Metabolic Syndrome

Check out this video where I discuss Metabolic Syndrome, also known as Syndrome X. This is a major cause of ill health in America as 60 million are affected. This pre diabetes disease is also tied to weight gain, hypertension, atherosclerosis, fatty liver disease, systemic inflammation & kidney damage.

The primary cause of Metabolic Syndrome is poor diet, especially excessive consumption of refined carbohydrates that rapidly covert to blood sugar. Other contributing factors include:

  • Stress
  • Lack of exercise
  • Vitamin & mineral deficiencies

Over time, the body looses its ability to normally metabolize carbohydrates, thus more and more insulin is required to do the same work. This phenomenon is called insulin resistance.

If you or someone you know is struggling with any of the symptoms discussed in the video and would like to set up an appointment for a case review and comprehensive testing call the office today at (480) 988-6269.
