First off, hi. I'm sortof new here. Second off, this isn't
so much an idea as a hypothesis...I was looking for
somewhere to bounce this around, and this seemed like
a good place...
Recent literature has associated insulin resistance in
muscle cells with interference of the insulin signaling
pathway by excess intramyocellular triglyceride (imcTG)
and fatty acid content, and the correlation between
imcTG and MIR is now well established; it has been
further postulated that imcTG is in fact, a source of
MIR, as well as an indicator.
In individuals exhibiting MIR, glucose is taken to the
liver, where it is then converted to fatty acids, rather
than being taken to the insulin-resistant muscle cells for
metabolism. If this is the case, I believe it is a
possibility that these fatty acids could somehow end up
in the the muscle cells, and thereby contribute to further
reduction of insulin sensitivity.* In this way, MIR would
itself contribute to its own progression.
*Edited to be a statement. But now it sounds like I think
I know what I'm talking about...

||I'm not sure that makes sense grammatically... you're saying that MIR (which I assume means muscular insulin resistance or something like that) is a bad thing, but you want it to contribute to its progression ?

insulin resistance, my apologies for not clarifying
that acronym earlier. And I don't "want" MIR to
contribute to its own progression, it's merely a
