Thanks to Leonard, most everyone here is aware of the association between MS and diabetes. One aspect of diabetes we would still need to explain is insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance is a fundamental aspect of type 2 diabetes. When cells become resistant to insulin, the pancreas responds by producing more insulin. If the pancreas can't produce enough insulin, or the resistance goes up, then blood sugar levels will rise and diabetes will result. We have previously discussed the fact that insulin is made from amino acids that come from the break down of dietary proteins. If even one amino acid is missing, the body will not be able to produce insulin. Therefore, the inability to properly digest proteins would lead to a lack of insulin. The inability to digest proteins would also lead to a lack of vitamin B12, which has been discovered in diabetes. The lack of vitamin B12 would then lead to elevated levels of homocysteine. And finally, homocysteine will lead to insulin resistance, as the following study shows.
