Insulin and Living to One Hundred
People who live to a hundred years old have better control over their blood sugar and insulin than other elderly people.
It’s one of the few differences researchers have found in the very old.
Many of these people are lucky to have genetics that effortlessly protect them from insulin resistance, but we can all have a similar control by not eating foods that spike our insulin levels.
Good genes or good behavior, either way the result is the same.
And remember high insulin is THE killer of our age. It is associated with EVERY chronic illness you can think of.
Here’s a few published scientific studies of people over 100 years old, that point out their control of insulin as compared to other elderly people.
