It is estimated that as many as 50% of people suffering from high blood pressure symptoms also have insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance is a pre-diabetic inflammatory state that is indicated by high levels of insulin in the blood.
There is definitely a connection between high blood pressure and high insulin levels, which are also associated with obesity and inflammation markers like triglycerides, blood sugar and bad cholesterol (LDL).
If you have high blood pressure along with these other conditions, then you may be at a risk for metabolic syndrome X.
Many people are told that no one knows the cause of high blood pressure, insulin resistance or heart disease, yet the fact remains. There is a cause.
With cases of metabolic syndrome on the rise, there’s a possibility that all these symptoms such as hypertension, high cholesterol, insulin resistance and obesity all have the same underlying cause.
As you may already know, high blood pressure is caused from inflammation as is insulin resistance, high cholesterol and even obesity.
Dealing with inflammation puts you ahead of the game. It’s certainly better than blindly treating your high blood pressure with drugs not knowing what the cause of it is in the first place.
Treating your hypertension without knowing what the cause is can only help with symptoms for a short period of time. Removing the cause of your high blood pressure is the only way to cure it and if your insulin resistance has the same cause, you get two birds with one stone.
Perhaps there is one solution to all these health problems, after all.
Seriously, if your doctor can’t tell you what the cause of your high blood pressure is, then why in the world would you volunteer to take high blood pressure drugs that can harm you with side effects?
I mentioned the correlation of high blood pressure and insulin resistance because 50% of people have both conditions and the fact is both can be cured with diet and exercise. So, why not take a more holistic look at your hypertension and other inflammation issues?
Perhaps being healthy isn’t as complicated as “they” make it sound.
There are real lasting solutions to all these problems, including hypertension. That would make all these harmful high blood pressure drugs totally unnecessary.
Ask your doctor!
