Do You Have Metabollic Syndrome? If so, Pay Attention!

In a nutshell, you have metabolic syndrome if you have 3 of the following 5 signs and symptoms:  Increased waist measurement (35 inches for women, 40 inches for men), BP > 130/80, fasting blood sugar >100, triglycerides >150, and HDL <50 .="" span="" style="mso-spacerun: yes;">  If you qualify, you have a substantially increased risk for heart attacks and strokes.  Most important for treatment is weight loss with a low carb diet.  Exercise helps, and chelation might lower your risk, according to the results of the TACT study.  Moderate changes can make a big difference.
