Insulin Resistant or Genetic Resistant? Altering genes to modify insulin pathways
Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Insulin resistance is when the cells in your muscles, body fat and liver start ignoring insulin’s signal to transport glucose from the bloodstream intracellularly. We understand what lifestyle choices contribute to this but why is it that some people seem to do everything right, but end up with unstable blood sugars and even type2 diabetes? The largest contributing factors have been shown to be stress, inflammation, lack of sleep, the wrong kind of exercise and how our individual body responds to food rather than the foods themselves. All of these variables are dictated by our genes.

Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed will share key SNPs involved in several root causes of insulin resistance, how to prioritize their treatment and prevent and reverse disease.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the connection between high cortisol, high inflammation, lack of sleep and insulin resistance, and how this is more powerful than what we eat.
  • Learn how balancing leptin, adiponectin and ghrelin can reverse insulin resistance more so than reducing carbohydrates and increasing protein.
  • Learn which SNPs are involved in the stress response, inflammation, sleep and our metabolic hormones and how to treat each of them.
  • Comparative integrative genetic case studies illustrating the value of genetics at identifying the root causes of insulin resistance and how to treat those cases using natural supplementation, diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
