How Does Insulin Toxicity (Hyperinsulinism) Cause Weight Gain and Obesity?

  1. Insulin is the master energy hormone of the body and it stores fat produced by conversion of sugar, carbohydrates, and protein into fatty acids in tissues.
  2. It builds grease (rancid fats) in the liver which sets the stage for a condition called fatty liver.
  3. As excess fats accumulates in the liver and fat, insulin in excess turns fat-bloated cells into cellular factories which produce fattening hormones and other factors.
  4. Endo cells lining blood vessels keep arteries open for free blood flow. Insulin in excess interferes with this endo function.
  5. Insulin in excess disrupts brain-regulated mechanisms which regulate blood sugar levels and influence insulin roles.
