Metabolic Syndrome

Many individuals have never heard of Metabolic Syndrome, but is has been around since 1988, when it was first brought to light by a Standford University researcher. It is estimated to affect one in every four Americans. It can, if left unchecked, predispose a person to a potential for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
