Metabolic Syndrome Criteria...Is this You?

Posted by on Wed, Dec 26, 2012


                           

I want to share with you what I have been up to lately!

I’ve been helping people with pre-diabetes and Type II diabetes to get their blood sugar levels to come down through diet and lifestyle changes.

Deconstructing Diabetes is a 3 month diet and lifestyle program developed for those people with metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and/or Type II diabetes.

Do you have any of the following?

Waist measurement of > 35 for women

                               > 40 for men

Triglyceride level  > 150 mg/dl

HDL level     < 40 for men

                 < 50 for women

Blood pressure > 130/85

Fasting blood glucose > 100 mg/dl
