Syndrome X: Overcoming The Silent Killer That Can Give You A Heart Attack - hardcover

ISBN: 0684868628

[SR: 2135560], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780684868622], Simon & Schuster, Simon & Schuster, Book, [PU: Simon & Schuster], Simon & Schuster, The American Heart Association and other leading health organizations recommend a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet to prevent heart attacks. But now -- in an important new book sure to generate heated controversy -- a world-renowned physician at the forefront of metabolic research explains why this may be dangerous and lays out a simple six-point program to reduce the risk of heart disease for everyone. The problem stems from a little-known cluster of metabolic abnormalities known as Syndrome X. The insulin resistance that lies at the heart of the syndrome turns normal rules of good health on their head and dramatically increases the risk of heart disease for those affected. From the physician whose research originally discovered this silent killer, this book describes simple blood tests that identify the disorder and provides a program of diet and exercise (plus medication when necessary) that can render Syndrome X harmless. Tested in carefully controlled research settings and in practice, this remarkable new approach has the ability to reduce the risk of heart attacks and heart disease for all of us., The phrase "insulin resistance" entered the pop lexicon a few years ago. Unfortunately, few people understand what it means, and some of the prescriptions for dealing with the problem actually make it worse. As Dr. Gerald Reaven, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, explains, insulin resistance is part of Syndrome X, a once-mysterious killer of millions. Someone with Syndrome X has very high insulin levels, along with high blood fats and unusually small and dense particles of LDL (low-density lipoprotein)--the dangerous stuff. Diets high in carbohydrates or protein--like the American Heart Association and Zone diets--actually lead to more insulin production. Reaven says this starts a chain reaction in people with Syndrome X that leads to damaged arteries and eventually to heart attacks. Since the late 1960s, Dr. Reaven has methodically assembled the various pieces of the Syndrome X puzzle. Almost immediately, his research was bastardized to promote the notion that insulin makes you fat. But, as Dr. Reaven emphasizes in Syndrome X, you don't have to be fat to have insulin resistance, nor are fat people necessarily insulin resistant. Although 25 to 30 percent of Americans have insulin resistance, it's probably not the people you think have it: those at greatest risk are of non-European origin. The solutions to the problem start with a low-carbohydrate diet that's high in unsaturated fats--fish, nuts, oils, and margarine and mayonnaise made from safflower oil. Reaven also recommends the usual suspects: more exercise, no smoking, less drinking. The payoff? A longer, healthier life. And the superiority that comes with actually knowing what "insulin resistance" means. --Lou Schuler, 4616, Other Diets, 4613, Diets & Weight Loss, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 282813, Heart Disease, 4656, Diseases & Physical Ailments, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 282861, Nutrition, 282869, Antioxidants & Phytochemicals, 282867, Caffeine, 282863, Cancer Prevention, 282872, Fiber, 282865, Food Additives, 282862, Food Allergies, 282866, Genetically Engineered Food, 4631, Macrobiotics, 282868, Vitamins & Supplements, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Title:

Syndrome X: Overcoming the Silent Killer That Can Give You a Heart Attack

ISBN:

The American Heart Association and other leading health organizations recommend a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet to prevent heart attacks. But now -- in an important new book sure to generate heated controversy -- a world-renowned physician at the forefront of metabolic research explains why this may be dangerous and lays out a simple six-point program to reduce the risk of heart disease for everyone. The problem stems from a little-known cluster of metabolic abnormalities known as Syndrome X. The insulin resistance that lies at the heart of the syndrome turns normal rules of good health on their head and dramatically increases the risk of heart disease for those affected. From the physician whose research originally discovered this silent killer, this book describes simple blood tests that identify the disorder and provides a program of diet and exercise (plus medication when necessary) that can render Syndrome X harmless. Tested in carefully controlled research settings and in practice, this remarkable new approach has the ability to reduce the risk of heart attacks and heart disease for all of us., The phrase "insulin resistance" entered the pop lexicon a few years ago. Unfortunately, few people understand what it means, and some of the prescriptions for dealing with the problem actually make it worse.

As Dr. Gerald Reaven, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, explains, insulin resistance is part of Syndrome X, a once-mysterious killer of millions. Someone with Syndrome X has very high insulin levels, along with high blood fats and unusually small and dense particles of LDL (low-density lipoprotein)--the dangerous stuff. Diets high in carbohydrates or protein--like the American Heart Association and Zone diets--actually lead to more insulin production. Reaven says this starts a chain reaction in people with Syndrome X that leads to damaged arteries and eventually to heart attacks.

Since the late 1960s, Dr. Reaven has methodically assembled the various pieces of the Syndrome X puzzle. Almost immediately, his research was bastardized to promote the notion that insulin makes you fat. But, as Dr. Reaven emphasizes in Syndrome X, you don't have to be fat to have insulin resistance, nor are fat people necessarily insulin resistant. Although 25 to 30 percent of Americans have insulin resistance, it's probably not the people you think have it: those at greatest risk are of non-European origin.

The solutions to the problem start with a low-carbohydrate diet that's high in unsaturated fats--fish, nuts, oils, and margarine and mayonnaise made from safflower oil. Reaven also recommends the usual suspects: more exercise, no smoking, less drinking.

The payoff? A longer, healthier life. And the superiority that comes with actually knowing what "insulin resistance" means. --Lou Schuler
