Obesity and Metabolic Diseases

Risk factors for metabolic syndrome can include a diet high in unhealthy fats, calories, and carbohydrates as well as a lack of regular exercise. Overweight people tend to develop insulin resistance, which is a hormone that controls blood sugar levels by directing sugar into the body's cells, where it is used as fuel. When you have insulin resistance, blood sugar cannot be transported into your cells as effectively. One of the symptoms of type 2 diabetes is high blood sugar levels in the bloodstream as a result.
