What is Metabolic syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes (To name but 3!) These conditions include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. The condition is also known by many other names including Syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, and dysmetabolic syndrome.
What causes Metabolic Syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome is often associated with being overweight or obese, and a lack of physical activity. But the cause is a diet high in sugar, carbs and processed foods which spike your sugars leading to permanently raised insulin levels. Blood sugar levels are mainly controlled by the hormone insulin. If you have insulin resistance, too much glucose can build up in your blood stream. Insulin resistance is a key feature of type2 diabetes.
But, you can prevent or reverse metabolic syndrome by making some lifestyles changes and monitoring your daily routine and habits.
ProLongevity helps reverse diabetes using a unique, customised 8-week treatment plan. This eliminates the root cause of the epidemic of diabetes and other serious life-limiting conditions like obesity, hypertension, heart disease, and the risk of strokes. It also helps reduce and prevent the inflammation which is an intrinsic aspect of other conditions like dementia, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), psoriasis, and tinnitus.
