Metabolic Syndrome sometimes called the ‘Fearsome Five’ although not as famous as heart disease, cancer or diabetes it is a killer and a damn right huge reduction in your capacity!
You are likely to hear more about this cluster as time continues because some 47 million Americans have Metabolic Syndrome. The worse thing is that of those millions who have this cluster many do not know they have it. This causes major problems as it creeps up its nasty head on you and incapacitates. It literally doubles your risk of having a stroke or dying from heart disease.
In fact new research suggests the syndrome also causes cognitive decline, liver disease and kidney disease – nasty stuff. In men the syndrome doubles the risk of prostate cancer.
The good news is you can not only prevent this syndrome but you can actually reverse it with the right action plan. It is in-fact ESSENTIAL that you do something about it now if you want to live to 85 and beyond in good health! If you are in your 40’s, 50’s or 60’s start doing something to prevent or reverse it TODAY!
So what is Metabolic Syndrome?
Well it is a cluster of 5 of the most ferocious cardiovascular risk factors. Each one poses danger to your health but when several of these are present at the same time they create havoc and will definitely reduce your quality of life over time.
A person is diagnosed with the syndrome when they have just 3 of the 5 health conditions. Having more or all of them is a disastrous situation for a person wishing to remain in good health and able to function properly. Now I am going to cover the 5 below and if you find you have a couple of these, I urge you to do something about it now if anti aging is your goal.
Here is what you have to watch out for:
- Abdominal obesity Waist circumference of 40 inches or more (35 inches or more for women)
- Fasting triglyceride levels 150 mg/dL or higher
- HDL cholesterol levels Below 40 mg/dL HDL (below 50 mg/dL for women)
- Blood pressure 130/85 mmHg or higher
- Fasting blood sugar 110 mg/dL or higher
If you don’t know if you have any of these 5, then it is even more important that you go and find out fast! But don’t panic, knowing your current condition is half the battle, the other half I can show you what to do about long before you result to medication. Your doctor will probably want to prescribe medication, but if you can discuss first trying to combat it naturally and get your doctor on your side you can take some positive action that will potentially help avoid the need for drugs and get your condition vastly improved.
