Type 2 diabetes: The minor growths on skin that could signal insulin resistance

The first stage in the development of type 2 diabetes is prediabetes, which is when the blood sugar levels are above normal range, but not yet high enough to qualify as type 2 diabetes.

It is believed, however, that the long-term damage of diabetes to other vital organs, including the heart, may already be starting at the step.

The risk factors that increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes also increase the risk for prediabetes, this includes high blood pressure, family history o diabetes, and lack of physical fitness.

Doctor Karra noted: “Skin tags develop when the body produces extra cells in the skin’s top layers. Skin tags tend to affect patients with insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, as insulin is a growth-stimulating hormone.
