A group of 14 tests that provide important information about the
status of kidneys, liver, electrolyte and acid/base balance,
blood sugar and blood proteins. A broad screening tool, the CMP
is also used to monitor complications of diseases or side
effects of some medications.
C-reactive protein (CRP)
One of the plasma proteins known as acute-phase proteins:
proteins whose plasma concentrations increase (or decrease) by
25% or more during inflammatory disorders. CRP is a test of
value in medicine, reflecting the presence and intensity of
inflammation although an elevation in C-reactive protein is not
the absolute diagnostic sign of any one condition. Inflammation
is believed to play a major role in the development of coronary
artery disease; markers of inflammation have been tested in
respect to heart health. In a recent study, CRP was found to be
the only marker of inflammation that independently predicts the
risk of a heart attack.
Primarily sugars and starches which constitute one of the three
principal types of nutrients (carbohydrates, fats and proteins)
used as energy sources (calories) by the body. Carbohydrates
come in complex forms such as starches and fiber and simple
forms such as sugars. Most sugars and starches are broken down
by the body into glucose, a simple sugar that can be used to
A physician who is certified to treat problems of the
cardiovascular system—the heart, arteries and veins, all key
areas damaged by Metabolic Syndrome. Cardiology is classified an
internal medicine subspecialty. Knowledge of internal medicine
and other specialties is required to obtain certification.
A disease affecting the blood vessels or heart.
The body's most common type of steroid, it is crucial to the
formation of Vitamin D, sex hormones (progesterone, estrogens
and androgens), mineralocortcoid hormones (aldosterone) and
glucocorticoid hormones (cortisol) and bile acids (for digestion
of fat). It is carried in the blood stream as lipoproteins, e.g.
LDL (low density lipoproteins) or “good” cholesterol and HDL
(high density lipoproteins) or “bad” cholesterol. Cholesterol is
also essential for cell membrane function.
A trace mineral considered essential to health, it is linked to
the production of glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which affects
insulin binding receptors and thus, stability of blood glucose
levels. It is also involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
A biologically active chromium salt containing three picolinic
acid ligands that is used as a dietary supplement.
Cimetidine belongs to a class of medications called H2-blockers
that inhibit the action of histamine on the stomach cells, thus
reducing stomach acid production.
Coronary heart disease (Coronary artery disease)
Coronary heart disease (or coronary artery disease) is the most
common form of heart disease and affects the blood vessels (or
coronary arteries) of the heart. It causes angina (chest pain)
and heart attacks. High blood pressure and cholesterol, smoking,
obesity and not being physically active all put individuals at
risk for coronary heart disease.
A hormone released in the body during stressed or agitated
states. But cortisol is more than a simple marker of stress
levels - it is necessary for the functioning of almost every
part of the body. Made in the adrenal glands, adjacent to the
kidneys, it has important roles in the regulation of blood
pressure and cardiovascular functions, key areas affected by
Metabolic Syndrome. Cortisol also helps to regulate the body's
use of proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
"I have been on the Insulite
System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver
functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I
was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the
AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in
years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has
changed my life.
I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program.
Your product is fantastic. I have
cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing
weight again after being
"stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4
starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is
well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is
better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control
between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather
than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months
supply. Thank you!"
"Researchers agree that insulin
resistance is central to the metabolic syndrome. When target
cells are unresponsive to insulin, the pancreas responds by
pouring even more insulin into the bloodstream, leading to high
levels of the hormone in the blood, a condition called
compensatory hyperinsulinemia. The high level of insulin in the
blood forces glucose into cells but also starts the events
leading to arterial damage and eventually a heart attack. Under
these conditions, a person may not manifest either diabetes or
heart disease but could well be on the way to either or both."
"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health.
It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type
II Diabetes by almost 60%."
"I started your product and found
it really boosts my system,
helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards.
It gave me the
energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.
You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side
of the world
(Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your
are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit
harder. Thank you for everything."
"A non-pharmacologic treatment for these
patients is needed, since drugs prescribed to lower blood
pressure have been shown to actually worsen carbohydrate and
lipid metabolism in Syndrome X patients, negating the beneficial
effects of those drugs."
"I cannot believe the difference
the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has
changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my
appetite is somewhat diminished."
"...approximately 90% of
overweight Hispanic children with a family history for type 2 diabetes have at least one
feature of the metabolic syndrome and 30% possess the metabolic syndrome.
Our results support the view that improving insulin resistance may be crucial in the prevention
of both type 2 diabetes and premature cardiovascular disease in this at-risk subpopulation
of Hispanic youth."
