Metabolic Syndrome effects 1 in 4 people in the UK. To help identify if you have signs of heading in that direction try my new metabolic check

Are You At Risk? Metabolic syndrome, where your body starts to shift into an unhealthy state, affects approximately one in four people in Britain. It’s the core underlying shift that leads to weight gain, especially around the middle, and drives diabetes, most heart disease, polycystic ovaries and even breast cancer. This shift in your body’s biology means your whole system is ‘heating up’, developing inflammation, all of which paves the way for a short and unhealthy life ahead. Metabolic syndrome is diagnosed when a person has three of more of the following: raised blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides (blood fats), low HDL cholesterol and increased waist circumference. But even before a person has diagnosable metabolic syndrome there are many signs that they are likely to be heading in that direction. For this reason we have created the Metabolic Check questionnaire to see if the early warning signs of what I call ‘internal global warming’ apply to you. By the taking the free online Metabolic Check you get a measure of where you are at on the scale of health, and whether the beginnings of a shift’s in your body’s metabolism might be behind your health issues such as weight, energy and mood. The reason why it’s good to know now is that there is something you can do about it that hinges around eating and living in a way that keeps your blood sugar level even.
