A backpack full of risk factors in the advent season in the advent and Christmas season we tend to, but something more to eat and to drink was actually health-conducive. The risk Quartet consisting of waist circumference, blood sugar, blood lipids and high blood pressure, which is known by doctors as metabolic syndrome, significantly increases the risk for heart attack, stroke and diabetes. So the not very surprising result of a large study. The metabolic syndrome with a greatly increased risk for CHD, so atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke was correlated in men 45 years and women aged 55 and over. The same is true for diabetes. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Dr. Neal Barnard. Lives in Germany about any third party on the threshold to the metabolic syndrome.
What can you do to defuse the ticking time bomb in the Christmas season? It is actually relatively easy against the metabolic syndrome to proceed. Because a manifest metabolic syndrome is achieved when 3 of the following 5 criteria are met: overweight (Waist circumference), slightly elevated blood sugar, slightly elevated cholesterol, slightly elevated total fats, or elevated blood pressure. To reduce the number of risk factors, you have no more than his dietary habits change and move more during Christmas. Where the most important measure is to get the risk factor obesity under control. That alone could reduce the increased risk of disease by around 20%, but alone not sufficient to reduce the risk of heart attack and diabetes on normal. To do this, other risk factors need to be tackled. In practice turns out however, that it is not so easy to change his love habits and to eat more fruits and vegetables and to go on the jogging path.
