Insulin resistance is a physiological condition in which the body’s cells do not respond effectively to insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar (glucose) levels in the body by facilitating the uptake of glucose from the bloodstream into cells, where it is used for energy or stored for future use. When cells become resistant to insulin, it leads to several metabolic disturbances and can ultimately result in high blood sugar levels, known as hyperglycemia.
