Abstract: The AIM of our work is to point out the relationship between insulin resistance and metabolic compensation of diabetes mellitus, as well as to explore the possibilities of improving these parameters by non-drug measures.
The rising incidence of insulin resistance associated with many comorbidities, especially due to the increase in obesity and unhealthy lifestyles, is a serious medical problem today. It is therefore necessary to be able to recognize and evaluate the presence of insulin resistance, prevent its occurrence, and ensure its elimination in high-risk individuals.
In our study, we evaluated 106 patients with diabetes mellitus based on glycated hemoglobin parameters, ratio of triacylglycerols to high-density lipoproteins, and body mass index before and after adjustment of dietary and regime measures.
Statistical analysis of our data showed a positive correlation between the assessed parameters of insulin resistance and metabolic compensation of diabetes with a Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.3156, and a decrease in glycated hemoglobin and insulin resistance after adjustment of dietary and regimen measures in 73.58 % of patients. Based on the above results, it is shown that non-drug measures are able to significantly improve the parameters of metabolic compensation of diabetes mellitus as well as those of insulin resistance (Tab. 4, Fig. 1, Ref. 18)
