Metabolic Syndrome Treatments in Greater Asheville
Metabolic syndrome consists of risk factors that can raise your risk for heart disease, stroke, early cognitive decline, and diabetes.
The main risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome include abdominal obesity, also known as an “apple shaped body”; elevated triglyceride levels on your cholesterol tests; low “good” HDL cholesterol levels; elevated fasting blood sugar levels; and high blood pressure.
Metabolic syndrome can be caused by a number of influences, from lifestyle to hormone abnormalities and chemicals in the environment.
