- n. The presence of an unusually high level of insulin in the bloodstream
Studies have also been published noting that increased consumption of sugar depletes our body stores of chromium, placing us at further risk for hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinaemia (too much blood sugar, too much insulin).
But exercise also reduces insulin levels and improves the body's response to hyperinsulinaemia excess levels of insulin circulating in the blood, which again increases polyp risk.
Unger R, Rassoul F, Richter V, Paschke R (2002) Relation between glycaemic control, hyperinsulinaemia and plasma concentrations of soluble adhesion molecules in patients with impaired glucose tolerance or type II diabetes.
Adiponectin levels have been shown to be reduced in adults with obesity and type 2 diabetes In a study of obese Japanese subjects with type 2 diabetes and CVD, conditions commonly associated with insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia, plasma levels of adiponectin were found to be decreased.
(ME), insulin resistance, hyperinsulinaemia (high insulin levels), hypoglycaemia (low sugar levels), candidiasis, inflammatory conditions like arthritis as well as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
They also suggest that in these patients strategies to improve the metabolic control should be directed primarily against hyperinsulinaemia by avoiding as much as possible the use of oral secretogogue drugs and of insulin treatment, giving preference to insulin-sensitizers such as metformin and glitazones.
