What is Metabolic Health?
Factors that can negatively impact your metabolic health can include poor sleep, stress, lack of exercise, poor diet, smoking, and weight gain.
It is estimated that more than 35 per cent of Australian adults currently meet criteria for metabolic syndrome, which can develop as a result of elevated blood pressure, blood sugar, waist circumference and cholesterol levels. These risk factors can put you at increased risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes or kidney disease.
Consequently, metabolic syndrome is a group of disorders that can include obesity, increased waist size, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
A sedentary lifestyle can often be a major cause of disorders associated with metabolic syndrome.
For example, the average Australian sits about 10 hours a day, which increases the risk of metabolic syndrome and other complications such as muscle degeneration, osteoporosis and the risk of developing diabetes, cancer or heart disease by 40 percent.
Lifestyle Breakthrough provides a kick-start guide to educate and support clients to incorporate health-focused changes that can lead to better metabolic health.
According to the Lifestyle Breakthrough team of medical and health professionals, just 30 minutes of activity a day can provide tremendous health benefits, such as: Such as lowering blood pressure, regulating healthy blood sugar levels and improving mental health.
