Have you been somewhat frustrated in the management of your patients...

Have you been somewhat frustrated in the management of your patients who battle (or succumb to) obesity, elevated blood sugar, along with other abnormal blood chemistries, and cardiovascular problems? Well, even if you are not frustrated, I think you will enjoy and profit from this issue of D.C. Tracts as it deals with Metabolic Syndrome. Dr. Brian Anderson’s lectures will provide a detailed overview covering metabolic syndrome history, prevalence, effective treatment approaches, risk factors such as epigenetics, genetics, lifestyle, and social risk factors.

Pay attention to the title of Dr. Susan St. Claire’s article. It will let you know the comprehensive scope of her article. It will also prepare you for the journey through the five criteria to determine a diagnosis of metabolic syndrome, to nutritional interventions, recognizing the importance of micronutrients, factors that influence intestinal health, lifestyle modifications, phytochemicals, the Mediterranean Diet, and intermittent fasting. She wraps it up with the encouragement for early intervention, and to also pursue regular exercise, caloric restriction, and avoidance of high glycemic foods. While each topic we cover in D.C. Tracts is clinically significant, I feel that this particular topic is so important because too many Americans are eating themselves to death.
