THE ISSUE WITH OBESITY
The Obesity Crisis
The UK currently tops Europe’s Obesity League.
BMI (Body Mass Index) is the most common measure of obesity and is a ratio between weight and height. It is imperfect on an individual basis because it cannot distinguish between fat, muscle and bone, but it can give an accurate assessment of population risk.
A BMI of 25 to 29 is considered to be overweight, while over 30 is obese.
People often assume you need to be really fat to be at risk, but once you hit a BMI of 25, your risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer all begin to increase.
The Issue is The Metabolic Syndrome
This is a combination of traits that increases your risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death in the UK.
The more risk factors you have, the higher your risk.
The good news is that ALL these risk factors can be prevented or reversed with simple changes to your diet and lifestyle. The Insulean Programme will give you all the knowledge, tools and support you need to change your life for good. We know exactly what works and what doesn’t.
What are Metabolic Risk Factors?
To be diagnosed with The Metabolic Syndrome, you must have at least 3 main metabolic risk factors.
The Insulean Programme is specifically designed and tailored to addresses all these risk factors, to prevent and reverse disease.
The metabolic blood test panel checks your liver function, lipid profile, average glucose level, thyroid function, key markers of energy as well as tests for inflammation and stress. We can also check your insulin levels and extent of insulin resistance.

Complications of being Overweight
As well as frustrating problems like breathlessness, fatigue and joint pain, excessive weight gain can lead to severe psychological problems and serious health conditions.
Losing weight therefore confers a whole host of physical and psychological benefits.
