Nadir Ali: How to measure your metabolic health: insulin sensitivity or insulin resistance

Dr Ali explains how we can measure our own surrogate markers for metabolic health and strength: using our blood work measures for triglycerides and HDL. Also, he explains the key role insulin plays in controlling blood sugar and fat cells. Physicians should check our insulin levels since high insulin leads to high blood pressure, gout, and many other chronic diseases. We should focus on diet, intermittent fasting and exercise rather than medicines to manage our health.
