What Exactly Is Metabolic Syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome is a collection of chronic conditions that – if left unaddressed – may further impact your health. Experiencing excess body fat around the abdomen, high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, and high HDL cholesterol levels may indicate you could be at risk of disease, but there are no direct symptoms associated with this collection of conditions.
Most cases of metabolic syndrome are caused by the cumulative impact of our western culture. Eating out, working in a cubicle, high stress and no sleep eventually put you at the tipping point of chronic disease and related symptoms. Although prevention is the ideal, most of us just soldier through everyday life until the symptoms and prescriptions get our attention. We have some good news! All of this can be reversed!
Factors That May Impact Metabolic Syndrome Conditions
There is no singular root cause of the metabolic syndrome, but there are several lifestyle factors that may impact this aspect of your health, such as:
• Excess abdominal weight
• Family culture
• Inactive lifestyle with or without (!) regular exercise
• Sleep apnea or other sleep disorders
• Nutritional choices
Do I have Metabolic Syndrome?
The conventional medicine criteria for this are very specific. If you meet three or more of the following, you can be diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome:
• Elevated waist circumference (Men > 40 inches and Women > 35 inches)
• Elevated triglycerides > 150
• HDL (Men < 40 and Women < 50)
• High blood pressure > 130/85
• High fasting blood glucose > 100
There are also “pre-indicators” that you are on the path towards metabolic syndrome. The “cure” for metabolic syndrome does not include medications that address these abnormalities! By looking at your underlying causes and imbalances, we can reverse metabolic syndrome with an actionable personalized treatment plan.
