Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome treatment Dublin - Wild Healthy

If you have high total cholesterol, high LDL, low HDL, high triglycerides, impaired glucose tolerance, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or fatty liver disease, all in a neat little bundle of three or more of the above, that is defined as metabolic syndrome; an umbrella term for the presentation of a collection of cardio-metabolic disorders that lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Metabolic syndrome responds incredibly well to a change in diet and a modulation of macronutrients and micronutrients dependent on your unique needs. Your doctor may have prescribed an array of drugs for each individual symptom; a statin for your cholesterol, a beta blocker or ace inhibitor for your hypertension, metformin for your diabetes, etc.

There are currently no licensed medications for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, an increasingly prevalent disease in Ireland and the UK, and your doctor can currently diagnose it through blood testing and scans, but not actively treat it. Lifestyle changes are the only successful treatment for NAFLD at present. Careful dietary modulation alongside your medication can work extremely well for metabolic syndrome.
