Pictures of Acanthosis Nigricans
In the early stages of insulin resistance, your blood work might look completely normal as the body usually compensates well to insulin resistance by over producing insulin!
However, this over production of insulin leads to a lot of weight gain in the belly and upper part of the body and explains those darker or thicker lines in the neck called Acanthosis Nigricans!
It might also cause cravings for certain sugary or salty foods, overeating and can explain why you might be gaining weight!
