Insulin Resistance (IR) is a commonly used and poorly understood term. Mostly, horse people associate it with “hard, cresty necks,” fat deposits on the rump and shoulders, excess weight, Cushing’s syndrome, and the threat of a laminitic episode. Past these external signs and symptoms though, what is it really?
The concept of Insulin Resistance was first introduced in 1939 as a way to explain why cells become increasingly unable to use glucose in “diabetes mellitus” [Type 2 diabetes]. Cells need to consume glucose to survive and insulin provides the “push” for glucose to be “taken up” by cells. But, researchers found that in Type 2 diabetes, cells are less capable of taking up the glucose they need and that this inability is related to a decrease in insulin’s ability to “push” glucose into the cells. So the term “Insulin Resistance”, now commonly called just IR, was coined to describe the notion that in Type 2 diabetes there is a “resistance” to insulin mediated glucose utilization. Insulin resistance has been studied intensively in human research over the last seventy years and it is now understood to be the root of the metabolic syndrome that frequently results in Type 2 diabetes
