Insulin resistance refers to cells (of organs) which resist to insulin, thus glucose in the
blood streams can not enter the cells, and then can not be used as source of energy.

What factors contribute to Insulin resistance? Here are several of them:
- body weight
- belly fat
- smoking
- less sleep
- less exercises

Resist to insulin is a kind of pretext to reduce cells ability in order to absorb glucose. This condition could cause increasing of sugar level in the blood.

In long term, higher blood sugar lead to development of pre-diabetes and then diabetes (type 2 diabetes) diseases.

Sure, physicians may know whether we are developing insulin resistance or not. The tests may include:
- test of Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG).
- A1C test for knowing pre-diabetes development.

Moreover, can we feel or know that our body is developing insulin resistance? Some signs are following:
- feel hungry often
- thirsty
- skin tag
- urination frequently
- feel tired
- feel tingling in hand and feet.

Insulin resistance may be reversed by doing:
- Reduce body weight and belly fat
- Healthy life style (no smoking and sleep enough)
- Eating healthy foods (fruit, vegetables, whole grains, fish, beans and legume)
- Doing exercises regularly 

Physician prescribes drugs to control blood sugar, they may include:
- Fortamet
- Glucophage
- Glumetza
- Riomet
