Dear patient,

Your husband is suffering from a condition called metabolic syndrome, in which overweight or obesity drive an inflammatory response, that includes fatty liver infiltration and impaired fasting glucose as a consequence of insulin resistance. The most important thing for him is to lose weight, at least 8-10% of his current weight gradually, with diet and a strict regimen of aerobic exercise of at least 150 minutes weekly. If not paid attention to, metabolic syndrome can progress to diabetes and hypertension.

Yours truly,
