Elevated Cortisol and Insulin
In this week’s video I discuss the connection between cortisol and insulin, specifically how long-term elevated cortisol can cause insulin resistance. Once this pattern is created in the physiology, it activates a vicious cycle of elevated cortisol leading to insulin resistance, which reinforces elevated cortisol. This pattern can lead to leptin resistance, obesity, elevated estrogen in men and elevated testosterone in women. I provide effective nutritional protocols to lower cortisol and increase insulin sensitivity.
