Insulin resistance. Metabolic syndrome is very preventable. Excessive sugar and carbohydrate intake cause high blood sugar levels, which then make your Insulin levels rise.

Eventually you will have full blown diabetes, heart disease and htn.

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of abnormalities: central obesity, hypertension, low hdl, high triglycerides, and some disorder of glucose (diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance).

The most important treatment is weight loss/exercise, and treament of the bp, lipids, glucose.
