What is metabolic syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome is a combination of metabolic conditions such as high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, and insulin resistance that increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Most often, metabolic syndrome is associated with obesity. Many doctors prescribe medication to treat symptoms, but never fully resolve them. Because metabolic syndrome can have different causes, it's important to determine the cause in order to formulate the best treatment plan. At Parsley Health, we do just that.
