Several ways!: A cluster of diseases in the making!however...Metabolic syndrome was called syndrome x: four facets-1. Torso obesity, 2.High blood pressure, 3.Poor cholesterol to HDL ratio, and 4.Tendency toward type 2 diabetes. The cause is Insulin resistance, and all treatments should focus on the cause. Metformin and low carbohydrate diets are indicated for most people with the problem of metabolic syndrome.

Low carb diet: Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will raise your sugar levels and then your Insulin levels. The fats in the meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours without raising insulin.
