In brief: Related Problems

Metabolic syndrome is very preventable.
Excessive sugar and carbohydrate intake cause high blood sugar levels, which then make your Insulin levels rise. Over time the chronically high Insulin levels lead to Insulin resistance and you will need to make higher and higher levels of Insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Eventually you will have full blown diabetes, heart disease and htn.
