Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a Group of conditions  increased blood pressure, a high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Most of the disorders associated with metabolic syndrome have no symptoms, although a large waist circumference is a visible sign. If your blood sugar is very high, you might experience signs and symptoms of diabetes including increased thirst and urination, fatigue, and blurred vision.

Syndrome X

Single X syndrome, where an individual has a single X chromosome, typically described as Turner syndrome.The unidentifiable rare disease (named "Syndrome X" by her physicians) that afflicted Brooke Greenberg and only about half a dozen other people in the world, none of whom have aged mentally or physically since young childhood, despite living for years or decades. The underlying disorder causing the syndrome remains unknown, unexplained, and virtually undiscovered.

Metabolic Syndrome Diet

Metabolic disease, any of the diseases or disorders that disrupt normal metabolism, the process of converting food to energy on a cellular level. Thousands of enzymes participating in numerous interdependent metabolic pathways carry out this process. Metabolic diseases affect the ability of the cell to perform critical biochemical reactions that involve the processing or transport of proteins (amino acids), carbohydrates (sugars and starches), or lipids (fatty acids).

Metabolic Disorder

A metabolic disorder occurs when abnormal chemical reactions in the human body disrupt metabolism. When this happens, the patient may have too much of some substances, or too little of others, which are needed to stay healthy. Disorders in metabolism can be inherited, in which case they are also known as inborn errors of metabolism, or they may be acquired during your lifetime. Many metabolic disorders exist. Phenylketonuria is an example of an inherited metabolic disorder characterized by an inability to break down one of the building blocks of protein, the amino acid phenylalanine. Type I diabetes, a disease in which the pancreas does not create enough insulin to maintain balanced blood sugar levels, is a metabolic disorder of sugar metabolism. An example of a metabolic disorder affecting fat metabolism is Gaucher’s disease, which is characterized by a lack of the of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase. Metabolic disorders can also be complications of severe diseases or conditions, including liver or respiratory failure, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and HIV/AIDS.

Endocrine glands are a group of glands in the body which secrete hormones. The purpose of the secreted hormones is to cause a specific response in other cells of the body which are located far away. the hormones are secreted out of the cells of an endocrine gland into the blood stream giving them access to all other cells of the body. a hormone is a molecule that is secreted by one cell which has an effect on another cell some distance away.

Belly Fat

An excess of visceral fat is known as central obesity, or "belly fat", in which the abdomen protrudes excessively and new developments such as the Body Volume Index (BVI) are specifically designed to measure abdominal volume and abdominal fat. Excess visceral fat is also linked to type 2 diabetes insulin resistance, inflammatory diseases, and other obesity-related diseases. Men are more likely to have fat stored in the belly due to sex hormone differences. Female sex hormone causes fat to be stored in the buttocks, thighs, and hips in women. When women reach menopause and the estrogen produced by the ovaries declines, fat migrates from the buttocks, hips and thighs to the waist; later fat is stored in the abdomen. High-intensity exercise is one way to effectively reduce total abdominal fat. One study suggests at least 10 MET-hours per week of aerobic exercise is required for visceral fat reduction.

Cortisol is an important hormone in the body, secreted by the adrenal glands. Normally, it’s present in the body at higher levels in the morning, and at its lowest at night. Although stress isn’t the only reason that cortisol is secreted into the bloodstream, it has been termed “the stress hormone” because it’s also secreted in higher levels during the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response to stress, and is responsible for several stress-related changes in the body.

Hydrocortisone is used to treat people who lack adequate naturally generated cortisol. Hydrocortisone is a naturally occuring corticosteroid used princially for its antiinfalmmatory and immunosuppressive actions or as a hormone replacement therapy. Hydrocortisone is used to reduce swelling and inflammation. Hydrocortisone is used in a variety of disorders including allergic conditions, respiratory conditions, blood disorders, digestive problems, eyes, skin, and rheumatic disorders etc.

Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance (IR) is a condition in which the body's cells become resistant to the effects of insulin. That is, the normal response to a given amount of insulin is reduced. As a result, higher levels of insulin are needed in order for insulin to have its proper effects. So, the pancreas compensates by trying to produce more insulin. This resistance occurs in response to the body's own insulin (endogenous) or when insulin is administered by injection (exogenous).

Metabolism is closely linked to nutrition and the availability of nutrients. Bioenergetics is a term which describes the biochemical or metabolic pathways by which the cell ultimately obtains energy. Energy formation is one of the vital components of metabolism. Catabolism - the breakdown of molecules to obtain energy. Anabolism - the synthesis of all compounds needed by the cells.

Metabolic Acidosis

Metabolic acidosis is a condition in which there is too much acid in the body fluids. Metabolic acidosis occurs when the body produces too much acid, or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body.examples are Diabetic acidosis, Lactic acidosis, Hyperchloremic acidosis.

Metabolism Boosters

Metabolism boosters are like the fuel-burning furnace that powers your body. If you’re looking to lose weight or increase definition, then boosting your metabolism should be a top priority. Increasing your metabolic rate helps create the calorie deficit (more calories out than in) that results in the loss of body fat. Aside from calcium rich foods like yogurt, the following foods (for various reasons) have been linked to increased metabolic rates: Cinnamon, curry, jalapenos, oatmeal, beans, green tea, ginger, grapefruits, apples, coffee, almonds, blueberries, and watermelons.

Basal Metabolic Rate

Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimal rate of energy expenditure per unit time by endothermic animals at rest. It is reported in energy units per unit time ranging from watt (Joule/second) to ml O2/min or Joule per hour per kg body mass J/(h.kg)).

Metabolic Nutrition

Metabolism is the chemical process your body uses to transform the food you eat into the fuel that keeps you alive. Nutrition (food) consists of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. These substances are broken down by enzymes in your digestive system, and then carried to the cells where they can be used as fuel. Your body either uses these substances immediately, or stores them in the liver, body fat, and muscle tissues for later use.

Metabolic Pathway

Metabolic pathway is a series of chemical reactions occurring within a cell. In a pathway, the initial chemical (metabolite) is modified by a sequence of chemical reactions. These reactions are catalyzed by enzymes, where the product of one enzyme acts as the substrate for the next. These enzymes often require dietary minerals, vitamins, and other cofactors to function.Pathways are required for the maintenance of homeostasis within an organism and the flux of metabolites through a pathway is regulated depending on the needs of the cell and the availability of the substrate. The end product of a pathway may be used immediately, initiate another metabolic pathway or be stored for later use. The metabolism of a cell consists of an elaborate network of interconnected pathways that enable the synthesis and breakdown of molecules (anabolism and catabolism)

Metabolic Weight Loss

Metabolic weight Energy expenditure and basal metabolic rate depend on the amount of metabolically active tissue in the body, rather than total body weight; body weight 0.75 is generally used to calculate the weight of active tissue
