Dr Brewer continued: “This combination, if not addressed through diet and lifestyle changes, can progress from impaired glucose tolerance to type 2 diabetes.”
Moreover, recent research has pointed towards the “protein kinase C epsilon” to be “involved in the development of insulin resistance”.
Until more studies are conducted on that protein, Dr Brewer advises people to “make diet and lifestyle changes”.
Specifically, “drink tea – whether black, green or oolong – [it] contains antioxidants that increase insulin sensitivity”, said Dr Brewer.
