Metabolism is a term that is used to describe all chemical reactions involved in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organism. Sugar metabolism is the process of turning the energy from the foods you eat into fuel your body's cells need to grow and function.
Insulin resistance is the condition where the cells in your muscles, body fat, and liver are unable to use insulin effectively because they start resisting or ignoring the signal that the hormone insulin is trying to send to grab or absorb glucose out of the bloodstream for energy. Glucose, also known as blood sugar, is the body's main source of fuel. When the cells resist and don't absorb glucose, levels of this sugar build up in the blood causing higher blood sugar and insulin levels, potentially leading to type 2 diabetes.
The incidence of Diabetes in both young and older adults has tripled in the last twenty years; and so have the number of myths surrounding it. One of the most common widespread beliefs is that Diabetes is an untreatable lifelong disease that limits a person from being able to do regular things like they did before. But gone are the days of “Once a diabetic, always a diabetic.” Evidence-Based Studies have shown that it is possible to stop this progression and work towards successfully preventing and Reversing Type 2 Diabetes.
There are uncountable bacteria, viruses, and fungi in your body. While certain bacteria are linked to illness, others are essential for your immune system, heart, weight, and a variety of other health factors. These microorganisms or microbes living in your GI tract are called the gut microbiota. The gut microbiota's metabolic function is critical for sustaining host homeostasis and fitness, as shown by studies in germ-free animals.
