Dear Alta
The reason why you battle to lose weight is due to the insulin resistance. I ALWAYS advise all patients with insulin resistance and/or diabetes to consult a clinical dietitian as the dietitian will have to work out a specific diet for your condition which takes all your individual factors into account (age, weight, overweight, activity, type of medication, etc). Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. You will benefit greatly from such a consultation because in the case of insulin resistance or diabetes, the correct diet is the most important aspect of your treatment.
