Is there a cure for metabolic syndrome X?

There is no cure for metabolic syndrome X, but with a commitment to adjusting your daily life you may be able to postpone its onset. Excess fat around the midsection, high cholesterol and elevated blood sugar can often be prevented with a nutritious and heart healthy diet.

Eating a diet that is high in whole grains, fiber and lean meat and low in salt, saturated fat and processed foods can ward off the factors that combine to create metabolic syndrome X. Participate in physical activity and exercise on a daily basis to increase calorie expenditure, heart health and blood circulation. Visit your doctor to get regular check ups and stay on top of your health.
