Do You Suffer From Metabolic Syndrome?

What is Metabolic Syndrome?


Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of health risk factors that occur together in an individual. The diagnosis of Metabolic Syndrome by a health care practitioner would include evidence of at least three of the following risk factors:

  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • Excess abdominal fat
  • Increased LDL "bad" cholesterol
  • Decreased HDL "good" cholesterol

Metabolic Syndrome is a relatively common phenomenon among Americans largely due to improper diet and lack of adequate exercise. It is implicated in the development of cardiovascular disease and Type 2 Diabetes, but it can be reversed!
