In the following podcast, Dr. Alex Jimenez, a chiropractor in El Paso, TX, and Dr. Mario Ruja, a chiropractor in El Paso, TX, discusses what metabolic syndrome is in more depth. Metabolic syndrome is a collection of conditions that can ultimately increase the risk of developing a variety of other health issues, including diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), a person may be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome if they have at least three of the following five risk factors, including abdominal obesity of more than 40 inches in men and more than 35 inches in women, fasting blood glucose levels of 100 mg/dL or above, blood pressure of 130/85 mm/Hg or above, blood triglycerides levels of 150 mg/dL or higher, and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels of 40 mg/dL or less for men and 50 mg/dL or less for women. Having three or more of these risk factors can ultimately increase the risk of developing a variety of health issues, including diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Dr. Alex Jimenez and Dr. Mario Ruja discuss in more detail how eating a lot of carbohydrates and sugar are ultimately associated with the risk factors of metabolic syndrome. – Podcast Insight
