The above  treatment  can only mask your symptoms  till you are taking them but does nothing  to  heal the body. If you  really want to know  the root cause of your problem and heal, please  read my blogs on www.truhealing.com or practo health  feeds. Hope that helps....

You have been treated properly... Insulin resistance is thought to be due to increased weight...so with medication fallow bellow advices as well. You should decrease carbohydrate intake, take foods made-up of whole grains like whole wheat bread, Decrease fat intake and increase protein content. Take high fiber diet, fruits, vegetables but avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes. Take plenty of water avoid sugar drinks....good luck.
