Endlessly fascinated by the scope of diseases caused by insulin resistance and what to do about it.
Associate Professor, Dr Ben Bikman, is today’s guest interview. Ben is back with us to talk about how insulin resistance is making us sick. He explains how a wide range of diseases are in some ways connected to insulin resistance and how lifestyle interventions in terms of diet can stop progression.
