Our expert says:
Metabolic syndrome is a group of problems that one often inherits - it is characterized by high blood pressure, insulin resistance, increased uric acid levels, high cholesterol and being overweight.
The treatment for this is to eat a low fat, low sugar diet with mostly vegetables and low fat protein like chicken, turkey and fish, cutting down a lot on starches and red meat, and to do aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes daily (like jogging, swimming, cycling). Metformin is used successfully in some patients.
