    Could you have syndrome x

    Syndrome X is the most common cause of inability to lose weight. It mostly occurs in people with excess abdominal fat. Syndrome X also goes by the names metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance basically means that the hormone insulin, which is made by your pancreas has become less effective at controlling your blood sugar. This makes you prone to symptoms of unstable blood sugar, such as fatigue, sugar cravings, anxiety, insomnia and feeling unwell if you haven’t eaten for several hours. Syndrome X also places you at much greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes and fatty liver. People with syndrome X also have a three-fold higher risk of having a heart attack. Clearly it’s important to avoid developing Syndrome X. There are certain diagnostic criteria used to determine if a person has syndrome X.

    Acne and Eczema

    Recently I received a telephone call from Gail, distressed for her son Phil. Since Phil was 8 years old, he had suffered from breakouts all over his body that Gail described as ringworm and eczema, occurring during the winter months, only to clear up over the summer leaving white marks all over his skin. Over the years, Gail had taken her son to countless skin specialists, iridologists and doctors, trying countless creams and anti-biotics, only to have her Phil's skin irritations reoccur every winter. In fact, as he was getting older, acne was also starting to manifest increasingly - to the point that Phil was becoming reclusive and self conscious, with eventual sleep disturbances, constantly waking at around 1am.

    Food Allergies

    People who are gluten intolerant are highly likely to have other food sensitivities. It’s usually not very welcome news, since gluten intolerance already means having to follow a restricted diet. The important thing to remember is gluten can cause irritation and inflammation to the lining of the intestines in people with a sensitivity to it. In effect it makes the gut lining more permeable (leaky). This can set the stage for the development of new food allergies or sensitivities because incompletely digested food molecules can get absorbed into the blood through the leaky gut. This starts off an immune response and future food sensitivity.

    Should you worry if you find a breast lump?

    I encourage all women to perform self breast examinations regularly. It is very important to be familiar with your own breasts; knowing exactly how they appear and how they feel. This way, you can detect subtle changes at an early stage, and then see your doctor for further investigations if necessary. A large percentage of the patients I’ve seen with breast cancer detected a lump or other abnormality themselves. They were able to notice a subtle change in their breast, which enabled a tumor to be detected at a very early and treatable stage.
