METABOLIC syndrome is a leading cause of heart disease and cancer, the two major causes of death in western society, says South Perth Naturopathic and Herbal Clinic naturopath Beverley Bertram.
“Metabolic syndrome greatly increases the risk of heart attack and stroke and if untreated, often leads to Type 2 diabetes,” she said.
“Risk factors include high blood pressure, diabetes or pre-diabetes, high triglycerides, low HDL (good cholesterol) and abdominal obesity.”
Beverley said causes include lack of exercise, stress and poor diet.
