Abstract:

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? A Clear and Simple Guide to Better Health!
