If you’re carrying either a “spare tyre” around the waist, or suffering from high levels of cholesterol or high blood pressure, you may have the condition known as ‘Syndrome X’. A cluster of symptoms indicating Syndrome X may include frequent sugar or carbohydrate cravings, fatigue, anxiety, poor concentration, irritability, shaking, palpitations, mood swings, depression, restless sleep and storing excess body fat (particularly around the mid-section).
What is Syndrome X?
Syndrome X is also known as ’pre-diabetic condition’ and it is linked with obesity and being overweight. Syndrome X comes about by eating the wrong type of high GI foods, like refined carbohydrates that are sugar or flour-based (e.g. white rice, breads and lollies), or by eating too many natural, carbohydrate-dense foods like processed grains and potatoes. The more carbohydrates that are eaten, the more the body produces insulin to combat the extra blood sugar. When you have Syndrome X, the insulin begins to lose its effect until eventually ‘insulin resistance’ occurs. Due to the ‘non-response’ of insulin, blood sugar then rises and the body becomes sluggish, stores excess fat, and blood pressure & cholesterol increases.
The problem with developing Syndrome X is that it is a pre-diabetic precursor so anyone with this condition will usually develop Type 2 diabetes. But the good news is that Syndrome X can be prevented and reversed, by losing weight and avoiding refined carbohydrates.
