A number of factors, often the result of poor diet and lack of exercise, can conspire to cause metabolic syndrome and place you at risk of serious and even life-threatening conditions.If you suffer from high blood pressure or blood sugar, carry extra pounds around your waist and have high cholesterol levels – it’s time to make a change in how you lead your life.NanoHealth Associates, with offices in Hollywood and Miami Beach in south Florida, can help you reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes by employing a proactive approach to prevent health problems before they arise, especially as we get older.
“We want to stop using Band-Aids and get to the core of the problem,” said Dr. Adam Splaver, a cardiologist and principal physician with NanoHealth. ”It’s not waiting for disease to happen.”
Several factors can lead to metabolic syndrome, which is actually a number of conditions that can lead to stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
Some people are insulin resistant because of family history, which can negatively impact the amount of sugar in the blood and lead to diabetes.
Heart disease and stroke can also occur if health problems are not addressed.
Age, weight, how much you exercise and your body mass index are also important elements in working to avoid metabolic syndrome and the health risks it brings.
At NanoHealth, patients work with doctors to review the patient’s medical and family history. Blood work and subsequent lab studies can help uncover problems – and prevent potential problems from occurring.
At NanoHealth, we work with patients to develop diet, exercise and vitamin plans to help patients stay healthy and live a more active and fulfilling life.
"We use natural therapies to change the course and reduce risk in the future," Dr. Splaver said of patients’ health.
