Syndrome X or Insulin Resistance

What is Syndrome X? You may not have heard of Syndrome X, but have you heard of Insulin Resistance? Or how about Pre-Diabetes? They are all the same condition and the common denominator is it’s the precursor to diabetes. The body becomes overwhelmed by insulin fluctuations and the cells become resistant to it. Blood sugar levels soar out of control, setting off damaging free radicals, Inflammation, and metabolic problems. The symptoms of Syndrome X usually go undetected by doctors for years, because the symptoms are so varied.
