Just a technicality, but I think you mean "insulin resistant." Insulin sensitivity is actually a GOOD thing. It means that the insulin in your body is doing its job. Some oral antidiabetic drugs are called "insulin sensitizers" because they increase insulin sensitivity. Insulin resistance, on the other hand, is associated with metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
