Insulin Resistance Risk Assessment (Screening)
Indicates you do not have any sign of clear Insulin Resistance according to the parameters we used here. Keep doing what you are doing and live now as if you have IR to avoid it.
7 or 9 Points:
This score shows you are leaning towards developing IR over the next 5 years if you don’t work to reverse the cellular damage that may have already been done. We all have that to consider. Sleep is a fundamental focus for you, as are eliminating snacks, following an Insulin Friendly eating plan, and maintaining regular exercise. Basic fasting concepts of meal timing, spacing and Intermittent Fasting would be beneficial.
10 to 18 Points:
You have the clear markers for Insulin Resistance and possibly Metabolic Syndrome which statistically progresses to type 2 diabetes in 5-8 years.The full Insulin Resistance Assessment would benefit you and give you strong understanding of the process that has lead you to this score. It’s time to find a structured approach or program to slow the progression and work to reverse it on a cellular level. Your efforts would be best served by a rotational fasting plan, change to an Insulin Friendly Living eating plan, intensity exercise, stress resilience, and prioritizing sleep. All of which are incorporated in the Insulin Friendly Living Metabolic Health Recovery 6-month program if interested.
19 to 27 Points:
No time for a second opinion or to “think” on it. You will have to start a structured program including changing what you eat, when you eat, a physical activity including intensity exercise, sleep enhancement, and stress resilience. A 6 to 12 month structured program will serve you best. Extended fasting is the only thing shown to restore the pancreatic cells that produce and regulate insulin as well as the cellular mechanics that transport glucose and fat to your cells that are damaged. The full Insulin Resistance Assessment will give you more information and gauge any efforts you make to improve this. A professionally guided program is strongly suggested with special consideration for other health issues, medications, and health history. The Insulin Friendly Living 6-month Metabolic Health Recovery program would address all of these if interested.
