Insulin resistance – hidden cause of hypothyroidism and weight gain

Is low energy and weight gain persisting despite diet and exercise? It might be time to check your insulin levels. I see a lot of women in my practice with insulin resistance and insulin levels exceeding 20. A value that still falls within the range outline by standard lab measurements, however its not normal! Insulin over 10 is already a warning sign. If left untreated it can leave you on the path to metabolic syndrome, increased risk of developing diabetes and also… hypothyroidism
