One of the most common problems maintained by endocrinologists is insulin resistance, which affects about 20% (and growing) of the population. Insulin resistance occurs when cells develop a decreased response to insulin's signals because it becomes difficult for glucose to cross into the cell. With less glucose in these cells, this forces other hormones like glucagon and epinephrine to pump up their activity in order to reverse or remedy this state. As time progresses, this causes significant weight gain along with an increase in triglyceride levels leading to metabolic syndrome, type II diabetes mellitus,... The sooner you are screened for insulin resistance before peripheral tissues are damaged by glucotoxicity, the sooner you can initiate treatment that will help reverse these processes.
