Blood Sugar Imbalance
What it is:
“Metabolic Syndrome” or “Syndrome X” is a condition characterized by insulin resistance (and leptin resistance) which can lead to abnormally high lipid and cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, abnormally high blood sugar and increased blood clotting tendencies. These conditions can be an indication of impending heart disease.
Blood sugar imbalance is a problem with improper insulin and leptin signaling.
How to treat:
Proper evaluation of bloodwork and a full cardiometabolic workup is of utmost importance.
