Don't Eat Yourself Sick - A primer on Insulin Resistance and Disease

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Apr 17, 2018

The road to chronic disease — from arthritis to heart disease — is paved with sugar and refined carbohydrates. It’s a freeway that leads straight to insulin resistance syndrome, given the right conditions, most notably being overweight and inactive.

The devastating chain of events that leads to chronic disease goes like this:

  • Carbs and sugar break down in the digestive tract to glucose that the body uses for energy.
  • Beta cells in the pancreas make and secrete insulin into the blood to ferry any glucose you don’t use to muscle, fat, and liver cells for storage.
  • Given the right conditions and more glucose than your cells can manage at the moment, the call goes out for even more insulin.
  • Beta cells keep the insulin flowing but eventually the body’s cells can’t absorb it or the glucose building up in your blood stream. That’s called insulin resistance.
  • Eventually the beta cells can’t keep up and insulin levels plummet. Now your bloodstream is flooded with glucose, which damages nerves and blood vessels, causes inflammation, and leads to a host of chronic diseases.

That’s why one of the best ways that you can fight obesity is to create wellness—focused activities that help you find an enjoyable workout routine, improve sleep, eat more balanced diet and address any mental health issues that could be contributing to your weight gain.

10 Chronic Diseases Found with Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolerance

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Apr 30, 2012

As I explained in my last post, Celiac disease (CD) is much more prevalent than many doctors and patients realize. I also revealed the research that shows most people with CD have silent CD. Silent CD means the person afflicted doesn't have any GI symptoms, but instead has other life-robbing disease symptoms.
