Metabolic Syndrome

Mid-line weight gain accompanied by insulin-resistance tied to rising blood sugar, elevated blood lipids, high blood pressure, associated with vascular inflammation and atherosclerotic coronary vascular disease, represent the growing epidemic of Metabolic Syndrome.

Weight reduction, diet, exercise, and medication for lowering of blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, and prevention of heart attack comprise the conventional approach to treating metabolic syndrome.

Dr. Cooke uses these approaches while maximizing the role of diet and nutritional supplementation in the task. Aiming for clear clinical and laboratory benchmarks with the doctor’s support will aid you on your path to well-being.
