Trying to Bring All These Things Together

High fasting insulin levels are correlated with sleep apnea; fasting insulin levels correlated with coronary heart disease; CPAP treatment for sleep apnea reduces CHD risk, apparently because of increased oxygen to the myocardium.  I am having a hard time figuring out the relationship (if any)  between insulin level and atherosclerosis.  I have seen a paper which I blogged about concerning evidence that blood sugar levels increased risk of atherosclerosis; cannot find it now.


  1. High insulin seems likely to be a marker for other things, like glucose resistance. If the cells aren't absorbing glucose properly, high blood sugar levels will cause higher insulin release.

  2. Follow Dr. Michael Eades and Gary Taubes.You'll never want to eat sugar again.
