Metabolic Syndrome

Our bodies are designed to handle approximately 4-5 teaspoons of sugar daily—the average person consumes nearly 20 times that amount. This excessive sugar intake overwhelms our glucose metabolism, leading to a cascade of health issues such as hormone disruption, fatigue, weight gain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease.

Metabolic syndrome has become an epidemic in the United States, affecting millions and contributing to serious health conditions. At The James Clinic, we offer a comprehensive and personalized approach to help patients reverse pre-diabetes and take control of their metabolic health.

Have you experienced limited screening tests, such as only HgA1c, with no deeper insights into your metabolic health? Are you frustrated by CGM usage being restricted only to patients on insulin, leaving you without crucial data? Have you noticed a lack of supplement recommendations, no evaluations for oxidative stress, and limited treatment options that primarily rely on prescriptions? Are you tired of hearing the same “eat less, exercise more” advice from standard resources like the ADA, with little success? If so, you’re not alone. 

James Clinic Treatment

We go beyond conventional methods by addressing the root causes of metabolic dysfunction. In contrast, our approach to metabolic syndrome offers comprehensive support and tailored interventions. We provide advanced screening tests, use CGMs for a broader range of patients, incorporate beneficial supplements, evaluate oxidative stress, and offer diverse treatment options beyond standard prescriptions. 

Comprehensive Initial Lab Testing

We begin with thorough lab testing to gain a complete understanding of your current metabolic health. This helps us identify any imbalances or underlying issues that need to be addressed.

Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM)

For most patients, we utilize continuous glucose monitors (CGM) to provide real-time data on glucose levels. This allows us to understand your unique glucose metabolism and make precise adjustments to your treatment plan.

Flattening Glucose Spikes & Improving Insulin Sensitivity

Our primary focus is on stabilizing glucose levels and enhancing insulin sensitivity. By reducing glucose spikes, we help your body manage sugar more effectively, reducing the risk of metabolic disorders.

Weight Loss Through Improved Cellular Health

Weight loss is a natural consequence of our approach, which prioritizes improving cellular health. As your cells become healthier and more efficient, your body naturally sheds excess weight.

Personalized Dietary Strategies

We employ a variety of dietary strategies tailored to your individual needs, including:

  • Keto Diet: High-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that promotes fat burning.
  • Low Carb Diet: Reducing carbohydrate intake to stabilize blood sugar levels.
  • Intermittent Fasting: Structured eating windows to improve insulin sensitivity and promote fat loss.
  • Minimizing Glucose Spikes: Focusing on foods that maintain steady glucose levels throughout the day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here you’ll find the answers to help you make informed decisions about your health journey.

Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) provide real-time data on your glucose levels, allowing us to understand your unique glucose metabolism better. This information helps us tailor your treatment plan more precisely, focusing on flattening glucose spikes and improving insulin sensitivity. CGMs are instrumental in providing actionable insights that lead to more effective management of metabolic health.

We recommend the book “Glucose Revolution” for valuable insights and practical tips on managing blood sugar levels. We also offer a Metabolic Balance Supplement Stack specifically designed to support metabolic health, which you can find here. Supplements such as omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and probiotics can also support metabolic health. You do not have to be a patient to purchase supplements from our online store.
