Can metabolic syndrome be prevented?
Metabolic syndrome is almost always preventable. Prevention involves maintaining a healthy weight, eating nutritious food, limiting fatty or sugar-filled foods and exercising regularly. It is also important to have regular health checks to monitor blood pressure, and the levels of blood sugar and triglycerides (a type of fat found in the blood). This will allow your doctor to identify any abnormal results and suggest a treatment plan to bring your results into a healthy range.
