“Dr. Ali’s book Living with Metabolic Syndrome serves as a great reference for readers looking for meticulously researched insights on metabolic syndrome. This […] covers virtually all the microcosms and specifics of the syndrome in such as succinct manner.” —Moshe Lewis, MD, MBA, MPH, Department of Physical Medicine & Rehab, California Pacific Medical Center
Affecting well over 50 million Americans, the series of conditions known as metabolic syndrome has reached epidemic proportions. Found in patients where increased blood pressure, high blood sugar level, excess body fat, and abnormal cholesterol level occur together, metabolic syndrome increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
With so many conditions working together, and no set list of identifiable symptoms, the best defense against metabolic syndrome is information—understanding the need for proper diet, exercise, and wellness checks. Incorporating information from all the latest research and treatment options, Living with Metabolic Syndrome is the breakthrough guide to understanding this ever-growing health problem.
So long as patients at risk of developing metabolic syndrome understand their risk factors, they can work to prevent the syndrome and restore their good health. Living with Metabolic Syndrome takes advantage of new findings from both clinical and physician studies while providing guidance in clear, authoritative language.
Touching on every aspect of metabolic syndrome, including: risk factors and possible symptoms; doctor’s visits, including choosing a specialist; and dealing with the emotional/psychological strain of long-term illness, Living with Metabolic Syndrome offers powerful techniques and real-world advice that sufferers can immediately use.
