A short note on assessment of insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance is a complex metabolic disorder characterized by the reduced responsiveness of target tissues to insulin's actions. It is a significant risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and other health complications. This article aims to provide an in-depth understanding of insulin resistance, including its underlying mechanisms, associated risk factors, clinical manifestations, diagnostic methods, and potential management strategies. By comprehending the intricate aspects of insulin resistance, we can develop more effective prevention and treatment approaches for this growing global health concern.Author(s): Wallace Matthews*
