Insulin Resistance... I am miserable!

Insulin resistance. I have a bad case of insulin resistance so I have to eat a totally protein diet and I despise it. If I eat any type of carb I put on weight. I'm overweight, suffering from severe leg pain constantly. Every Doctor I go to says just stick to your diet there is no other hope for you. I need a second opinon, is there something different I could be doing?!

Insulin resistance can be difficult at first but it is not a life-long sentence. There are several things we can do to help correct it. First however I would need to get more information and do some tests - including a genetic panel. Eating only protein can be hard on your kidneys. We take a more balanced approach. Please give our office to make an appointment. I would love to help you out!
