How does obesity contribute to insulin resistance?

Obesity is associated with an increased risk of developing insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. In obese individuals, adipose tissue releases increased amounts of non-esterified fatty acids, glycerol, hormones, pro-inflammatory cytokines and other factors that are involved in the development of insulin resistance.


I

Q

Question

Insulin is used as a result of excessive discharge of diabetes mellitus. With the use of insulin, diabetes medications are allowed to be taken when diabetes is just around the corner. My question is why the level of diabetes suddenly rises again after taking all the rules even after taking diabetes medicine? What is the way to get rid of it?


W

why does blood ph drop in ketoacidosis?

Acidosis in DKA is due to the overproduction of β-hydroxybutyric acid and acetoacetic acid. At physiological pH, these 2 ketoacids dissociate completely, and the excess hydrogen ions bind the bicarbonate, resulting in decreased serum bicarbonate levels.
