You can be walking around with elevated blood sugar levels and NOT even know it! It's subtle, insidious and can go undetected. But it ultimately reaches a boiling point and from there, a series of chain reactions go off in the body. Weight gain (particularly belly fat), brain fog, fatigue and organ damage are tied to insulin resistance. The best thing you can do is get a better understanding of what's happening with your body.
