Acupuncture is effective in treating insulin resistance

Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas. Insulin resistance (IR) is a condition in which the body’s cells become resistant to the effects of insulin. In this condition, response to a normal amount of insulin is reduced; more insulin is needed to obtain the same degree of response. As a result, pancreas tends to produce more insulin until it can no longer to do so and then blood sugar level increases. Insulin resistance is a risk factor for developing diabetes and heart disease. Insulin resistance may be a part of the metabolic syndrome, for instance, patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) has high insulin resistance. Liang and Koya analysed current available research data to study if acupuncture is effective for treatment of insulin resistance. They analysed 234 English publications listed on the PubMed database between 1979 and 2009 on the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment for IR. They found that these publications provided clinical evidence, in support of the effectiveness of acupuncture in IR. Numerous experimental studies have shown that acupuncture can correct various metabolic disorders, such as hyperglycemia, overweight, inflammation etc. and alter sympathetic nervous system activities and insulin signal defect. Acupuncture potentially improves insulin sensitivity.
