Metabolic Syndrome Information

While I was the Health Guide at the HealthCentral schizophrenia website I wrote numerous articles about medical conditions that people with this emotional illness could be at greater risk for.

As I don’t own the copyright for my HealthCentral news articles (and I’m not an M.D.) I’m going to provide in this blog entry links to other health websites.

Use this information at your own discretion. Seek professional help for your own health matters instead of relying on the internet to diagnosis yourself.

Yet if at all you think there’s a benefit in getting help schedule an appointment with a doctor.

I’m providing links to metabolic syndrome information because I want to give a public service. A loved one of mine has had a stroke. She had metabolic syndrome.

People who have 3 out of the 5 factors are diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome increases a person’s risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

At the least I firmly believe everyone should have  a check-up with their primary care doctor at least once every year. Go more often if that would benefit you.

In the coming blog entries I’m going to talk about fitness and nutrition again.

It’s Greenmarket season. It’s also perfect weather for taking long walks outside.

May is Older Americans Month as well as Mental Health Month. May is also Physical Fitness and Sports Month.

This is a trio of topics that are right up my alley that I’ll link together to talk about in coming blog entries.

Mayo Clinic Metabolic Syndrome Information.
