How to lower your insulin level if you’re suffering from hyperinsulinemia

October 15, 2019

When it comes to insulin production, well
the pancreas is the focus of EVERYONE’s attention. Particularly when beta cells FAIL.
Now to be fair, the FAILURE is relative. The little guys are still pumping out insulin,
it’s just not enough to meet the extra-ordinary demand. The “unrealistic” demand is sparked
by widespread insulin resistance, which is a polite way of saying, the movers and shakers
in the body, ignore insulin’s advances. Undaunted, the pancreas keeps churning out
more and more insulin………..this strategy works for a while. Until, the beta cells CAN’T
take the pressure. Churning out insulin 24/7 is exhausting. So why do cells become insulin
resistant ? At this stage, no one knows for sure, why insulin becomes the pariah. It might
have something to do with insulin’s pushy personality. Oh dear ! Too much insulin is
definitely rather off putting. But, insulin should only be making deliveries at dinner
time. The trigger for beta cells to pump out insulin is primarily glucose. And as long
as your beta cells are strong and healthy, glucose levels only rise when you eat something.
But, in anyone who is metabolically challenged, insulin levels are high MORNING, NOON and
NIGHT. Night ? Where does the insulin come from ? Most of us, don’t actually eat when
we’re sleeping ! On paper at least, beta cells should get some relief from being the
insulin pumping machine. So why is it, that people with metabolic issues, wake up with
insulin levels in the stratosphere ? Could the insulin becoming from somewhere else ? Join
us for this episode of BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY TV, as we investigate WHERE all that extra
insulin might be coming from. Better Body Chemistry TV is brought to you by Dr Sandy

to your health. Now any textbook will tell you, beta cells are the only cells that produce
insulin. But they’re not. Recently a group of researchers based in the Netherlands rewrote
the text book. Beta cells are not the only source of insulin in the body. They are by
far and away the biggest source, but they’re not the only cells with this POWER. The Dutch
team found, fat cells are insulin producers. Using fancy molecular biology techniques,
they screened several different kinds of fat cells, looking to see if the insulin gene
was being expressed, and whether insulin was being produced. It was…………… This
is an immunofluorescent confocal laser scanning image of human visceral fat cells – the enormous
green blobs are the lipid droplets, in which fat is stored. The red bits, peeking through,
are where an antibody which recognizes insulin has bound, demonstrating that insulin is being
produced, by fat cells. Now when the team probed exactly which fat cells, could and
couldn’t produce insulin, both subcutaneous fat cells, that is fat cells located on the
outer layers of your body and visceral fat cells, that is fat cells located deep inside
your body, could churn out insulin. But, baby fat cells, otherwise known as pre-adipocytes,
were not insulin producers, no matter where they were located. Interestingly enough, the
fat cells made less insulin, not more, when they were exposed to glucose. Now the actual
amount of insulin being produced is tiny. But, if you have a lot of fat cells, each
producing a tiny amount of insulin, it adds up. Enough to count ? Well maybe. When the
researchers plotted insulin levels against BMI in 41 human subjects, ranging in weight
from skinny to morbidly obese, they found a straight line. Suggesting insulin production
by fat cells impacts overall insulin levels. Ouch ! Well fat cells are bad, it’s probably
not a big surprise – fat cells have a bad reputation, but up until now, the problem
with fat cells has been more about insulin resistance, not insulin production. It will
take some time to figure out, just what fat cells are up to when they churn out insulin,
but in the mean time…………..this research reiterates the importance of working on reducing
your fat mass. It will help rein in insulin, literally, since you’ll produce a little
less. For more tips & strategies that will help you REIN IN INSULIN, download our free

    Thank you for your slower style of delivery. It helps those of us whose first language is NOT English and gives us time to absorb this valuable information. Have sub'd.

    I wish that she had provided the link to the Netherlands research.

    I had an insulin test done earlier this year, and my fasting insulin levels were outrageously high. I am quite overweight, and this video helps explain how my body is possibly working against me. I have lost about 75 lbs over the years, but I have hit a wall and am having a very difficult I'm losing anything else. I still have quite a bit of weight to lose, and I know it is going to be a tough road. But knowing the situation helps. Carb control and intermittent fasting are my best strategies.

    Explain how the presence of an antibody means there is production of insulin. I don’t see how you got the conclusion from point a to point b insulin and insulin antibodies are two separate things.

    It’s not clear to me that you answered the reasons for waking with high blood glucose at 3:15 … For years I always wake up in the middle of the night with the urge to eat. Recently I tested my glucose when I woke to find it at 158! Until recently all blood glucose tests and A1C have been normal. I’ve been Dx with PCOS but now it looks like I have Endometrial cancer. This all comes on the heels of thyroid cancer three years ago. I am not obese either. Thanks.
