Increasing Insulin Resistance is associated with a decrease in Leydig Cell Testosterone Secretion in Men
For those of you new to the Updates, consider this a warning that I’m about to go on a verbal rampage. Insulin resistance continues to be associated with almost every ill of industrialized nations–even to the point where the next time a web page won’t load, I convinced that insulin resistance is the root cause… So, with a disease state so incredibly prevalent, so incredibly devastating, so linked to every chronic disease we know, why do I still have patients coming in that are insulin resistant and this factor is blatantly ignored by other providers??????
One patient’s boyfriend is American Indian. Clearly insulin resistant to the point of acanthosis nigricans on face and neck and she tells me that he’s been “checked out” and doesn’t have diabetes. Ugghhh!! If I had any hair left at that point I would’ve pulled the last bits out….
