Insulin resistance disease

«Insulin resistance (IR) is considered as a pathological condition in which cell fail to respond normally to the hormone insulin. To prevent hyperglycemia and noticeable organ damage over time, the body produces insulin when glucose starts to be released into the bloodstream. Under normal conditions of insulin reactivity, this insulin response triggers glucose being taken into body cell, to be used for energy, and inhibits the body from using fat for energy, thereby causing the concentration of glucose in the blood to decrease as a result, staying within the normal range even when a large amount of carbohydrate is consumed.

A habitually high intake of carbohydrate, and particularly fructose, contributes to insulin resistance and has been linked to weight gain and obesity(wikipedia)
