Overcoming Metabolic Syndrome

By Dr. Scott Isaacs and Dr. Fred Vagnini

Twenty-seven Percent of Americans Have Metabolic Syndrome
It’s now estimated that 55 million Americans have metabolic syndrome; however, if you’re like most Americans, you may not have ever heard of the syndrome much less understand how it increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. Metabolic syndrome actually is a cluster of disorders, all of which are affected by both genetics and lifestyle. If you have three or more of the following, you considered as having metabolic syndrome:
·        A waistline of 40 inches or more for men and 35 inches or more for women
·        High triglyceride levels
·        High blood pressure
·        Elevated fasting blood  sugar levels
·        Low HDL cholesterol levels (the good cholesterol)

There are no specific symptoms of metabolic syndrome, but it takes a toll on health. People with metabolic syndrome are 3.5 times more likely to die of a heart-related ailment and 5 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

The good news is that you can overcome this deadly syndrome. The authors of Overcoming Metabolic Syndrome, an endocrinologist and a cardiovascular surgeon, have treated thousands of patients; they know how to cut through the confusion and give you’re the basics about how you can restore your health.
Among the questions they answer:
·        How do I know if I have metabolic syndrome?
·        What is insulin resistance? Why is it a critical issue?
·        Why does insulin resistance make it so hard to lose weight?
·        What is the role of exercise, diet, and nutrition?
·        Which medications are used to treat the syndrome?
