Conditions That Increase Cancer Risk

There are myriad reasons to lose weight and get your blood sugar and blood pressure under control. Reducing your risk of cancer would be one of the most important reasons.

From NPR, this article explains in brief the connection between metabolic syndrome and cancer. Metabolic syndrome is defined as having three of the five following conditions: hypertension, low HDL cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, high blood sugar, and a large midsection/waistline.

Fortunately, working with a Registered Dietitian can make all the difference in the world. The dietary changes that can help decrease your weight, improve your blood sugar numbers, and reduce hypertension can all be accomplished with good counseling and patient commitment.
