It is estimated that a quarter of the world population including more and more children are suffering from Metabolic Syndrome. It is truly a disease of our modern society and of human beings as the so-called ‘top predator’.
The treatment options currently look at this as a collection of symptoms and signs and approach it as such. Therefore we need innovative ways to deal with this subject. Bioregulatory Systems Medicine offers a viable adjuvant and even a stand-alone treatment for this syndrome and practitioners need to know all the tools that they have to manage this.
Being a cardio-metabolic dysregulation disease with an underlying non-resolving inflammatory component it has severe consequences for the patient and healthcare in general. In an ageing society this becomes even more important to address.
There is a massive amount of on-going research on this topic that reflects the medical need and the impact on society. The most fascinating fact about this topic is that it is one of the first diseases that was and is discussed in the Systems Medicine Community, thereby reflecting again the need to approach this disease from a different viewpoint.
