I have been wondering a lot lately about insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia because I strongly believe that is what is primarily wrong with me. When I adopted a diet more like a hunter-gatherer my numbers normalized and I have been told that I can consider my diabetes as in remission since I don't present symptoms.
This was an interesting article. I have often wondered how having access to unprecedented amounts of energy rich food might affect us as a species that has primarily had to function in a feast or famine mode for much of the time it has been here.
Perhaps some of us are not broken (as far as we would define broken) but we are better adapted for starvation and famine than others?
