At present, obesity is recognized as one of the key problems of modern medicine, which requires significant financial costs. As a result of excessive accumulation of adipose tissue, insulin resistance (IR) and compensatory hyperinsulinemia occur. IR is one of the important pathogenetic factors of development of such diseases as type 2 diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, arterial hypertension, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and many others. Improvement of sensitivity to insulin will provide more effective treatment of these diseases and prevention of possible complications. This review article considers modern possibilities of correcting IR.
