    CHARLOTTE, NC, December 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- JC Med, LLC Founder Wenhong Cao, MD, who is also a research associate professor in nutrition with the UNC Chapel Hill Nutrition Research Institute at the NC Research Campus, has spent his career researching obesity and diabetes. With that knowledge, he has developed a dietary supplement to prevent insulin resistance that he is manufacturing at the NC Research Campus.

The product is being distributed in China initially through Shanghai Ideal Biotechnology, LLC. The profits from the supplements will fund the continued development of a first-of-its-kind, in-home test for insulin resistance.

Insulin resistance or hyperglycemia is a condition where the body does not use the hormone insulin efficiently. As part of digestion, insulin is released from the pancreas to break down carbohydrates and fats in foods and convert them to glucose. Insulin also assists cells in the absorption of glucose, which is an energy source. When the human body can no longer produce enough or absorb it efficiently, insulin resistance can result. For many, insulin resistance is a precursor to diabetes and a factor in the development of diseases like Alzheimer's, fatty liver and other metabolic disorders.

"No one is treating insulin resistance," Cao said. "Insulin resistance is evident up to 15 years before progressing to diabetes or any other disease. So there is a large window of time to make dietary changes, increase exercise or take supplements or some type of medication."
