    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:02 Insulin resistance is present in prediabetes and is a warning sign of the development of type 2 diabetes.

    00:09 The insulin receptors are impaired in insulin resistance, so the cells do not recognize insulin and are not as effective in taking this energy source into the cells.

    00:20 Glucose production increases and glucose utilization decreases.

    00:25 Nurses can facilitate slowing the progression to type 2 diabetes by facilitating patients taking the next step toward a healthier lifestyle.

    00:35 Thank you for watching our video today.
