Insulin Resistance from the Ground Up with Ivor Cummins

Carl Franklin and Richard Morris talk to Ivor Cummins about his work with Hungarian Biologist Gabor Erdosi based on research that paints a more detailed picture of how insulin resistance happens. It turns out that adipose tissue (fat cells) have a much bigger role to play in metabolic dysfunction than previously thought. This is a fascinating discussion.

Ivor Cummins
Ivor Cummins is a Chemical Engineer who spent 25 years in Engineering Lead and Engineering Manager positions. He has worked in the Medical Device, Special Purpose Equipment and Electronic Component industries, always gravitating towards the most complex interactions where the Physics comes alive. His specialty throughout has been leadership in Complex Problem Solving Methodology (Comparative Analysis, Mechanistic Analysis and Experimental/Statistical Inference) - the ultimate destination was always Root Cause Resolution in the minimum timeframe. Following less-than-ideal blood test results he went back to his Biochemical Engineering roots and intensively studied the mechanistic physics and primary drivers of Dyslipidemia, elevated GGT and Serum Ferritin. Ivor has analysed several hundred related papers and studies carried out over the past 5 decades, and a few prior to this period. He found the value of the technical expertise gained during his career to be of paramount, indeed crucial importance in this odyssey, realizing that to be successful in determining root cause and solution in this complex arena, required far more than a general medical background.
