Insulin Resistance -
a Root Cause of Metabolic Syndrome (Syndrome X)


Insulin Resistance creates increased levels of insulin and glucose in the blood stream, which is a major underlying cause of Metabolic Syndrome, also known as Syndrome X.

Combating this condition is crucial for heart disease prevention because Metabolic Syndrome can result in damage to the cardiovascular system, specifically the lining of the arteries and a greater risk of blood clot formation. The kidneys' ability to remove salt is also affected. All of these factors raise the likelihood of developing Cardiovascular Disease, heart attacks and stroke.

Research by Louisiana State University published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in December 2003 found that those suffering from Metabolic Syndrome were at significantly greater risk of dying from a heart attack than those without the condition. The study, conducted over a 15-year period, concluded that men with Metabolic Syndrome were from 2.9 to 4.2 times more likely to die of a heart attack.

Metabolic Syndrome and Insulin ResistanceThis breakthrough in understanding the body's biochemistry remains relatively unknown, even though Insulin Resistance has reached epidemic proportions. Your doctor may not have explained the crucial link between Insulin Resistance and Metabolic Syndrome. You need to understand this link in order to help reverse the symptoms of your condition.

The Insulite MetaX System is the first scientifically-designed method that may restore your body's ability to conquer the symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome by reversing Insulin Resistance.

METABOLIC SYNDROME AND INSULIN RESISTANCE

As an underlying cause of Metabolic Syndrome, Insulin Resistance has many factors that contribute to its presence in the body. In essence, our environment and lifestyles have evolved too rapidly for our bodies to keep pace. We are still genetically "wired" to thrive on the entrenched habits of our ancestors, who consumed different, nutrient-rich foods and a diet low in carbohydrates as well as sustaining greater levels of movement and exercise. Some people may also have a genetic predisposition to Insulin Resistance, while others develop the condition through high stress and unhealthy lifestyles.

INSULIN RESISTANCE NEGATIVELY AFFECTS GLUCOSE AND INSULIN LEVELS

Over time, the above factors have damaged the complex ability of the body's cells to properly utilize insulin to convert glucose to energy. This process creates Insulin Resistance, which can cause Metabolic Syndrome.

Insulin Resistance leads to Weight GainAn imbalance of insulin and glucose, Insulin Resistance densitizes your cell walls to insulin. As a result, glucose "bounces" off the cell wall, instead of passing through the insulin door to be converted and burned as energy. With the cell "door" almost closed to it, glucose remains in the blood stream, causing elevated levels of blood sugar, which are sent to the liver. Once there, the sugar is converted into fat and carried via the blood stream throughout the body. This process can lead to weight gain and obesity.

Insulin Resistance also underlies Metabolic Syndrome by raising insulin levels in the blood stream. Unhealthy lifestyles and genetic conditions cause the pancreas to overproduce insulin, which can lead to Pre-Diabetes.

This reversible latter condition occurs when glucose levels are higher than normal but not elevated enough for a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. If neglected, however, Pre-Diabetes may lead to the Type 2 variety, which can only be managed for the rest of a Diabetic's life in the vast majority of cases and may require daily injections of insulin. Type 2 Diabetes, itself, is a severely increased risk factor for blindness, kidney disease and the need for amputation.

"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."

"...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."
