Syndrome is a major cause of Cardiovascular Disease which
increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Up to 25% of the adult population of the United States is
thought to suffer from the cluster of cardiovascular disorders
known as Metabolic Syndrome, according to a report by the
American Heart Association (1). That means 58-73 million
American men and women are at risk from this condition. Also
called Syndrome X, it substantially increases the chances of
damaging the cardiovascular system and raises the risk of
developing reversible Pre-Diabetes, which, if neglected, can
lead to Type 2 Diabetes. Men with Metabolic Syndrome may also be
more vulnerable to prostrate cancer.
In addition to all
the other risks, women with Metabolic Syndrome also have higher
occurrences of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), a disorder
where high levels of excess insulin can stimulate the ovaries to
secrete abnormally high levels of testosterone. Excess levels of
this male hormone may prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg
each month, thus causing infertility.
Increased levels of
insulin and glucose in the blood stream of people with Metabolic
Syndrome have been proven to inflict damage on the lining of the
arteries. Elevated insulin and glucose also affect the kidneys’
ability to remove salt and cause a greater risk of blood clot
formation. 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 (2). 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.
scientific evidence demonstrates additional risk factors. A
study by Philadelphia’s Thomas Jefferson University found that
men with Metabolic Syndrome had a 78% greater risk of having a
stroke than those free of the condition (3).
"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."
