Insulin resistance is when the cells in your body start ignoring the signal that the
hormone insulin is trying to send out which is to grab glucose out of the bloodstream
and put it into our cells. Having insulin resistance is a warning that without
intervention and effective lifestyle changes, someone with prediabetes may go on to
develop type 2 diabetes. And because it increases the chance of developing type 2
diabetes, it is important to lose weight in order to better control your condition.
