What is insulin resistance?
Is that when insulin doesn't work with your muscles? Or is that when your body doesn't produce enough insulin?

Insulin resistance is defined as higher-than-normal blood glucose levels but are not
diagnostic for diabetes. About 25% of these people will eventually develop diabetes.
This is usually a drug-induced state (glucocorticoids, sulfa's,etc). In practice,
physicians usually use metformin to treat this.

Insulin resistance is defined as an inability of insulin to fascilitate glucose uptake from the blood into the cells. It is characterized by poor insulin binding at the receptor cells, particularly skeletal muscle cells. Insulin is produced and carried to the cells, but glucose uptake is sluggish. Consequently, blood sugar remains elevated. To compensate, the pancreas initially releases more and more insulin (hyperinsulinemia). Blood glucose can be maintained within normal limits if enough insulin is produced.

Even while on AAS and GH and T3?

Too many factors involved to simply answer yes or no.

Just a question and I don't mean to be insulting, but since you don't know what insulin resistance is, do you know what GH and T3 do? Are you the one taking them? If so, i strongly suggest you do a lot of research so that you know what you are putting into your body and what you hope to get out of it.
I'm just going to assume that since you are on this board that you know how AAS work.

I'm using GH, Slin and T3. But my friends co-worker that lives not far from my house is insulin resistant. So it just came to my mind..what is that? And what would happen if someone like him were to use insulin, Gh and t3?
