Many diseases traditionally associated with aging have a metabolic root cause, including seemingly-unrelated conditions like tinnitus and gallbladder stones. But with a metabolic origin (specifically with insulin resistance), there can be a metabolic solution. Blood glucose levels and insulin are tied to many more chronic diseases than just Type 2 Diabetes.
Ben Bikman, PhD, the doctor at the forefront of research and thought leadership on insulin resistance, digs deep in this video with Levels’ Chief Medical Officer and co-founder Dr. Casey Means to uncover the connection between metabolic health and surprising disorders that surface as a result of insulin resistance.
