Metabolic Syndrome Doctor | Royal Oak, MI

Metabolic syndrome, also known as insulin resistance syndrome, is a group of interrelated conditions that increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other serious health problems. Medical experts estimate that between 22% and 30% of adults in the United States have metabolic syndrome. Yet many patients are not aware they have metabolic syndrome, because traditional doctors often treat the individual symptoms and illnesses as separate and unrelated conditions.

This approach is extremely dangerous, because if left undiagnosed and untreated, metabolic syndrome can leading to a host of life threatening complications over time. And without proper management, high blood sugar can damage blood vessels and organs, increasing the risk of cardiac disease, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, nerve damage, blindness, and even limb amputation, making early detection and treatment crucial.
