  • Metabolic Syndrome describes increased blood pressure, a high blood sugar level, central obesity and abnormal cholesterol levels. These together increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. These could be claimed to be simply downstream symptoms which result from poor diet, lifestyle and environmental toxins and interact with our unique genetic susceptibilities. These dietary and lifestyle factors can lead to metabolic syndrome because they create a condition known as insulin resistance. This online module will discuss the underlying biochemistry of metabolic syndrome and provide practical evidence-based solutions though diet, nutrition, gut health and case history discussion to enable immediate application in clinical practice.
