These are the symptoms for insulin insensivity. Note: Most people dont have any symptoms which is why a medical test is required.

I have 5 of 7 of these symptoms. I become very agitated and moody and upset if I've gone a few hours without eating and am very hungry. I also become very foggy if I've stayed hungry for a few hours. (I've never gotten bloated after carbs... though, luckily =P).

Does anyone notice if you have these symptoms?

After doing the poll, it would be great if you elaborated on your symptoms.

At the doctor's office, he commented that I had "higher than normal triglycerides"... but told me not to worry about it and said it means nothing.

Two months later, I googled it and read that the classic symptom of insulin insensivity is above-normal triglycerides. I also have 5 of 7 of the symptoms associated with insulin insensivity. For many years, I didnt have any of these symptoms.

NOTE: This has nothing to do with diabetes. Research has found almost 80% of the US population has insulin insensivity due to improper diet.

Yesterday, I began a diet which resensitizes diabetics to insulin within 3 weeks. I am pretty sure my complexion will clear.

I didn't take the poll because you've directed to moderate and severe acne suffers... I have stubborn mild acne, but 5 of these 7 symptoms.

I'm pretty sure 90% of the American population would select at least 2 or 3 of these. Too many disorders/diseases have symptoms similar or the same as these. They really can't be used to accurately diagnose things. I think insulin resistance is my problem simply because my face is red immediately after meals high in carbs and then inflamed bumps start to surface a little while later. cinnamon/chromium/vandyl sulfate have helped immensely with my symptoms
