Insulin resistance

When someone is insulin resistant (using Glucophage 2000 mg a day), does this mean that they have type 2 diabetes?
I' m totally confused

Hallo Anon
No one can be insulin resistant but not have diabetes ( it just means that you have enough insulin but your body does not use it as it should) The treatment is the same as Diabetes type 2 i.e glucophage but you should also eat like a diabetic and exercise daily. If you do not treat insulin resistance it may go over into diabetes.
