Metabolic disorders are a broad category of medical conditions that affect the body's ability to process and use nutrients, leading to an imbalance in the body's metabolic processes. Some common examples of metabolic disorders include diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and cholesterol.
The internal medicine team of Aster Whitefield Hospital provides individualized treatment to patients.
Treatment of metabolic disorders varies depending on the specific disorder and its severity. In many cases, lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise may be recommended as a first-line treatment. For example, in the case of diabetes or obesity, a healthy diet and regular exercise can help to regulate blood sugar levels and promote weight loss.
In some cases, medication may be necessary to manage symptoms or correct underlying metabolic imbalances.
In more severe cases, surgery or other medical interventions may be necessary. For example, in the case of severe obesity, bariatric surgery may be recommended to help promote weight loss and improve metabolic health.
Treatment for hypertension i.e. increased blood pressure often involves lifestyle modifications such as exercise and dietary changes, as well as medication to lower blood pressure.
Cholesterol is a fatty substance that can build up in the blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart disease. Treatment for high cholesterol often involves lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise and a healthy diet, as well as medication such as statins to lower cholesterol levels.
In some cases, treatment for hypertension and high cholesterol may overlap, as both conditions can increase the risk of heart disease.
