The body's decreasing ability to respond to and use the insulin it produces. As a result, excess glucose builds up in the blood (hyperglycemia). Insulin resistance increases the risk of developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Use of certain antiretroviral (ARV) drugs may cause insulin resistance.
