Here is my question. Why do doctors tend to treat insulin resistance with more insulin?
My body resists the insulin it makes, so why would the answer be to make more insulin? I really don't understand that thinking. I have learned for the members here many tips for dealing with my resistance, but my doctor's answer is just take more pills to make my pancreas produce more insulin. This works for a few weeks when my new dose is happening, but my body just adjusts to it. So more drugs, less success…what is good about that kind of treatment. Isn't my pancreas going to eventually give up or wear out? Then do I face a life of Type 1 from there?
