Weight loss can also decrease insulin resistance, which means your pancreas won’t need to work as hard to produce insulin and less insulin will be needed to control blood glucose. Besides improving blood sugar control, losing as little as 10 – 15 pounds can improve blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, improve blood pressure, and help you to live longer with a better quality of life.
