When insulin is not absorbed, it means there is resistance to its action, and then glucose levels remain high.

This results in the body needing greater amounts of insulin to reduce glycemic levels, for the pancreas may gradually slow down entering a pre-diabetic condition and then stop until type 2 diabetes sets in.
