Do you have a family history of diabetes or struggle with weight gain, extreme hunger, cravings, fatigue, hormone imbalance, hair loss, dark skin patches, and belly fat?

Have you tried diet and exercise but still seen little to no results? Insulin resistance occurs when there is excess glucose in the blood, which reduces the ability of the cells in your muscles, body fat, and liver to absorb that glucose or sugar and utilize it for energy.

Insulin resistance is often prevalent in conditions like PCOS, often causing PCOS symptoms to be worse.  Having insulin resistance can be extremely frustrating, especially when you feel like you're doing everything right.

How NES can help you with your insulin resistance

At NES, we work with our patients through educating and empowering them and providing solutions to help them reach optimal health.

If you want to understand why you're struggling with stubborn weight gain despite all of your efforts, we can help you get to the root cause of your issues and help you finally see results. 

The amazing NES process

At your doctor's appointment, your doctor may decide to order comprehensive blood tests to look for the underlying cause of your insulin resistance.

Some of these lab tests may include fasting glucose, HbA1c, insulin, and other specific tests including testosterone, sex-hormone binding globulin, estrogen, cortisol, and insulin-like growth-facing binding protein.

Other assessments such as daily glucose monitoring and sleep studies may also be ordered to get a better baseline of your insulin resistance. This information is useful in order to generate treatment recommendations for you.

The treatments usually consist of diet and lifestyle recommendations, supplement recommendations, stress management recommendations, medications, possible imaging, referrals to specialists, future lab recommendations, and next steps for follow-up.
