Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You need to lose weight to increase your leptin sensitivity.
  • In general, insulin resistance generates leptin resistance. It means one should not let the insulin level to go up.
  • Sugar makes insulin go up and we are overdosed with sugar in this country. If we get the sugar down, our insulin resistance would improve and that would help with the weight loss.
  • You need to do regular exercise and eat green vegetables and green tea. You can also try any diet, which is very effective if adhered to strictly.
