I am a 33 year old woman with initial insulin resistance. Diabetes seems to run in the family, since my mother got diabetes right after pregnancy when she was still 35. I exercise everyday (strength training and cardio) and have beeng eating a low carb diet for 2 years. Still, I am slightly overweight and no matter what I do, I can't lose it. I just got my recent test results and my blood glucose was 102, my A1c was 5.3 and my fasting insulin was 11 - all seem too high for someone on a strict low carb diet for so long. My cholesterol is great, with a very high HDL and low LDL. C Reactive protein is also very low.
I live in Brazil and I am interested in Eleotin, specially for the fact that it can restore insulin receptors, though that would be very, very expensive for me. Do you really think it can help me lower my A1c, blood glucose, and specially my insulin, which is too high? What would be the best option for me? I prefer capsules if that is possible. Last but not least, I have adrenal fatigue and low cortisol and low aldosterone levels, which result in low blood pressure. Would Eleotin reduce these hormones further? Is Eleotin too diuretic? Since I have difficulty retaining water due to my low aldosterone level, I would prefer that it wasn't.
Thank you for your help,
