Insulin IQ


In the midst of a global diabetes epidemic, the word insulin is making its way into the regular vocabulary of more people.     How much do you know about this vital hormone?  What does it do?  What does it mean to be insulin resistant?  Are you at risk for type 2 diabetes?  What is an insulin spike or crash?

The Insulin Go 7  Team is travelling across Canada answering these questions and offering from A1C tests.  In just 5 minutes, an A1C test can tell you what your average blood glucose level has been over the last 3 months.   A reading under 7 is what you want!  (For non diabetics –  a reading over 6 can be a warning sign!)
