In brief: Correct the problem!
Insulin resistance is the cause of metabolic sydrome.
Sure you can treat hbp, bad lipid profiles, and later type-2 diabeters with good drugs.But you reverse Insulin resistance with three easy steps: 1. Exercise 2. Lose weight on the middle. 3. Eat a low glycemic index diet, known in various forms, as atkin's, paleolithic, and mediterranean. Finally, whatever you get for probs, take metformin.
