We have so many 'syndromes' now a days, that at times
it can be pretty confusing! Metabolic Syndrome isn't a disease, it's actually several problems that occur with
your metabolism and all at the same time...
You are overweight and have excess body fat mainly
around the waist; you also have high levels of fat, like high cholesterol, high triglycerides, or low levels of the 'good' cholesterol (HDL); high blood pressure; along with high amounts of sugar in your blood (resistance to insulin).
The more of these that you have - the greater health risks that you have. The more apt you are to develop heart disease, stroke or diabetes.
So while we've heard of this syndrome before...here it is in black and white for you to actually look at and see - do you have it?
