Treatment Process

Initial consultation
During the initial consultation, the supervisor will survey your health, eating and lifestyle habits to understand your needs. Together we set realistic and achievable goals and work together so that you reach them.

Initial consultation

After the first consultation, we plan an individual follow-up plan. Many clients choose a health package, including 1 initial consultation and 4 or 8 follow-up hours. We are available by phone or email for any questions. During follow-up sessions, we assess your progress and make necessary adjustments to your plan, and provide further guidance. The weight is measured with a Tanita scale, and the follow-up calls last 15 or 30 minutes, as needed.

Frequently asked questions about Insulin Resistance

1. What is insulin resistance and how does it affect my health?

Insulin resistance is a condition in which the body's cells become less receptive to the hormone insulin, which is responsible for regulating blood sugar levels. This can lead to a number of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease.

2. What are the most common symptoms and risk factors associated with insulin resistance?

The common symptoms of insulin resistance include fatigue, frequent hunger, increased thirst and urination, and blurred vision. Risk factors for insulin resistance include obesity, physical inactivity, a family history of type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure or cholesterol levels.

3. Can insulin resistance be reversed and what are the primary treatment options available?

Insulin resistance can often be reversed through lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet, regular exercise and weight loss. In some cases, medications may also be prescribed by your doctor to help manage blood sugar levels and increase inulin sensitivity in cells.

4. How can an individual diet plan help me manage insulin resistance effectively?

An individualized diet plan can help you manage insulin resistance by identifying foods that can cause spikes in blood sugar levels and recommending a balanced diet that can help regulate blood sugar levels and weight loss. This can help reduce and reverse insulin resistance and improve overall health and well-being.

5. What role does physical activity play in controlling insulin resistance, and what types of exercises are recommended?

Regular physical activity can help control insulin resistance by increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin and improving blood sugar regulation. Both aerobic exercises, such as brisk walking, cycling and swimming, and strength training exercises, such as weight lifting, are recommended to improve insulin resistance.

6. How do behavioral changes help to improve insulin resistance management?

Such as quitting smoking, weight loss, limiting alcohol consumption and managing stress can help improve insulin resistance management. These changes can help reduce inflammation, improve blood sugar regulation, and promote overall health and well-being.

7. What support and resources can I expect from Vektklinikken?

At Vektklinikken, you can expect continuous support and resources such as regular follow-up appointments, training material on handling insulin resistance and referrals to other healthcare professionals as needed. This can help you stay on track with insulin resistance treatment and improve your overall health outcomes.

8. How often should I attend follow-up appointments, and what will be assessed during these sessions?

The frequency of follow-up appointments for insulin resistance will depend on your individual needs and treatment plan, but they are usually recommended every three to six months. During these appointments, the nurse will assess blood sugar levels, weight, blood pressure and general health to monitor progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

9. Can the clinic's approach to insulin resistance treatment help prevent or manage type 2 diabetes and other related health conditions?

Yes, the clinic's approach to insulin resistance treatment can help prevent or manage type 2 diabetes and other related health conditions. By improving insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control through lifestyle changes and medication, individuals can reduce their risk of developing complications related to insulin resistance.
