What Is Diabesity?
More than 93 million Americans are obese, and the rate of diabetes is growing steadily. Many of these people are suffering from a cluster of symptoms and chronic health problems, like insulin resistance and metabolic dysfunction, along with abdominal obesity and type 2 diabetes.
We can refer to to those collectively as diabesity. These chronic illnesses share the same underlying cause—and they’re preventable and, in many cases, completely reversible.

What Is Metabolic Syndrome?
Metabolic syndrome often precedes type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It’s characterized by high blood pressure, a large waist circumference, elevated fasting glucose and triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol.
If you’re suffering from these metabolic issues, treat it like a warning sign. Heart disease and type 2 diabetes could develop, unless you take steps to correct the underlying cause.

Preventing and Reversing Diabesity and Metabolic Syndrome
Diabesity and metabolic syndrome can cause serious harm throughout the body. Undoing that systemic damage takes a different approach. It’s not enough to exercise and eat well; you need to focus on improving your gut health and your intestinal integrity.
