Pritikin Metabolic Syndrome Treatment

Led by our experienced team of physicians, metabolic syndrome treatment at the Pritikin Longevity Center focuses on controlling the Metabolic Syndrome, which can greatly reduce your risk of a heart attack. Scientific research has found that for many the Pritikin Program reverses the syndrome.
  • 50% reversed the clinical diagnosis of the Metabolic Syndrome
    In 50% of men studied, the Pritikin Program reversed the clinical diagnosis of the Metabolic Syndrome. (Journal of Applied Physiology, 2006; 100: 1657.)

  • 33% reduction in triglyceride levels
    Analyses of 4,587 guests staying at Pritikin for three weeks showed an average 33% reduction in triglyceride levels. Archives of Internal Medicine, 151: 1389, 1991. See also New England Journal of Medicine, 323: 1142, 1990.

  • 83% lowered blood pressure to normal, medication-free levels
    Among 216 adults who entered the Pritikin Center taking pills for hypertension, 83% left Pritikin free of these pills, and with significant reductions in blood pressure. Most of the remaining 17% had their pill dosages substantially reduced. Journal of Cardiac Rehabilitation, 3: 839, 1983. See also Circulation, 106: 2530, 2002.

You probably have the Metabolic Syndrome if you have three or more of the following five risk factors: belly fat, high triglycerides, low HDL “good” cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar.

Having the Metabolic Syndrome puts you at major risk for both diabetes and heart disease. Experts believe that in the next decade roughly 80% of all heart attacks will be due to the Metabolic Syndrome, Type 2 diabetes, or both.

Overview of a One-Week Program at the Pritikin Center

People come to Pritikin for many reasons, including reversal of heart disease and diabetes, lowering of blood pressure to normal levels, or simply losing weight and getting in shape.

Most come to prevent disease – particularly baby-boomers who saw their parents struggle with heart attacks, strokes, and other ills, and are asking: “Can I age better? Can I stay vibrant and healthy for years to come?” Pritikin provides the results they desire, and in a beautiful vacation resort.

On Saturday guests arrive for orientation and tours of the Pritikin facilities as well as the surrounding 650 acres of lush tropical gardens, pools, and championship golf courses.

Sunday begins with state-of-the-art blood panels and a 1-hour consultation with a board-certified physician that involves a complete history and physical, and analysis of health and weight-loss goals. Next, under the supervision of doctors and exercise physiologists, guests take a treadmill stress test to determine their fitness levels and personal exercise prescriptions. They also review “elective” exercise interests they can enjoy at Pritikin, such as golf and tennis.
