Causes of Metabolic Syndrome and the role of inflammation

Metabolic Syndrome is a single diagnosis that includes the multiple manifestations of insulin resistance – the precursor to type 2 diabetes and relentless driver of cardiovascular disease.4 whilst insulin is normally involved in the efficient delivery of glucose to cells for energy production, it can create a vastly different outcome if insulin resistance occurs within cells.

The major causative factors and precursor triggers are:

  • Inflammatory cytokines; Elevated markers of inflammation
  • Excessive plasma levels of free fatty acids;
  • Specific toxins (e.g. persistent organic pollutants)
  • Certain hormonal factors; and/or
  • Oxidants.
  • Inflammatory disorders
