Hyperinsulinemia is a metabolic condition that occurs mainly in people with increased body weight, which implies an increased body mass index (BMI) and the consequences it can have in long term. Many people suffer from hyperinsulinemia but do not know it, as they ignore their symptoms which are polycystic ovaries, hair loss, difficulty having children, sparse menstruation, etc. Hyperinsulinemia is a metabolic condition due to the fact that the body constantly produces an increased to excessive amount of insulin regardless of the amount of glucose present in the blood. Hyperinsulinemia should not be confused with and directly linked to diabetes, as type 2 diabetes may occur after several years of untreated hyperinsulinemia due to the natural fatigue of the pancreas due to its excessive and uninterrupted production of insulin. Usually people who show symptoms of hyperinsulinemia are predisposed as it can be diagnosed in newborns, it has arisen from other metabolic diseases such as isletoblastoma, liver disease, etc. It can also result from the administration of drugs such as contraceptives where after their cessation the body has returned to normal or unfortunately hyperinsulinemia may remain.
