Insulin receptors in the cells become less sensitive and decrease in number, frequently resulting in overproduction of insulin. This condition is a risk factor for heart disease, hypertension, elevated cholesterol and trigylceride levels and obesity and, if untreated, can lead to type 2 diabetes. It can be successfully treated by dietary changes and/or medication.
