Metabolic syndrome refers to a set of disease risk factors that appear to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. It is also known as insulin resistance syndrome.

A cluster of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

The American Heart Association (AHA)describe it as a “cluster of metabolic disorders,” that includes high blood pressure, high fasting glucose levels, and abdominal obesity, which, combined, increase the risk of heart disease.

Metabolic syndrome includes high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels.

According to the AHA, a doctor will often consider metabolic syndrome if a person has  3 of the following symptoms:

1. Obesity, specifically, a waist size of more than 40 inches in men and more than 35 inches in women

2.Fasting blood glucose levels of 100 mg/dL or above

3.Blood pressure of 130/85 mm/Hg or above

4.Blood triglycerides levels of 150 mg/dL or higher

5.High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels of 40 mg/dL or less for men and 50 mg/dL or less for women


Causes of Metabolic Syndrome:

°  Having central obesity or overweight is a major factor, but abnormal blood lipid and cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and prediabetes also contribute to cardiometabolic risk.

°  Unavoidable risk factors, such as family history and ethnic background, can increase the chance of developing this. 

°  However, lifestyle choices can impact all these factors.

°  A diet that is high in fat and sugar, together with a lack of exercise, has been associated with the development of obesity and related conditions.

Treatment of metabolic syndrome:

The main treatment lies in correcting our lifestyle. This is how you can do it :
