Metabolic Disorders

Vcure provides a holistic care plan for individuals suffering from metabolic disorders. We analyse lifestyle habits and measure the person's weight, body fat percentage, blood sugar levels and other factors to determine whether there is a need to adjust the diet and/or exercise regimen and if needed, medications.
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that put people at higher risk for heart disease and stroke. The main feature of metabolic syndrome is insulin resistance, which increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes. With proper lifestyle changes and medications (if needed), we can help you improve your health and lower your risks.
