Metabolic Syndrome for Men
A diagnosis of metabolic syndrome is made when a person has three or more of the following risk factors, as noted by the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute:
Alone, each of these risk factors carries its own set of problems. In combination, they can double your risk of blood vessel and heart disease - precursors to heart attacks and strokes - and multiply the risk of diabetes by five.
In addition, DHEA can help combat auto-immune disorders, obesity, senile dementia, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome and depression.
What can you do about it? First, be proactive to lower your risk. Eat a healthy diet, exercise and ask your doctor about supplements. And be sure to have your hormone levels checked since hormone imbalance can play a key role in your risk for metabolic syndrome. Taking a stand against Syndrome X today with your own combination of fitness, nutrition and bioidentical hormone therapy not only can delay the onset of serious health issues, but also halt the development of serious disease in the future.
