A poor diet as well as snacking can induce the pancreas to secrete large amounts of insulin. There is also the normal aging that causes the insulin receptors on cell membranes to lose their youthful sensitivity or functionality. In an abnormal situation, too much sugar consumption leads to elevated blood glucose levels, which chronically elevate blood insulin levels. As a consequence, the insulin receptors stop responding to the insulin (medically known as the pathological condition called “insulin receptor resistance” or “insulin resistance”), and the glucose cannot enter the cell. Therefore, the blood glucose continues to increase, which further increases blood insulin, creating more insulin receptor resistance.
