Increased prevalence of fatty liver in arterial hypertensive patients with normal liver enzymes: role of insulin resistance
See–I’m really NOT making this insulin resistance stuff up!! You would think so because it’s still ignored. Let me put it this way–in my opinion, there is no other condition that even comes close to causing the widespread damage to the human body and increases risk of death and morbidity like insulin resistance. There is no other disease with a prevalence as high as insulin resistance that is so grossly ignored. The medical literature is loaded with info and research on insulin resistance. The condition is very, very amenable to lifestyle changes.
As a summary, if the CDC, the American Diabetic Association, the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association wanted to have the most dramatic effect on their respective diseases that they have every seen, they would make a huge marketing push to educate the general population on this condition.
