What is insulin resistance

It is said that in diabetes cells become insulin resistant. Still we target to deliver more insulin to cells – if cells have become insulin resistant, then it is counter productive to deliver more insulin to cells.

Second if insulin is delivered in blood directly it brings about a change in blood sugar levels immediately.

But when we deliver the insulin under the skin it spreads slowly through intricate network of veins and bring change in blood glucose swiftly.

Why do we measure blood glucose when we need to supplement insulin in the body. We can measure insulin shortage in blood and supplement insulin based on those readings.

I doubt whether any study has been done to check the effectiveness of insulin delivery in the blood.
