There are 5 sticky physical traits that are leading to serious health problems for some unfortunate people. What has been discovered is if you have 3 of these 5 traits, you are at an increased risk for Coronary Artery Disease, Stroke and Diabetes. Let’s look at what these symptoms might be:

1. High blood pressure

2. High fasting blood sugars

3. Large waist circumference

4. Low HDL cholesterol levels

5. High Triglycerides

Does this sound like you or someone you know? Statistics show that 1 out of every 3 adult men and women alike have metabolic syndrome and 1 out of every 10 kids!1 Weight is the one biggest risk factor for acquiring metabolic syndrome and obesity is on the rise. A United States statistical analysis showed that the average American male is on average 30 pounds heavier today than in 1960, and women an average 25 pounds heavier.2

So what to do now? If you aren’t sure when your last blood work was done, make an appointment with Dr. Erickson to get that done. If you are uncertain what your last labs say, she can explain them to you.
