I agree with everything that Russell said about metabolic syndrome being completely reversible. Here is a talk by a heart surgeon who totally changed his view on how to do it. I made it my blog for today because everyone needs to know:

Please listen to the whole thing, no matter how much the information given may surprise you at first. We have been misled for too long.
A lot of this comes down to this:
Carbohydrate consumption increases insulin levels, insulin levels increase inflammation, inflammation causes heart disease (and a ton of other modern diseases).

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

I had everything on this list. A 52" waist, triglycerides over 300, HDL of 22, BP averaging 170/110, and a fasting blood sugar averaging 160-200.

Of course at this point I found out I had CHF ( no plaque ), was diabetic, and the raisin sized growth near my right eye was a malignant cancerous growth.

Multiple heart caths over the last decade show no plaque still, but my heart is pumping 3X stronger, and all 5 of these measures have improved a lot. I lost 138 lbs so far, got the growth removed, and no more skin cancer. I started a low carb diet 3.5 years ago to lose all this weight. My waist is now down to 34-36 ", My triglycerides in the 130,s, my HDL is up to 39, and climbing, my last BP was 95/58, and my fasting blood sugar is about 100, and I am off all diabetes, and cholesterol meds.

I believe metabolic syndrome is diet related, and can be changed with limited carbs, as well as healthier carbs. At the very least diabetes could be made rare, and by losing weight, cancer, and heart disease wouldn't be as common.

It is amazing that it took so long to see a link. I think all of these stem from obesity, and it seems obvious to me.. reduce obesity, and reduce the prevalence of these diseases. The obesity epidemic started in the 70's when we upped the carb intake, and cut the fat. Even worse, to make it taste better we added salt, and sugar. Plus, HFCS was invented in 1966.

By cutting carbs, and eating healthier ones, with an uptick in fat %, you will find out you can control your cravings, and sticking to the correct number of calories will help you lose weight. A healthy weight will lead to most of the problems being avoided, or improved , if you already have them.

Wow, what a great article. I guess I had better get busy working on some of those symptoms. Thank you so much for posting this!

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.
