Dr. Tumpati, I can't thank you enough for helping transformer my daughter into a much happier young lady and she looks amazing and also thanks for helping me lose 25 pounds I feel great.
My appt with Dr Tumpati was great he asked me questions about the problems that I've been having and after I answered him we discussed it. He was very professional but very down to earth as well. I will definitely be seeing him in the future. And his secretery/nurse Laura has been excellent as well there was a problem getting a medication filled it had to be pre-authorized and she made many phone calls to make sure that I was able to get the medication filled!!! So my overall experience at this office was excellent!!!! - David T.
Patricia has type 2 diabetes taking 165 units of insulin a day before starting the W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers of America's non-surgical weight loss program.
After losing about 50 lbs, she came off insulin completely to the complete disbelief even by her own endocrinology doctor.
What causes type 2 diabetes?
The root cause of type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance! As insulin resistance means the body has to fight harder and produce more insulin, and since insulin is a very anabolic hormone, this explains weight gain even in those that do not have diabetes.
Can I be insulin resistant even though I do not have diabetes?
It is estimated that up to 71 percent of the population in the United States has some degree of insulin resistance although only 11 percent have full blown diabetes. In fact, diabetes takes up to 20 years to present and most people just have compensatory stage or prediabetes. If you have excess belly or upper body weight, you may be insulin resistant!
Can insulin resistance explain why I gain weight in the tummy?
Yes. This insulin resistance leads to compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin leading to a lot of weight gain in the belly and upper part of the body.
Why do I crave certain foods?
Insulin resistance also leads to cravings for starchy food leading weight gain!
