Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X) and Mental Disorders

Information about Metabolic Syndrome and Mental DisordersMen experiencing heart disease symptoms caused by Insulin Resistance-related Metabolic Syndrome and aged around 50 are more likely to suffer from vascular dementia in their late 70s, according to a report presented to the American Academy of Neurology (1).

Additionally, some studies have examined the relationship between Metabolic Syndrome and psychological risk factors such as depression, anxiety, tension, current perceived stress and anger. Researchers concluded that there was a reciprocal association between anger and Metabolic Syndrome (2). In other words, each side of the equation had an effect on the other – those with Metabolic Syndrome were more likely to experience depression, anxiety, tension etc. and those who were depressed, anxious, stressed, etc. were more likely to develop Metabolic Syndrome.

The exact interaction of these conditions is unclear and it’s still part of a complex neurobiological jigsaw puzzle that scientists continue to study. Early data suggests, however, that Alzheimer's patients showed improved memory after an infusion of insulin, which speaks to the role of glucose metabolism in the physiology of dementia.

Women with Type 2 Diabetes, who have twice the risk of developing depression, showed marked improvement in depressive instances when they received education and treatment for Insulin and Metabolic Syndrome (3).

Click here to read about the ground-breaking Insulite MetaX System, which is scientifically-designed reverse Metabolic Syndrome — a condition often linked to mental disorders. The system includes numerous formulations, including InsulX, which, among other ingredients, includes chromium to balance glucose and insulin levels in the blood stream to aid weight loss, reduce hypertension (high blood pressure) and prevent damage to blood vessels, which can increase the risk of mental disorders.

"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 lbs since 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 you again!"

"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 weekly messages 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."

"...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."
