Comment from: Steve in Socal, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: November 29

I was diagnosed with insulin resistance at age 35 (last year) after experiencing symptoms of hypoglycemia such as lack of energy and feeling like I was going to pass out between breakfast and lunch. Diagnosis was through a multi-hour fasting blood sugar test. Additional symptoms included intense hunger, feeling cold at times, balance issues when walking and fatty liver. I have managed the condition over the last year primarily with diet including eating more frequently and trying to always mix protein with my carbs and eliminating alcohol intake.
