H

HDL Cholesterol (High Density Lipoprotein)

Also known as the "good" cholesterol, high density lipoproteins transport cholesterol from the body's tissues to the liver so that it can be eradicated in the bile. Combinations of lipids (fats) and proteins, lipoproteins are the form in which lipids are transported in the blood. The greater the level of HDL cholesterol, the lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Hyperaldosteronism

A disease caused by an excess production of the normal adrenal hormone, aldosterone. This hormone is responsible for sodium and potassium balance, which then directly controls water balance to maintain appropriate blood pressure and blood volume. People with a deficiency of aldosterone, especially found in association with cortisol deficiency in Addison's disease, have low blood volume and therefore low blood pressure, low sodium and high potassium. Just the opposite is seen in hyperaldosteronism. Hyperaldosteronism causes high blood pressure and low serum potassium. The serum sodium is usually in the normal range. This is a rare disease and is an unusual cause of hypertension. It is usually considered by physicians if they find unexpectedly low potassium in an individual being treated for hypertension. It generally causes no other specific symptoms or signs. The physical examination in people with hyperaldosteronism is totally normal. There are two types of hyperaldosteronism: it can occur from hyperplasia in both adrenal glands or from a benign (rarely malignant) tumor of one of the adrenal glands. When the cause is a single adrenal tumor, it is labeled Conn's Syndrome.

Hyperglycemia

Literally, too much (hyper) sugar (glykos) in the blood.

Hyperinsulimia

Elevated insulin in the blood.

Hyperlipidemia

High lipid (fat) levels in the blood.

Hypertension

Also known as high blood pressure, this condition is abnormally high pressure or tension measured as resistance in the arteries to the force of heart contractions resulting in pressure variances.

Hypertriglyceridemia

Abnormal elevation of triglycerides in the blood.

"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 lbs since 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 you again!"

"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."
Obesity may be an independent risk factor for heart problems, MSNBC

"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 Insulite System



Article by Dr. Sheri Colberg, Phd, FACSM


"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 weekly messages are also very encouraging, when I am finding things a bit harder. Thank you for everything."
