A Few Words About Cardiovascular Disease and Insulin Resistance Services

Every 3 minutes another Canadian is diagnosed with diabetes and when pre-diabetes is included it currently is affecting about 30% of the country’s population. Some people are not even aware they have it as they haven’t been diagnosed yet! The cost to the healthcare system is estimated to have increased from $3.4 billion in 2006 to $5 billion in 2016. It is estimated that the prevalence of diabetes has increased by 72% from 2006 to 2016 and will increase by another 41% as of 2026.

Insulin resistance progresses in such a way that nearly all body systems are affected. Increase in insulin production from our routine consumption of modern day diets, consisting highly of sugars and simple low fiber carbohydrates, actually stimulates the body to store fat and reduce its breakdown. This in turn leads to weight gain and thus contributes to such conditions as Cardiovascular Disease, as well as potentially disrupting hormonal health in men and women and may manifest in conditions such as prostate disorders, thyroid issues including imbalances in hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and cortisol among others.
