Insulin resistance, also called prediabetes, is a health condition with which the cells in your body are not adequately sensitive to the normal amount of insulin secreted by your pancreas, resulting in temporary high blood sugar levels after eating or drinking. Your pancreas tries to produce more insulin to lower your high blood sugar levels. The obvious effects of IR are fatigue and gradual weight gain.
