Papillomas and Tumors of the Cornea: Causes and Detection
Papillomas and tumors of the cornea can be detected by visual examination. As individuals age, the number and size of these growths gradually increase.
The Importance of Consulting an Endocrinologist
Medical professionals strongly advise against ignoring these tumors and recommend consulting an endocrinologist. Dr. Sergey Agapkin emphasizes that these skin tumors, particularly papillary ones, are highly sensitive to insulin.
The Prevalence of High Insulin Levels
According to Dr. Agapkin, a high level of insulin in the blood is common among adults, with 40 percent of them affected. Surprisingly, their glucose levels remain normal, leading to the stimulation of neuroplasticity processes and the growth of new tissues in the body.
Dr. Agapkin suggests that doctors usually prescribe a set of tests to determine the following:
- Glucose level
- Insulin + insulin resistance index HOMA and the relationship between glucose and insulin CARO
- Glycosylated hemoglobin test
- C-peptide (binding peptide) test
Lifestyle Changes and Carbohydrate Metabolism
Even if your glucose levels appear normal, it is important to limit your intake of simple carbohydrates and make lifestyle changes. Dr. Agapkin explains that papillomas and other growths can disappear or decrease in number and size when carbohydrate metabolism is normalized.
