A group of 14 tests that provide important information about the
status of kidneys, liver, electrolyte and acid/base balance,
blood sugar and blood proteins. A broad screening tool, the CMP
is also used to monitor complications of diseases or side
effects of some medications.
C-reactive protein (CRP)
One of the plasma proteins known as acute-phase proteins:
proteins whose plasma concentrations increase (or decrease) by
25% or more during inflammatory disorders. CRP is a test of
value in medicine, reflecting the presence and intensity of
inflammation although an elevation in C-reactive protein is not
the absolute diagnostic sign of any one condition. Inflammation
is believed to play a major role in the development of coronary
artery disease; markers of inflammation have been tested in
respect to heart health. In a recent study, CRP was found to be
the only marker of inflammation that independently predicts the
risk of a heart attack.
Primarily sugars and starches which constitute one of the three
principal types of nutrients (carbohydrates, fats and proteins)
used as energy sources (calories) by the body. Carbohydrates
come in complex forms such as starches and fiber and simple
forms such as sugars. Most sugars and starches are broken down
by the body into glucose, a simple sugar that can be used to
A physician who is certified to treat problems of the
cardiovascular system—the heart, arteries and veins, all key
areas damaged by Metabolic Syndrome. Cardiology is classified an
internal medicine subspecialty. Knowledge of internal medicine
and other specialties is required to obtain certification.
A disease affecting the blood vessels or heart.
The body's most common type of steroid, it is crucial to the
formation of Vitamin D, sex hormones (progesterone, estrogens
and androgens), mineralocortcoid hormones (aldosterone) and
glucocorticoid hormones (cortisol) and bile acids (for digestion
of fat). It is carried in the blood stream as lipoproteins, e.g.
LDL (low density lipoproteins) or “good” cholesterol and HDL
(high density lipoproteins) or “bad” cholesterol. Cholesterol is
also essential for cell membrane function.
A trace mineral considered essential to health, it is linked to
the production of glucose tolerance factor (GTF) which affects
insulin binding receptors and thus, stability of blood glucose
levels. It is also involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
A biologically active chromium salt containing three picolinic
acid ligands that is used as a dietary supplement.
Cimetidine belongs to a class of medications called H2-blockers
that inhibit the action of histamine on the stomach cells, thus
reducing stomach acid production.
Coronary heart disease (Coronary artery disease)
Coronary heart disease (or coronary artery disease) is the most
common form of heart disease and affects the blood vessels (or
coronary arteries) of the heart. It causes angina (chest pain)
and heart attacks. High blood pressure and cholesterol, smoking,
obesity and not being physically active all put individuals at
risk for coronary heart disease.
A hormone released in the body during stressed or agitated
states. But cortisol is more than a simple marker of stress
levels - it is necessary for the functioning of almost every
part of the body. Made in the adrenal glands, adjacent to the
kidneys, it has important roles in the regulation of blood
pressure and cardiovascular functions, key areas affected by
Metabolic Syndrome. Cortisol also helps to regulate the body's
use of proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
"I have been on the Insulite
System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver
functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I
was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the
AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in
years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has
changed my life.
I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program.
Your product is fantastic. I have
cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing
weight again after being
"stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4
starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is
well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is
better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control
between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather
than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months
supply. Thank you!"
"Obesity is no longer an American disease. Globalization's bounty—economic development, lowered trade costs, and rising incomes—has turned it into a worldwide pandemic for rich and poor alike. If it's left unchecked, the economic health of developing countries will surely be crushed under the weight."
"I cannot believe the difference
the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has
changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my
appetite is somewhat diminished."
"There is a clear and consistent scientific literature showing pervasive bias against overweight people. It is logical that the bias begets discrimination. There is now sufficient evidence of discrimination to suggest it may be powerful and occurs across important areas of living.
Studies on employment have shown hiring prejudice in laboratory studies. Subjects report being less inclined to hire an overweight person than a thin person, even with identical qualifications. Individuals make negative inferences about obese persons in the workplace, feeling that such people are lazy, lack self-discipline, and are less competent. One might expect these attributions to affect wages, promotions, and disciplinary actions, and such seems to be the case.
Overweight women, for the same work, receive less pay than their thin counterparts. This does not seem to be the case for men, but overweight men sort themselves into lower-level jobs. There is evidence that promotion prospects are dimmer for overweight individuals, and there are many examples of people being fired on account of excess weight."
"I wanted to let you know how much I
appreciate your caring advice and guiding me towards taking control of my health.
It's hard to express in
words how long I have been trying to find the answers you have so easily
provided for me.
I am so excited about the positive changes in my health and I
can't wait to see where I am six months from now, yet alone the year. Thank

"Middle-age people who are overweight but have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels are kidding themselves if they think their health is just fine."
"Northwestern University researchers tracked 17,643 patients for three decades and found that being overweight in mid-life substantially increased the risk of dying of heart disease later in life even in people who began the study with healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels."
"Thank you so much for putting me on
the right road!"
"Simply losing 5-7% of your body fat (typically 10-15 pounds) and increasing your physical activity by taking a brisk walk 4-5 times a week can reduce your risk of developing Type
II Diabetes by almost 60%."
"The United States is experiencing an epidemic of obesity. Thirty-four percent of adults are overweight and an additional 30% are obese. Thus, 2 of every 3 Americans have an unhealthy body weight. Obesity contributes to over 300,000 deaths per year, principally through its association with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and several cancers. Obesity currently is the second leading cause of preventable death and will soon surpass cigarette smoking, the leading cause. Health economists estimate that obesity costs our nation approximately $100 billion a year. And these figures say nothing about the personal suffering of those affected by obesity."
"I started your product and found
it really boosts my system,
helping me get off ground zero, and stop the spiral downwards.
It gave me the
energy to start exercising and prepare healthy meals.
You are all very supportive, even though I am on the other side
of the world
(Australia). I am very glad that I am on your product, your
are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit
harder. Thank you for everything."
