From what you can do, to how you feel, to what it costs to treat your conditions, your health matters. Your version of good health is a vision you carry within you. In my experience, there is a path for every person to improve their health and quality of life. Ready to learn more?
What is metabolic syndrome?
Maybe you’re aware of the term "metabolic syndrome", and maybe not. It has also been called Syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, and dysmetabolic syndrome. It hasn’t quite gone viral online but maybe it should. Nearly a third of women in the US have it, and the occurrence increases with age. More than half of women 60 years or older have metabolic syndrome.
Metabolic syndrome is defined as having at least 3 of the following risk factors:
- Abdominal obesity
- High triglyceride levels
- Low HDL (High-Density Lipoproteins --“good” cholesterol)
- High blood pressure (greater than 130/85 mmHg)
- High blood sugar levels (insulin resistance)
Even if the values are only moderately raised, the chances of developing chronic health problems increase with each risk factor present.
One woman’s experience may be very different from the next woman’s experience with metabolic syndrome.
There are other conditions that commonly occur in individuals with metabolic syndrome including: diabetes, heart disease, stroke, anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation, sleep apnea, fatty liver disease, cancer, food allergies, chronic inflammation, thyroid issues, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), and dysbiosis (an imbalance of the bacteria) in the gastrointestinal tract.
Living with metabolic syndrome and its associated conditions can mean a major loss in quality of life. The level of participation in the activities you love and the cost of health expenses in the short and long-term may be affected.
So now what?
Close your eyes and take a deep breath in and out. That’s always a good place to start! All of this is overwhelming. However I believe you will influence your own recovery with education and the choices you make. The repeated, simple and small decisions that benefit you in healing naturally is where your power is and I invite you to tap into that power.
Wherever you are on your path, I invite you to join us for the next 12-week online program to safely reverse metabolic syndrome. My MetaSyn WomanTM program is focused on you as a whole person to help you treat the causes of metabolic syndrome and enjoy life along the way. You will interact with me and other members using a private Facebook group that includes a weekly Facebook Live video and recording. You are able to engage in the group as you need to remain focused, inspired and motivated each day.
There is also a self-study component of the program with content broken down into digestible chunks, with manageable action steps for each week to integrate into your life. This knowledge will empower you to make self-care a priority. The result will be more energy to support healthy habits for shopping, cooking, eating, stress management, mindfulness, movement (some call it exercise), elimination, rest, and more.
