I have metabolic syndrome. Is treatment of the individual symptoms the best that medicine can offer?

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.
