official name of this underlying disease to The Insulin Resistance Syndrome.

Today, this problem is being researched by many thousands of scientists all over the world. As of January 2008, over 35,400 scientific studies involving "insulin resistance" were reported by the United States Institutes of Health ( NIH research web pages.

Over 35,400 scientific studies involving insulin resistance are reported by the United States research web pages The Insulin Resistance Syndrome continues to worsen as people get older, until they begin to show obvious signs of well known and deadly diseases. They develop obesity, cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, type-2 diabetes, Alzheimer's Disease, muscular sclerosis, and many more overt conditions. Their hidden, silent creeping disease has finally revealed itself. They are now in ...


Level 3 is full, frank, overt and usually deadly disease. It often reveals or presents itself to doctors as a heart attack, a stroke, diabetic coma, cancerous tumor, or other extremely dangerous event, sometimes a fatal event.
