While doing individual consulting with a person moving to the Fat-Burning Machine® diet, I recommended she visit her doctor for a checkup, bloodwork and a medication update. I also gave her a suggested list of questions to ask the doctor.
One of the results of the checkup was the doctor noted that she had more than 10 skin tags on her body – an indication of insulin resistance. The doctor recommended she make immediate changes to her diet, directly in line with Fat-Burning Machine guidelines.
Skin tags are benign growths of skin, often characterized by a thin stalk called a peduncle. They are found anywhere on the body, though commonly found around the neck, armpits, groin, thighs, eyelids and under breasts. They can vary in size and color.
If you, or someone you love, have a number of skin tags have a discussion with your doctor to determine if they indicate insulin resistance or other metabolic problems. It doesn’t hurt to be checked by a medical professional – some skin growths are harmless, while others require attention.
