What lifestyle changes help manage metabolic syndrome?
Lifestyle changes can definitely help manage metabolic syndrome, said Dr David Chandy, Consultant in Endocrinology at the Endocrinology department at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre adding that that metabolic syndrome is caused by “ a combination of poor diet, minimum exercise and genetic risk”.
He shared four key things to remember if diagnosed with the condition:
– Have a well balanced nutritious meal. Avoid simple carbohydrates like sugar, jaggery, honey based products. Consume more proteins and fiber.
– Exercise at least for 30 minutes, five days a week.
– Regularly meet your doctor and get tested so that complications can be avoided.
– Adherence to medication is pivotal. Take your medications on time so that all parameters are well balanced.
