Our expert says:
Hyperinsulinism is a condition where the insulin produced by the body no longer works properly, i.e. it is no longer able to move glucose out of the blood and into the cells to serve as a source of energy. The body tends to make more and more insulin (as indicated by 'hyper' which means more) in an attempt to regulate blood sugar, but to no avail. Because the insulin you produce does not clear glucose out of the blood, you would also have high blood glucose levels. This condition is also called syndrome X or insulin resistance. Diet plays a major role in treating this condition, so Please consult a clinical dietitian who will help you plan your diet and take the insulin resistance into account. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. You will require a low-fat diet based on foods with a low glycaemic index (GI). Regular exercise also helps to control this condition, so think of joining Walk for Life or a good gym.
