In brief: Metabolic syndrome

I am not sure why you are on a calcium channel blocker, but ace inhibitors are first line in diabetes with hypertension.
Metabolic syndrome is a problem of obesity, high bp, high blood lipids and poor sugar control. The best approach to this is to eliminate refined foods from the diet. Eat a quart of vegetables daily. Omega 3 oils, magnesium, Alpha lipoic acid and aerobics are very helpful.
