Metabolic Syndrome & Insulin Resistance

Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, or insulin resistance are all weight-gaining medical conditions. Each of these conditions are characterized by individuals with abdominal obesity – the “apple” body shape (a large concentration of fat around the waist). The following symptoms are very common in people with these conditions (some symptoms may be similar to other weight-gaining medical conditions):

  • Can go long periods of time without eating before their glucose levels drop
  • The LESS they eat, the MORE weight they gain
  • They retain a lot of water
  • Eating carbs (carbohydrates) and sugars makes them tired
  • They crave more than the average person, and
  • Exercise and calorie diets tend not to work for them.

These are just a few of the symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, or insulin resistance. People with those conditions can’t do calorie diets, they simply don’t work. Instead, they have to be on a specialized diet to achieve improved health and weight loss.

Although there are blood tests which can identify those conditions, doctors are typically looking for a specific diagnosis like “You are diabetic,” not trying to determine how CLOSE you are to becoming diabetic. Because of this, doctors frequently do not catch these conditions early on. Unfortunately a person can be insulin resistant and in the beginning stages of diabetes for 15 years or more before it actually shows up, and that long build-up is a weight-gaining condition.

Metabolic Syndrome and insulin resistance can cause weight gain, and typical calorie-restricted diets don’t work for individuals suffering from these conditions. These conditions have to be managed carefully with medication and a specialized diet in order to lose weight.
