Frequently Asked Questions

Does weight gain cause too much insulin?
In the body, insulin plays many essential roles. It controls the levels of blood glucose, promotes fat storage, and also helps break down protein and fats. Excess insulin, however, can lead to weight gain due to insulin resistance or taking diabetes medication.
While there is no cure for type 2 diabetes, studies show that it is possible to reverse it for some people. You may be able to achieve and maintain normal blood sugar levels without medication through diet changes and weight loss. It doesn't mean that you're totally cured. Type 2 diabetes is a condition that is continuing.
To check your hormone levels, blood and urine tests will help your doctors determine whether you have an endocrine disorder. To help locate or locate a nodule or tumor, imaging tests can be performed. It can be complicated to treat endocrine disorders, since a shift in the amount of one hormone can throw another away.
Endocrinologists, who are specialists in hormones and metabolism, will help assess the cause of your obesity and the possible complications. They can also direct how you should be treated and prescribe your medications and monitor them. For a weight loss plan, don't expect overnight results.There are no quick fixes.
