Our expert says:
As you may well be aware that insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes are two different conditions. Generally patients with insulin resistance have a normal glucose level. However the treatment for both these conditions are very similar. Namely a carbohydrate control diet, an exercise program, loosing weight and may or may not require Metformin. However it is a known fact that patients who have insulin resistance may develop type-2 diabetes at a later stage in their lives. And because of this reason it may be worthwhile testing your sugar levels regularly.
