It's a big health problem that impacts millions of Americans, yet most don't know they're at risk! Naturopathic Physician Greg Eckel, ND, joined us to talk about Metabolic Syndrome. He says it is a cluster of metabolic risk factors that include insulin resistance, high blood pressure, increased cholesterol levels and more which often brings with it an increase in cardiovascular disease. Dr. Eckel talked about why there are few symptoms, what can be done to test for it and the best way to avoid it.
