What is Metabolic Syndrome? | Bon Vie Weight Loss Portland / Santa Monica
What is metabolic syndrome? Hi, I'm Sharon from Bon Vie Weight Loss and Nutritional Wellness. Today I'm speaking about metabolic syndrome, also known as Syndrome X which describes a diagnosis of two or more of these symptoms. 1. Obesity, particularly around the midsection. 2. Blood sugar issues, such as diabetes and pre-diabetes. 3. High cholesterol.
4. High blood pressure. Now what causes metabolic syndrome? According to Dr. Tran, the founder of the Ideal Protein Method which we utilize at Bon Vie, the cause of most weight issues in modern society is insulin dysfunction. Insulin dysfunction happens mostly because in the typical North American diet, we grossly over-consume saturated fats and carbohydrates like bread, cereal, muffins, corn syrup, cakes, pastries, pasta, pizza, rice, you get the picture. This daily carbohydrate overload causes the pancreas to produce an over-abundance of insulin, causing a chronic tug-of-war between insulin and blood sugar levels. Insulin's primary function is to regulate blood sugar level and it is also the hormone that facilitates the transport of fat triglycerides into fat cells. An over-abundance of insulin leads to weight gain, staying overweight, and the symptoms metabolic syndrome.
