Hello,
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
Metabolic syndrome is a difficult medical problem and brings long term complications if left untreated. The traditional medicines are a bit unreliable and may have significant untold toxicities.
Taking aspirin and diovan is okay. CoQ10 has been often prescribed but is of unproven value, although theoretically seems quite attractive but on real grounds has not shown promise.
It is better that you consult an endocrinologist and a physician of your locality and take treatment and do a regular follow up according to the response.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.
