Women with a condition called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are up to 11 times more likely to have metabolic syndrome than those without PCOS. The risk of metabolic syndrome increases with age. Researchers have discovered the risk of metabolic syndrome in women begins to rise around perimenopause, which seems to be related to increases in testosterone.

Symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome In Women With Hormone Imbalance. Metabolic syndrome symptoms can be tough to deal with, and may be caused by hormonal imbalance in women. Learn more about female metabolic syndrome symptoms, its causes, and how BioTE ® Medical’s method of hormone replacement therapy may be able to help relieve symptoms.

Find. The metabolic syndrome is estimated to be present in 47 million US residents with a similar age-adjusted prevalence in men (24%) and women (23%). The consideration of various metabolic risk factors as a single entity in the metabolic syndrome provides clinicians with a tool by which they can identify a population at. Metabolic syndrome occurs when a person has three or more of the following measurements: Abdominal obesity (Waist circumference of greater than 40 inches in men, and greater than 35 inches in women) Triglyceride level of 150 milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL) or greater.

Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself. Instead, it’s a group of risk factors high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unhealthy cholesterol level. developing metabolic syndrome increases as we age.

In the United States, the prevalence of metabolic. syndrome is higher in non-Hispanic white men than. Mexican-American and non-Hispanic black men. By. contrast, it is more common in Mexican American. women than non-Hispanic black or non-Hispanic. white women. Women who have a personal history of polycystic ovarian syndrome (a tendency to develop cysts on the ovaries) Heart Disease Risk.

Metabolic syndrome increases your risk for ischemic heart disease. Other risk factors, besides metabolic syndrome, also. Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk factors that include abdominal fat, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and unhealthy cholesterol levels. Treatment is focused on tackling each of these.

Menopausal women are at higher risk for metabolic syndrome. Learn the connection between menopause and metabolic syndrome and steps to take to weaken the link. Aging women experience menopause, a natural end of their menstruation cycle. Menopause is caused by declining reproductive hormones, estrogen especially.

In addition to upping your risk of diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, metabolic syndrome doubles your risk of cardiovascular disease and increases your risk of death from any cause by 1.5 times. Summary: Metabolic syndrome is a group of symptoms that increase risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and death. Symptoms include abdominal.

  • Can they just start not so much as apologize but do their job instead of standing there lying to you but people the doctors are part of it but don’t jump down their throat cuz they been lied to that’s why the doctors are usually no good because they’ve been lied to oh Jess will not take care of them because we were told to let him die we’ve told them we’ve been told to take the child before it’s born all kinds of crazy things wake up people wake up thank you

  • Do you want to lose weight without bothering yourself in anything, without diets and exercises in the gym? I advise you to read the book, which is also called “The Obesity Code”, but the author is another Christophe Lefebvre.

  • When I feel like shit. I quit eating for 48-72 hours and just drink good minerals and teas. I feel like a kid again. Do that every other month

  • I have the absolute best supplement system that I have been using there’s not only caused me to lose weight, but inches are falling off!!!

  • Two years ago my adult autistic and developmentally disabled/ cognitively impaired grandson was hospitalized for four days. The doctors could or would not give me a diagnosis, but treated him with probiotics and antibiotics..after four days they decided to send him home in diapers (which he did not need when he was admitted), and with an elevated temp. Since I had been off my psych meds for those four days (another story) I was ready to throw the drs out the third floor window. When I saw the discharge papers I found out they said he had metabolic keto-acidosis.. within two weeks of being back home I had him well enough to begin attending his day program again.

  • The part where the Shiff base undergoes an Amadori rearrangment (not decomposition) is very badly explained. And most importantly, this rearrangement does not result in formation of reactive oxygen species.

  • Did I hurt them that was the point I’m making they lied to us I hope people are reading my message the people that need to know you know they need to be human but they’re not and don’t blame your doctor because you might need them anyway just check them out to find out how honest they are if they’re not and you know it move to another doctor and if they don’t let you then talk to the people thank you

  • So 53:25, can a high protein diet with a lot of branched chain amino acids, and very little transfats, fructose or alcohol cause metabolic syndrome?

  • Thank you very much Tuesday speakers on illness of any kind first thank you for acknowledging diabetes is nothing but a medical fraud if they would have taught every Basic School grade and I mean it the acknowledgement of good health and well have a class even because that’s the only way we’re going to make the people that lie about medical health because they’ve been forced to do that you want a job you going to tell him this you want your job skill you’re going to tell him this and this way only that’s what they probably preach Tuesday Medical Board and to the world so that they can rob your pocket pocket pocket pocket pocket pocket pocket thank you

  • SUPER INTERESTIN. so this whole carnivore trend those guys will need to watch the branch chain amino acids (not too much) and fiber (are you eatin enough)… interestinnnnnn.

  • There are some good doctors that may even know but they are told don’t tell him don’t tell him don’t tell him but you know what when it comes down to it the problem is did you hear me the problem is once more the problem is the medical board they truly are Quacks why because they want money they don’t care about life they don’t even though they do save lives but they don’t fix the problem the problem is damn I’m not trying to talk about the doctors the hospitals the people that really knows the truth but you know what I hope we get another good president and I hope we keep getting them from now on and just walk in the door and say goodbye why because they’re not worthy of their job their job is to be truthful not lie to you and cause your death I know I’ve been saved a few times by heart buy clogged arteries and many children are illnesses I thank them for that though but when you get a chronic illness don’t don’t run away

  • My doctor says I have this and I’m underweight. I have a small waist line and been told my blood pressure is fine or low if anything.

  • I always wish that I could give you more thumbs down. You talk out of your a hole. Everybody please research insulin resistance. Most have Insulin resistance, it’s the basis of your illness. Fix it with your diet. Research it your self.

  • No sugar coating, forgive the pun, the straight scoop spoken by someone of knowledge, integrity, and passion. Unfortunately, I’m under exposure from the old school, big food and Pharma. With this exposure, I have a chance. Then again, I still see people smoking cigarettes?!

  • 30 lbs in 6 months, good for him, but I did 30 lbs in 2 months with KETO and no exercise. Now that I’m getting healthy I’m starting to exercise by walking. I’m also not his age, I’m 49, but diet is more important than exercise.

  • I am still insulin resistant. I have changed my life, lost 130 lbs, never had high BP, but all the rest and so did both my parents including hearts disease. I eat a modified keto, gotten rid of 5 autoimmune diseases, including stage 2 fibrosis in my NASH, which liver biopsy and ultrasound shows no more fat or fibrosis in liver. I still run 95 in fasting blood sugar, but 5.3 A1C. My mom died of NASH, so I didn’t take it lightly. Any suggestions for insulin resistance?? I have visceral fat still, I do HITT 3 hours a week in pool and run another 2 in pool. Need sleep study. Thank you for any suggestions

  • Average gp doctors are not smart enough to go this deep and differentiate between markers and causes. I’m sure it won’t be during my lifetime, but it would be nice if this became a full course study for every doctor. How is it the most prevalent issue in our country associated with death is so poorly understood?

  • I’m type one diabetic and my insulin requirements have gone up 10-15x in the past 5 years. Just thought I’d add cause i have some relation. Also I’m 5’10 and 155 lbs (muscular)

  • Basically, people take in too many carbs, this causes many, many problems. The answer is not to use the standard American diet. Ever. Low carb, high fat diet is much better. No processed foods. Look up Dr Ekberg, too. If you are really interested in changing your lifestyle, and living a long and healthy life.

  • Look on any death certificate it will state “high blood pressure” as a secondary cause. Did you know if you drop fat content in diet from 40% to 25% blood pressure (diastolic and systolic) drops 10%? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CT8K6NcAigo

  • They just found out this last year that i am in Heart, Liver Kidney and Lung Failure and Pulmonary Hypertension and my Diaphragm is paralyzed 75% along with Spedo tumor ceberi & Chiari Malformation and ex ex and i am a Diabetic which they just found that out two years ago and i am 57 now so could i have this??? there trying to figure out what caused all of this.

  • God bless GREAT Dr abumere, for his marvelous work in my life, I was diagnosed of Hiv since 2015 and I was taking my medications, I wasn’t satisfied and I needed to get the Hiv out of my blood, I searched about some possible cure for Hiv and I saw a comment about GREAT Dr abumere, how he cured Hiv with his herbal medicine, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked for solutions, he started the remedy for my health, he sent me the medicine through UPS SPEED POST. I took the medicine as prescribed by him and 3 weeks later I was cured from Hiv. GREAT Dr abumere, truly you are great. Do you need his help also? Why don’t you contact him through this Email: [email protected] gmail.com

  • He says he not a low carber or low fatter but he is over weight. He is fat??? So what he is doing is obviously not working for him. Hey doc maybe try to drop those carbs.

  • So I am confused a little. He is talking about letting those kids eat baked chips and things like that to let them get healthier. So I am very confused about that. I lost 230 pounds cutting down my carbs to 20 a day including from all veggies. If I eat about 35 carbs a day I will start having huge cravings. So I am not sure how I could eat some of the things he talked about and not gain weight.

  • I’m thin and have non alcoholic fatty liver disease and my doctor can’t tell me why, I can’t diet cause I’ll be underweight then… Dr. Lustig is right on, I’m a sugar/carb junkie. I don’t eat much but when I do it’s one of those two groups. Just cause you’re thin doesn’t mean you’re safe, I learned that the hard way.

  • There was no HFCS in 1950 or 1960 or 1970. Yet heart attacks were extremely prevalent. So prevalent that the sudden heart attack (MI) rate was 13 x what it is today.

  • Type 2 Diabetes is proxy indicator of energy overload toxicity and are caused by accumulation fats in visceral and ectopic fat. If fat are accumulated in form of subcutaneous fat, this will not cause T2D. If subcutaneous fat can’t accumulate fat, then fat goes in visceral fat and this causes T2D. Different person have different capacity to accumulate fat in subcutaneous fat and for this reason BMI correlates with T2D, but not predict it.
    Few refutation of fructose hypothesis:
    With 150 g of fructose for 8 weeks no increase in triglicerides production, no insulin rise.
    Fructolysis: only <1% of fructose is converted to triglycerides https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fructolysis.

  • 1960’s — from Palm Oils/ Cane Sugar — to high fructose sweetners and GMO vegetable/seed Oils.
    And Tons of Preservatives. and Hormone Fed Animals.
    The Answer is at the End and is Surprising

  • He divides people only into “obese” (30%) and normal weight (70%) and then says that many of the “normal weight” people also get diabetes, so diabetes can’t possibly be about obesity. Well, what about the 30% of people lumped into the “normal weight” category who are actually “overweight.” I’m sure if Dr. Lustig added this category, he would find that the majority of the truly “normal weight” people (BMI under 25) are not diabetic. Also, those 20% in the obese category who aren’t diabetic are probably younger and not diabetic yet.

  • Loved this panel! Took a couple notes:
    8:30 really interesting how they can pinpoint that high insulin levels lead to increased fat deposits specifically in the belly region!

    9:28 List of the 5 components of Metabolic Syndrome:
    1. Abdominal obesity
    2. Triglyceride levels in the blood
    3. Amount of HDL (good) cholesterol
    4. Insulin resistance
    5. Hypertension/high blood pressure

    13:40 the main diets they recommend would be a Mediterranean Diet, as well as carbohydrate control/restriction for patients with Diabetes.
    I personally think the Mediterranean diet is effective in benefiting cardiovascular and liver disease because of its lack of processed foods, but I wish they would go into more detail on diet in another video:)

    14:20 stress eating, binge eating, stress hormones and their relation to cardiovascular health

    17:00 Exercise: do things you enjoy and you’re more likely to stick with it! They aim for 200-300 mins a week. HIIT training would be beneficial and can get similar results in less time.

    19:30 Its not magic! it’s a lifestyle change, not temporary a change. Also, Takes about 6 months to stop being carb addicted, interesting!

    I enjoyed listening to the program participant explain her experience. She made this relatable and provided an example for the audience on how to transform this info into real life actions
    27:20 Advice to others: you can do it!

  • I got in shape at 40 again at 50 and yet again at 60 I couldn’t wait until 70 so I got in shape at 65 and plan on never leaving plan again

  • I am a Dr from Algeria ����, and the amount of knowledge I just got from this video is waaaay more than what I’ve learned from all my years of study

  • I like how he gets super heated about what he is saying, and people try to laugh it off as a joke, but you know he is actually serious. lol

  • When I was a boy (long time ago) my mother would give me a hard time about eating sweets. “You’re going to get Sugar diabetes” which is what they called it then. I wonder how that connection was forgotten over time.

  • I agree with some of what he says, but he is missing a really, really big problem with fat/lipid/cholesterol ingestion and how this creates early senescence in cells and tissues, which ultimately leads to diabetes and many, many more problems. He and the rest of the so-called scientists live in journals, and all miss the bigger problem. Maybe someday they will wake up.

  • Totally doesn’t make sense. India didn’t have a high diabetes rate until the SAD diet was introduced. The amount of sugar someone needs to digest to start de novo lipogenesis? You would have to eat bushels of apples to get get to that state. The longest lived people in the world eat a mostly carb, high starch diet. According to Dr Lusting they would be constantly sick. I eat fruit 5-7 pieces a day 75 fasting blood sugar. My friend has diabetes has eat no fruit little of no sugar. FBS 155. Fat in the muscle cell causes diabetes. That is a fact! He doesn’t talk about Cancer or heart disease which Sat Fat is the same. Sugar in fruit isn’t the same as High fructose corn syrup! Any doctor knows that. At least everyone agrees that added sugar is poison so the WFPB diet has made some progress.

  • I find it hard to believe that our governments and medical systems are doing everything they can to cure and/or reduce symptoms of disease. Diabetes type 2 is a joke. Remove all processed foods and excess carbohydrates and get cured in 2 weeks. A kid would know this yet somehow the govt and med system does not? Having a very tough time to believe that.

  • Non Alcoholic STEATO hepatitis. Terrible speaker, litters the talk with “freakin’s”, lingers on who-cares-about, and stutters the main items so fast you have to google the acronym…

  • All these laws against drugs, yet big pharma and junk food industry runs rampant. Excuse me, but aren’t they drugs, too? The body doesn’t need added carbs. So then, what exactly is that Apple pie?

  • I lost 40 pounds doing KETO and Fasting my husband can’t believe it. He’s jumping on board now. Last year I walked 5 miles a day and my weight wouldn’t budge. I wouldn’t get lower then I give Fasting and KETO a try and BOOM �� I’m losing weight. YAY

  • This has nothing to do with obesity and everything to do with the overconsumption of sugar. In particular high fructose corn syrup which is 80% of processed foods. Watch Dr. Lustig for all the science SUGAR=POISON and is an addictive drug

  • Heck my doctor said this to me but I have a solid build and definitely not a fat gut? But did say my iron was high, etc. I train on average two-three times a week.

  • At around the 17:00 mark, after about the fourth time you had thrown the ‘bullshit flag’ (as I call it), I thought to myself “I like this guy!”…. Great presentation. Very informative.

  • This is why the FDA needs to be shut down I am hoping more doctors and health workers will start standing up to this. HELP! wake me up from this nightmare.

  • When I hear slobs say well we all gotta die from something may as well be crap food I feel like putting one in the chamber so the National Health costs can be reduced by these Morons.

  • How is fiber essential? I have been on ZERO carb ZERO fibre diet for 2 months and never felt better. I had heath check a week ago and the results were stunning. Everything is perfect. I also have lost a lot of viceral fat and I feel healthier than ever!

  • The clinical value of using “metabolic syndrome” as a diagnosis
    previously has been debated due to different sets of conflicting and
    incomplete diagnostic criteria.

  • Sounds like a made up disease. All it means is that you’re in a group of people that’s more likely to die from cardiovascular disease or stroke. They don’t describe anything about what this “syndrome” does physiologically. Rather, they literally come up with a bunch of rather nondescript measurements to take, and if you have 3 of them, congratulations, you have MS! You’re officially more likely to have a heart attack.

  • Robert good stuff. We just found you today. We been making great personal gains on this issues from buds from Doc Wallach and from Dr Jason Fung.

  • Branch Amino Acids Around 53:30 he mentions BCAA in a list of three other items including fructose. Does this mean these BCAAs contribute to the issue? (Not a medical person!)

  • It’s more than just sugar, fatty. Drop the carbs, increase the lean protein and you won’t need the suit to cover your extra 40 lbs.


  • No one follows the USDA recommendations. How do I know that? The average American eats a diet of 37-45% cal. fat. With that fat intake they CANNOT be eating the USDA diet it is impossible. HFCS is a problem but it is less of a problem if fat levels were appropriate.
