1 in 3 adults in the US meet the indicators for Metabolic Syndrome or Prediabetes. Metabolic Syndrome is not a disease by itself. It is however, a combination of risk factors that help predict and precede the onset of diabetes and heart disease. Prevention is much cheaper than treatment in the long run. Sadly, most people are not even aware they are at risk or already have Metabolic Syndrome. Often they are already insulin-resistant and probably Prediabetic. You probably already know someone affected right now!
More than 90,000 Americans have Metabolic Syndrome. It’s now considered a hidden epidemic. If you are over the age of 50, your chances increase to one in 2 or 50% being affected by this condition. Anyone who already has Metabolic Syndrome or Prediabetes is 5 times more likely to develop Diabetes.
