It's supposed to dissappear or get b etter with weight loss but you xan be a healthy weight and still have it. I'm on metformin 1500mg because it's high. Low gi diet is supposed to help. Sooo many foods are low gi I was quite surprised! I honestly believe it's helped prevent me getting diabetes.
Exercise is meant to lower IR too.
I've been told I've got IR. Currently trying a Paleo lifestyle and exercising 3-4 times a week in an effort to get my weight under control. I'm loosing weight but it's slow going.. I'll be heading back to the doctors in a few months to have another blood test and check for changes. Very frustrating!
How are you going with yours SugarSkull? I'm worried that if I don't get mine under control it will cause troubles when we start TTC next year so I'm trying hard to reverse it. It would be much easier if I wasn't such a "meh" "go with the flow" person, I get motivated about something then lose interest too quickly or procrastinate. I have to keep reminding myself that my health IS important!
