Re: Metabolic Syndrome

metabolic syndrome is indicative that if actions are not taken to improve your diet that you are at higher risk of developing type II diabetes. I recently had blood work done and my glucose was normal but my insulin was twice what the high point of the reference range was. I also had a triglyceride level of right around 300. I was told that I was developing insulin resistance and if a change in my diet did not occur I may develop type II diabetes.
