It is also known as insulin resistance syndrome and dysmetabolic syndrome. The conditions included in metabolic syndrome are high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar levels, increased body fat around the waist, and an imbalance in cholesterol or triglyceride levels. Having only one condition does not mean you have metabolic syndrome but you might have certain serious complications. Here in this article, we shall be discussing all the aspects of metabolic syndrome, its causes, symptoms, and management in modern as well as the Indian system of medicine.

Syndrome X Or Metabolic Syndrome


Metabolic syndrome is a syndrome in which there is a combination of heart disease, stroke, and noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus which is responsible for all the pathological conditions. A person is diagnosed with metabolic syndrome when he/she has three or more following conditions:

  1. High blood sugar levels
  2. Increased triglycerides in the blood
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Huge waist circumference (apple-shaped body)
  5. Low levels of good cholesterol (LDL)

As described each condition elevates the risk of cardiovascular disease but having more than three conditions increases the complication of cardiovascular condition and hence called metabolic syndrome. It may lead to fatty buildup in the arteries, the condition is known as atherosclerosis. The foremost common cause includes metabolic syndrome, physical inactivity, and faulty dietary habits that imbalance the triglyceride. The metabolism of a person is hampered hence it is called a dysmetabolic syndrome. It is also called insulin resistance syndrome since it is associated with hyperinsulinemia, uptake of the blood sugar is hampered due to cells becoming resistant to insulin. Metabolic syndrome or syndrome X is related to strotoavrodha (obstruction of stotras or channels) in the body and insulin resistance can be related to the kapha average.

Ayurveda is an Indian system of medicine that existed thousands of years ago. It believes in holistic healing through nature and herbs. It is very effective in managing diseases by correcting their root cause. In ayurveda vitiation of strotas is responsible for the development of any kind of disease inside the body. Metabolic syndrome is related to shrotodhusti (vitiation of doshas). In any kind of disease nidan (causative factors) causes dosha dusty (vitiation) and these vitiated doshas get collected  in strotas (strotodhusti). And if favorable conditions occur, disease conditions arise. Vata dosha has a tendency to move frequently throughout the body in microchannels as well when dosha dust occurs, especially kapha dosha in metabolic syndrome the movement of vata ceases, giving the symptoms of kapha ovarian.

Management protocol of sorts dusti here involves cleansing of channels so that all the dosha work together in harmony and vata dosha restores its flowing nature. Some rejuvenation (rasayana) therapies are also helpful like shilajit & Guggulu (Comiphora mukul) along with milk can be helpful. Chyavanprasha is a rasyanic formulation according to ancient texts is also beneficial.
