You Can Manage Your Metabolic Risk and We’ll Show You How

The Medical Nutritional Institute (2) invites you to a workshop designed to prevent MetS. We will help you to identify the factors that increase the risk to you and your family and we’ll explore practical, effective ways to manage these risks.

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a combination of risk factors that together increase the risk of serious conditions such as diabetes, heart attacks and strokes, liver disease and even certain types of cancer. Our modern lifestyle puts the entire family at risk of MetS, which is becoming increasingly common in younger people.

We will discuss… 

  • What is metabolic syndrome and why should we be concerned?
  • Understanding the consequences, causes and risks of MetS.
  • How to create your personal risk profile.
  • Learning how to lower your risk through simple lifestyle interventions.
  • Simple, sustainable dietary strategies that can make a big impact with our dietician
  • Why physical activity is another effective strategy and our biokineticist will describes the most effective activities to improve your family’s activity level.
