    A condition in which the cells resist the effect of insulin and do not effectively uptake and use circulating glucose.  While the exact cause of this is poorly understood, it is believed to be genetic.  Some medicines, like Metformin, can help to lower insulin resistance.  Exercise can also help to reduce insulin resistance.
