SEATTLE, WA --(Marketwired - November 25, 2016) - Millions of Americans are overweight or obese, facing health problems like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome (MetS). MetS, in particular, refers to a cluster of risk factors that raise the chances of heart disease and other health issues like diabetes and stroke. It involves specific signs ranging from elevated triglycerides (and poor lipid balance in general), elevated blood pressure, elevated fasting glucose and an excess of body fat. An individual with three or more of the following metabolic risk factors may be diagnosed with MetS:
- Large waistline with excess fat in the stomach area
- High levels of triglyceride (a type of fat found in blood) or taking medication to treat high triglyceride levels
- Low levels of HDL cholesterol (known as the "good" kind of cholesterol) or taking medication to treat low HDL cholesterol levels
- High blood pressure
- High fasting blood sugar or taking medication to treat high blood sugar
Generally, the anti-inflammatory diet is recommended for individuals with MetS as a way to promote general health, reduce inflammation and maximize weight loss. According to a recent study, however, the cardio-protective effects of the anti-inflammatory diet are negated in people with existing MetS conditions. As Diet Doc's resident medical expert, Dr. Rao, hypothesizes: "For people with MetS, the anti-inflammatory diet cannot sufficiently decrease cardiovascular inflammation."
Unlike diets simply focused on targeting MetS through inflammation reduction, Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, offers doctor-designed programs that address MetS through diet modifications designed to improve lipid balance, fasting glucose, blood pressure and waist to hip ratio. With a more hands-on, multi-directional approach, Diet Doc is able to maximize long-term health benefits while reducing risk factors upfront.
