Hyperinsulinemia is a medical condition which is characterized by increased amount of insulin in blood. The primary cause of the disease is insulin resistance, which can also result in the development of type 2 diabetes. Insulinoma and nesidioblastosis are some other causes of hyperinsulinemia. Major symptoms of the disease are intense hunger, concentration difficulties, fatigue and obesity. People who have higher triglyceride and uric acid level, obesity, type 2 diabetes and hypertension are at a higher risk of developing hyperinsulinemia.
