Blood cells have what could best be described as "doors." These doors called receptors lay flat against the cells exterior walls. These receptors are the gatekeepers for the cells.
Cells need the glucose that insulin brings. They are in many cases starved for glucose. But, because of the continuous "flood" of insulin they have become...wait for it...insulin resistant. Insulin resistant is a term most type 2 diabetics hear from their doctors but haven't a clue as to what it means. Now you know.
The end result of this dance between excessive carbohydrates and insulin is that you are an insulin resistant type 2 diabetic.
