    Metabolic Syndrome?

    I couldn't make this up.

    In my world, we call these people fat.

    They do not have a 'syndrome'
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    It's the whole Syndrome X concept paulie.

    Type II diabetes-high cholesterol-heart disease thing. some lump hypothyroid with it too. But it's that basic profile thing. curiously concurrent with the induction of the 60%carb diet/low fat diet guidelines.

    Hypothyroidism is thought to be very rare (what the docs say).I don't believe it though.

    They might be fat, but why are they fat. Answer, they have a medical disorder. Don't get me wrong. Chances are these people could have prevented this disorder.

    yeah...a colorado epidemiological came up with a figure of 1 in 20 people being hypo in the middle unites states though. (from subclinical to fullblown)

    also...judging from the values used for lab ranges (which they figure out by using a sample population to arrive at "normal") i would say there are a lot more out there subclinical than not, because i feel like crap at the high normal range.

    ran into this lawyer in an elevator at the courthouse today that just got diagnosed as hypo as a smatter of fact. i thought it was kinda cool.
