Anyone have metabolic syndrome?

A nurse told me I have metabolic syndrome over a year ago. I’ve lost 20 lbs since then so maybe I don’t have it anymore.

I got this off of Webmd

Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself. Instead, it’s a group of risk factors – high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unhealthy cholesterol levels, and abdominal fat.

I was really concerned about diabetes. I guess losing weight is the only option. I was put on Metformin for this.


I have never heard of it, but glad to hear you are doing better.


Thanks @Saywhaat. My blood sugar scared me the most. It was above the normal range just barely.

Yeah health scares are definitely really scary.


Losing weight is a great idea @TheBest. At different times I was able to lose a little, my doctor told me that my diabetes type 2 was practically gone, that my blood tests were closer to normal than diabetic.

That’s great @eighteyedspy23. Diabetes is scary to think about. Were you on insulin at any point?

No, just meds. Metformin and glimepiride at first, later on my doctor added Januvia. I don’t even check my blood, I hate having to draw blood. Just saw my doctor on Wednesday and she said everything is fine.
