Like "Hi Vauna, and welcome to dc. To know if you are insulin resistant is to ask your doctor, most type 2s are insulin resistant. I am type2 also and iam insulin resistant. To keep my a1c numbers low I eat low carbs and portion size meals and exercise.My last four a1c were 5.4,5.4,5.4,and5.5. I am still on my meds. And probably will be for a long time. I am close to getting my next a1c check soon. hope this helps you out. Alan"
